Hi, I’m Andrea Hewitt, a late life lesbian who came out in her mid-forties. This is the blog that I wish I had found when I was coming out a few years ago. There’s almost nothing out there about women coming out later in life, so I decided to write it myself and help others in the process. Hey, we’re here, we’re queer, and we’re fabulous & finally OUT!
I’m a mom of two who currently lives in Nashville, TN with my partner, Rachel. I am committed to helping other gay women navigate the path to becoming their authentic selves–the harrowing parts, the joyous parts, and everything in between!
Enjoy exploring posts on the right-hand side. Click on the topics to find resources and my experiences on every aspect of coming out later in life.
If you don’t see a topic that I’ve covered or you have a question you can’t find an answer to here, please send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or leave me a comment below. I love hearing from readers!
I run a lively Facebook support group of almost 900 women that you can request to be added to. Send me an email (latelifelesbian (at) gmail (dot) com) with a little bit about yourself and why you want to join the group. Also, let me know what email address you use for your Facebook account (if it’s different from the one you use to email me). I typically respond in a week or less, so your patience is appreciated!
I look forward to helping you on your journey to authenticity!
