In Aingeljã (English version below):
Si, si, ou paralelisme eh total!!! J'heh eixat doul'armaggo douz voltas ne ma
vita: premjera cõ gei, seconda cõ "conlanger". E jo deu djure qwe interqwe na
premjera volta a rjazõ da genta esé "Oh, eh verità? Qwe surpreza!", na
seconda volta jo sentabe-mi reixalament loc e cõsegé aceuas strannas miratas
qwe tu djues. Alt embraix ne asdouz voltas jo senté-mi lluwerat, completament
feleix de discoprâre qwe jo nõ swi sol. Jo compare a marwallosa sensacjõ de
mal'eixita doul'armaggo cõ gei com ou moment qwe jo discopré da llista de
post de conlang...
Yes, yes, the parallelism is total!!! I've come out twice in my life: first as a
gay, second as a conlanger. And I must say that while in the first one the
reaction of the people was "Oh, really? What a surprise!", in the second one I
was feeling really mad and I got those funny looks you say. However in both
times I felt released, completely happy to find out that I'm not alone. I
compare the wonderful sensation of my gay coming out with the moment that I
discovered this conlang mail list...
