In and Out by Colleen Elizabeth McTigue

colleen01In and Out
I once wanted to fit In.
Now I want to fit Out.
Transsexual, bisexual, polyamorous, lesbian, queer, female…
All these identities and more I claim for my self.
Layer upon layer of self, to be
embraced or rejected,
denigrateded or respected,
celebrated or tolerated.
Longing for community
With those alike, yet
different.
Longing to be Out, to be Free…
I am told to fit In, or get Out.
