coming out 

Hey so I'm coming out as bisexual, and it's all thanks to Mastodon. Just kidding. But only a little. ashfurrow.com/blog/coming-out/

coming out 

Okay so update on this: after coming out, I hadn’t really spoken to any coworkers about this, even though everyone at Artsy is really cool.

And so I finally opened up, and then I got welcomed to Artsy’s Slack channel, which was awesome! And... it just felt so good to be supported by my coworkers ☺️

@ashfurrow The most important is you to feel good as you are. Have a nice day!

coming out 

@ashfurrow that's a really lovely essay and some good links and wonderful thoughts! I wish I could put my processes down in words as crisply as you do, Ash ... I feel some kinship with the realization you share here and don't quite know what to do with it :)

Thanks for sharing!

@ashfurrow ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜 I’ve never really understood the part where people only love men or only love women. I love a person, and it doesn’t matter to me what their gender is. Because I ended up marrying a man, a lot of people would describe me as cis, but I don’t think I am, at least not 100%.

And yes, as you wrote, Ashley is a wonderful person. Please give her my best too - miss you both! 💕

@ashfurrow congrats, this is a very brave thing to do, especially in a marriage! I'm so glad to see you accepting a part of yourself and thanks for the links!

@ashfurrow all Jokes have a grain of truth in them 😍

Re: coming out 

@ashfurrow also, Yey. I'm happy we helped you along the way.

I kind of want to write a meta post about you and @zigg now, and some other folks I've seen make these journeys with us.

I'm probably doing it without names (blog post), but wouldn't mind linking to yours if it's okay?

Re: coming out 

@maloki So I know that I’ve written a number of things and they’re fair game but I feel weird about someone else (even someone I trust, like you!) writing about my story here. I feel more comfortable writing my own story, when I want to, right? But the simple fact that I did feel comfortable and supported here seems fine to say. 🙂 @ashfurrow

coming out 

@ashfurrow Hooray for good feelings all around! Things like this remind me that it isn't all just blah all the time. :)

coming out 

@ashfurrow Yay, I’m so happy for you!

coming out 

@ashfurrow Ash, I don't know the back story on your decision so I'm not sure if you were struggling with it or not. But, glad to see you are at peace with being you. 👍

coming out 

@ashfurrow Ah, read your blog post. Once again, glad you're at peace with it.
