Well, mate. You've got half the site exploding in heartfelt congratulations and piss-poor puns (why do the two always go hand-in-hand?) There's little left that I can do except to add my own voice. Way to go.
I liked your write-up, it's memorable in a gentle and humble way, which to me, reinforces the image of how right this must've felt for you. I personally haven't followed you on the site, simply because I've never taken the time to notice, so it won't mean much when I say that your sexuality doesn't change the way I view you in any fashion, but nor do I imagine that's the case for the others here.
There's a fair chance that you're going to run into people with a different opinion on the matter, especially considering where you live. (Between the avatar and the waving flag in your profile, I've made the logical leap to that you're American. Deductive reasoning like whoa, son.) That might range from uncomfortable to distressing, and while I'm sure I don't need to tell you this, you ought never to hide who you are, even if it's impractical. You seem to have folks who like you for your opinions and personality from what I gather, so try to be proud of what you are, as it's essential to the make-up of who you are.
Under no circumstances should you be bifacial. And there's your damn title.
