who is Elizabeth Peters?

I am a gay woman. I’m out now, but I wasn’t always. Even now there are times when I don’t disclose that I’m a lesbian. You probably wouldn’t recognize me as gay on the street, and it’s not because I’m hiding, it’s simply because my style doesn’t reveal me.

I didn’t always identify as a lesbian, although I have been attracted to women for as long as I can remember. I had a straight life…it wasn’t a lie, but my wanting women was a secret.  Eventually, life changed.  I have been out for many years now.

I know there are women out there who either entertain the notion of being with women, or live lives touched by women, in secret.  And those of us who are out, know women who live straight lives, hidden behind the facades, flying under the radar.  I am interested in exploring some of those stories…welcome to the conversation!
