While growing up my father was a tyrant, and I could do no right. When I told him I am a lesbian, he wouldn't let me talk about my family; or acknowledge my partner and children. My last living grandmother just died, and my father called to see how I was doing. We talked about my childhood, and he realized he was a tyrant, and told me he didn't mean it that way. I am 38 years old, my father is 65 years old, and I know for the first time in my life, that my father truly loves me for who I am.
