“Coming out for gay people is a process, not a one-time event. Some days you feel free, open, and ready to piss on the world if they care what you do in bed. On other days, even if you’ve been out to yourself and others, you’re ready to hide in the darkest closet—because sometimes it is safer, easier, and more secure to hide.”
Mark Richard Zubro, Why Isn't Becky Twitchell Dead?

“The announcer on WFMT, a major fine-arts station in Chicago, droned in his usual calm voice”
