A gay writer is just a regular guy, says a new book, but you might be surprised at how different he is from the average writer.
The author, Kristie Toy, tells us how she overcame the stigma and the fear she faced to become a gay, lesbian and transgender (LGBT) writer.
I’ve had my ups and downs, but my whole life has been about being a good, loyal, loyal writer.
And I’ve always found that being a gay or lesbian writer is really easy, especially with my work.
I’m always a person that’s very supportive of my gay friends.
Kristie Toy (Photo: Kristie Toys)I grew up with a lot of homophobia and discrimination in the United States.
We grew up in rural and suburban areas, where we weren’t exposed to the gay culture.
I remember my dad telling me that my family was not going to be accepted by the whole world, that the only people they were going to accept were their gay friends and their gay relatives.

I really never felt any of that stigma.
I was always, “Oh my god, I don’t know if I can be a writer.”
I remember having to wear makeup and wearing lipstick, but I didn’t have any other people who were really going to judge me for it.
I just felt I was just the kind of person that had to deal with it.
I started out writing to just a few friends and just because it was my only outlet.
I did that for a little while and I started getting letters, and I was like, “Wait, is this the real world?”
It wasn’t until I was older that I was able to write to my own friends and my family and people who I was going to work with, so I was really proud to say that I did it.
It’s very empowering for me to be able to put that into writing and being out to people.
It was really inspiring to be honest with myself.
I had a very strict code of what I was supposed to be doing and what I wasn’t supposed to do and I just kept thinking, “I’m not going [to] be able do this anymore, so this is what I’m going to do.”
Kristie says she felt like a failure because she had always been good, honest and straight, and she felt she was “just not good enough.”
It was a time of growing up in a small town in Oklahoma.
Kristies mother died when she was 16.
Her dad was a retired Army captain.
Kristi was raised by a single mom who worked two jobs to provide for the family.
She said she had to learn how to be her own boss because she couldn’t go to a real job.
KristI just felt like there wasn’t a good outlet for me.
I felt like I had to be the best writer that I could be, and that was very hard.
Kristis mom died when Kristi was 16, and her father was a decorated war veteran.
Kristi says that was really a big moment for her and a big turning point for her as a writer.
She realized that she had a lot to learn.
I think she thought, “Wow, I’ve been really bad at this, so if I just keep trying I can actually do something good.”
She had to get into a writing class and she had really bad grades and I remember going to her parents house and she was crying.
She had really high expectations for herself, and it was such a hard place to be.
I really wanted to be somebody that everyone was proud of.
And that was something I didn´t know.
It wasn´t something I could see myself doing.
It was just so frustrating.
Kristys dad got into writing classes and he was a great teacher and he gave me a great sense of accomplishment.
I knew that was going nowhere.
Kristia says she was a writer because she wanted to, but it wasn’t something that was in her blood.
She wanted to pursue something she really enjoyed, and writing helped her.
I think my biggest lesson was that I wanted to help people.
Kristie says that writing was one of the most important things she ever learned, and the more time that I had with people and had them see that I love writing and that I’m not afraid to write about it, it was really important to her.
I mean, she didn’t know anyone who was in the writing business, and so she was really inspired by her teachers.
I wish I had more people in that business because that’s what I want to do.
Kristes parents divorced when she left home and she moved back in with her mom.
