IT DOESN'T MATTER WHO YOU ARE
IT DOESN’T MATTER WHO YOU ARE
March 25th, 1960
Today was my first day at my new school. I thought it would be like at my old school, but it wasn’t. I met wonderful people there and I also have new friends. I think that I like Stella more than the others. She asked me if I wanted to come to her birthday party. She’s so nice!
Although there are some guys who call me bad names like at my old school, I like the new one a lot and I hope that it will be a wonderful day tomorrow.
I’ll write tomorrow,

Today was so awful! The boys in my class bullied me all the time and the girls just laughed. The only one who stood on my side was Stella. She’s really my best friend, but she doesn’t know how much I admire her.

Sorry that I haven’t written for such a long time. Two weeks ago, I cut off my hair and now I also dress like a boy. I think I was born in the wrong body. I have always wanted to be a boy! That’s why I attended so many different schools. In every school, there were guys who bullied me. But in my new school, I finially feel safe although some of the pupils of my class didn’t like me at the beginning.
Yesterday, I met Stella in the park. I told her my feelings for her. She reacted calmly. Stella didn’t say a word. She said that we wouldn’t get a couple. But she asked if we were able to be just friends. We agreed that that would be our secret forever.
