November 8, 2013 in Out in Print by Terri Schlichenmeyer

The straight of it?

February 18, 2012 in Out in Print by Terri Schlichenmeyer

For most of your life, people have been making decisions without you. When you were born, for instance, they decided whether you were a boy or a girl (admittedly, based on obvious visual clues).

‘Remembering Christmas’

December 10, 2011 in Out in Print by Terri Schlichenmeyer

It’s funny how we remember special things we got for Christmas at the same time we remember things we didn’t get.

Andrea Myers’ ‘Choosing’

November 26, 2011 in Out in Print by Terri Schlichenmeyer

From the moment you entered the world, squalling and wet, your parents had many expectations for you. They expected you to grow up with morals, decency and kindness, strength and smarts.

June 11, 2011 in Out in Print by Terri Schlichenmeyer

There are few things in life that you need, other than clothes and food. You need love: someone to curl up with, to re-hash the day, to warm your feet. You need strength to get through the drama. And you need to know you’re on the right path in life.

Gay, Straight, and the Reason Why

December 25, 2010 in Out in Print by admin
