1. Well said. Living a lie, no matter how large or small, is a hard, hard road. Good for Bruce to finally find his own way and be who he felt he always should have been. I applaud courage like that.

    1. I so appreciate you sharing your thoughts here, and I, too, applaud Bruce and anyone who lives out loud without fear. We have one life, and we need to embrace it and live it fully and genuinely. Glad that you understood what I was attempting to convey!


  2. Beautifully written and well said. I have come to believe that kindness is more powerful than people may know or believe. One of my favorite quotes: ” Kindness is possible even if fondness is not” thank you for sharing.

  3. Kristi , this is a terrific synopsis of what I saw as well. It was a joy to see his family support such a major life undertaking. It is amazing to me how long he carried this version of himself for so long from world class male athlete to husband and father, but questioning himself all along the way. Good post, BTG

    1. I so appreciate your positive feedback, as I was not sure if I captured all of the thoughts and feelings I have held since seeing this well enough for others to understand. Thanks for making me feel like I did:)

    In about half a million years’ time the male ‘Y’ chromosome will no longer exist. Perhaps humans will become hermaphrodites? And by then hopefully we’ll finally have learned to be accepting and welcoming of each other’s differences. Here’s hoping…

  5. Well said Kristi. There are many who disagree, and yet, for me, the key criteria is truth. Regardless of the impact in the physical world, being true to yourself and to others is the only real way to live. Thank You.

    1. Paul, thank you for taking the time to read this and to share your insightful comments. The truth is definitely the key to life, and my heart goes out to anyone, who for whatever reason, believes they cannot be true to themselves or others.
