I wrote “That’s What You Do” many years before I came out of the closet. And while I have been out for some time, I wish for just a quick chance to go back and give the most healing hug to that Freddy who wrote this song.
I want to let him know that despite the paralyzing doubts, he will be loved and accepted. He will be surrounded by the kindest humans who support and encourage his growth. He will travel far and make family everywhere he goes. All because he has been liberated by his truth.
Sharing this song is that hug.
Today is #NationalComingOutDay and I’d like to honor all who are struggling with their identity. I offer my story to let you know that you’re not nearly as alone as you feel.
