You know I wasn't sure how this was going to play out. I was hoping for 'just a real story'. Personally I didn't want abuse or any external reasons that would 'help explain'. I personally believe that how you feel inside is how you feel inside. And with this story that's what I got. Gil is trans. No question. He has issues that would be natural to him and dealing with other peoples phobias. Steve is a knight in shining dented armor. For my first trans story I was delighted. It was too short and I would love to hear more about Gil and Steve and how their lives play out.
As a side note, being raised around the Indy 500 I enjoyed the car talk. I have been to Leguna Seca. That part for me was fun. That one hair pin turn right then left, I know where that is!!!
