Just when I thought the girls were too shy or tired to ask us questions during an LGBTQ workshop, one of them piped up: “So, we can ask anything?” My most memorable part of Camp GLOW for Nicaraguan girls, and of 2016, was when the girls asked me about my experience as a queer woman. The girls asked me very personal questions, including:
Q. How old were you when you realized you were gay?
Q. What was your first relationship with a woman like?
Q. What’s been the hardest part of being gay for you?
Q. How did your friends react when you were gay?
