My first kiss was with my next-door neighbor—a young boy in my class. It was back when I didn’t know what it meant to be queer, what it meant to be bisexual, what it meant to be trans.

I thought if that small passage was seen out of context, it might be read as beautiful instead of sinful. 

At least, that's what I hoped for.
