Happy 4th of July to my fellow Americans! As stated on Queer Town Abbey: “As most of you know, equal rights are something that the GLBT community has been fighting for across the world for some time now. The right to marry whomever we love. The right to be protected against discrimination in the workplace. The right to be protected from acts of violence that stem from who and what we are. We are making gains in some areas–many more countries are recognizing same-sex marriages as a legal right. We are losing ground in others, such as the increase in state-sanctioned violence against homosexuals in Russia and transgendered people in Greece. July the 4th marks the celebration of Independence Day in the United States. We invite you to take place in a blog hop, hosted by Queer Town Abbey to celebrate our own march toward independence!”

For this blog hop we were asked to tell readers about our first experience in the LGBT community. I’m going to go through my first to last (so far) experiences, which happened during happy times in my life.
My first experiences were when I was a kid…playing with other females in the neighborhood and at camp, playing doctor, bondage games, kissing, showering together. Though nothing ever went anywhere, there were whispers about “what we were.”
Then in college, I met this wonderful man who happened to be bi. We had the best time checking out guys and girls and joking with each other about who saw them first and going to showings of the ‘Rocky Horror Picture Show.’
After I was married, hubby and I had a party one night and one of my friends and I kissed. Just a peck, but she did tell me I’d make a bad lesbian. LOL! So much for the incidents in my youth, right? I had another friend who happened to be a bi/dominatrix. She was a hoot to hang out with, too.
I guess it’s fitting that I’m now writing about all sorts of relationships and the love and happiness that can be found in them. If you want to learn about my first book, The Encounter, feel free to click on the pic to the right or find it from the Books link above.
