Persion

If the other boys saw me coming they would shout out Battyboy, Fish, Faggot or Galboy

Dear friends

My name is Persion Unapologetic and this is my story part one of a three part story

Growing up in Jamaica I always new that I was different from other boys and this feel didn't change much when I got to high school most days I couldn't walk around on the compound without being disseminated against verbally and sometimes physically if the other boys saw me coming they would shout out Battyboy, Fish, Faggot or Galboy which are all common discriminator terms used to describe Homosexuals or members of the LGBT community in Jamaica in by the time I got to the tenth grade (10grade) I was the only gay that was out and open everyone knew and if someone came up to me and asked me I would tell them the truth at one point there where places on the compound that I couldn't go like the male bathroom or even the school cafeteria even some of my teachers won't comfortable with me in there classes but some days were better than most and I think what kept me going the hole time was the fact that I knew high school didn't last for every and that one day I would be out of there and standing on my own two feet the funny think was later on in life I realized that I was actually Transgender....
