With permission of the author, I re-post a (slightly-edited) little report from elsewhere for your encouragement. He wrote . . .
Just wanted to share a minor personal 'victory' with you all.
When I first came to a freedom2b meeting 6 months ago, I parked in the darkest spot I could find two streets over, put up my hoodie, walked in the shadows and checked over my shoulder before ducking in to the venue.
Tonight when I stopped by, I parked in the closest spot I could find (for convenience) and walked in without giving it a second thought.
It was a little moment of realisation myself, that even though I have a few reasons not to completely 'come out' yet, if someone DID find out (i.e., saw me walk into the venue and start asking questions), it wouldn't really be a big deal. I'd get over it. Compared to 6 months ago when to me that felt like the biggest scariest thing I could ever imagine.
So freedom2b, (and other groups) have played a large role in getting me to this point, and for that I'd just like to say thanks!
