Finding Narnia

The title refers to the common joke that someone is “so deep in the closet they’re having adventures in Narnia.” Typically referring to being closeted in terms of sexuality, but also applicable for other socially less well accepted activities, like tabletop gaming.

In my public life (i.e. work and in public) I’m very much a closeted gamer. (I’m also fairly closetted sexually, being a non-practicing bisexual who was in a heterosexual relationship for a decade before I started seriously questioning.)

I have D&D T-shirts, but I seldom wear them when leaving the house and almost never wear my D&D ballcap when going to a place where I’ll be seen. Too much trauma from being teased in junior high I guess. Even though I know the only people who will see and care about said logo will be fellow gamers themselves.
