Not a girl
So. I came into the <a href="https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.glow.android.eve">Eve</a> community as an awkward 14 year old girl named Lillibelle. I’d just been outed to the entire school by one of my best friends. I started cutting. I had relationship problems with my parents. Then I went into high school.
Some of it was bad: the teachers were homophobic/transphobic, and some of them didn’t know the first thing about teaching. But I met an extensive community of LGBTQ+ people who I quickly made my friends.
But I felt lost. This school wasn’t right. Nothing was right. I somehow managed not to smile for three months. My parents pulled me out to begin homeschooling. It was fine for a while, but one of the disadvantages of homeschooling is that you’re with your parents. All. The. Time. Our relationship deteriorated.
And all this time, what was I doing? Having an identity crisis.
And I finally understood why I didn’t feel right.
I’m not a girl.
So, I’d like to reintroduce myself.
My name is Leo.
