*Content Warning: discussions of racism, police violence
Welcome to episode 2 of Rebelliously Tiny.Here’s this week’s question: “hi sweetheart, i need to talk about something. a few months ago, i started questioning my sexuality because i had a crush on one of my same-sex friends. i had tried to discover my sexuality a couple times before, but i kept thinking that i was straight. now, im not sure. my main problem is that i dont know whether my thoughts are real, or if im just doing this because of one crush. ive already talked about this to some friends who are lgbt+ themselves, but im so scared that i might just be imagining all of this, and that i offended my friends whose feelings are actually real. i wouldnt have a problem with being gay, bi, pan, straight or whatever; i just have a problem with not knowing if what i feel is real. thanks for listening, i love your blog a lot!!”
We were lucky to have Lux help us answer our question this week. Ambivalently Yours met Lux at a drawing workshop, and has since been inspired by their use of social media to start conversations. We talk with Lux about sexuality, race, gender, and how to navigate difficult, intimate and important discussions about tough issues. We learn a lot from Lux and along the way we laugh about Gilmore Girls and first crushes.
