What have you done for love?
A reader answered by email (email@example.com)
“I am a lesbian. After three years with a wonderful woman, she revealed to me that she’d always felt she was a male inside, a man in the wrong body. Obviously, a heterosexual man.
She went through the changes- therapy, hormones, name change, family and friends’ reactions, job changes and finally surgery. I went through it all with her, now him. I loved the person I loved. Whether female or male, it’s the same person.
And that’s what I did for love- I became heterosexual.
It was a mistake.
After many years, I realized I was the one living a lie.
My husband supported me as I once supported him- and we divorced. As I said at the start- I am a lesbian.”
