Micki says she came out to her husband, and although they tried to make their marriage work, Micki says she asked for a divorce. "[Being gay] is about who you are in the depth of your being," she says. "It's not something you can erase or get rid of or change."

Micki says the decision to change the course of her life was excruciatingly painful for her entire family. Still, she says she had to do it. "I did some things that have really hurt my children that I regret, but I was in the dark," she says. "When you step into your truth and you say, 'This is who I really am,' freedom comes."
