In a random Google search, TBK’s employer found her real name unknowingly linked to her personal website, and based her immediate termination on the sole instance. The employer has continually declined public comment. Countless blogs and media websites picked up the story, including Inc.com, Business Insider, Glamour, Huffington Post, digg, Jezebel, Fleshbot, and Mental_Floss.
The Beautiful Kind is Kendra Holliday, a 38-year-old bisexual mother living in St. Louis, Mo.
“It was not an easy decision to come out, but one that needed to happen in order to achieve self-actualization,” Holliday said. “As Deepak Chopra says, ‘Spirituality is self-awareness and awareness of other people's needs.’”
Kendra continues “I’m grateful to my friends and family for supporting my decision. There’s no telling what will come of this bold move, but I’m confident coming out will open up many new doors and be an inspiration to others. We all want to be accepted for who we are.”
Kendra writes openly about her current life experiences on her own site, as well as her former days as a sex worker, in her column, The Whore Journals on Sexis.
Today through Oct. 18, Holliday also will be answering questions as part of the EdenFantasys Community Interview.
