Hello! I’m Sunshine. Discovering the Rainbow has been a wild ride! Start here to read about my gay husband story.
This blog is about my gay husband, Rainbow, and my life both before and after learning my husband is gay.
My story begins as a Disney fairytale and ends up more like an episode of Punk’d – only without someone appearing and saying “You’ve been punked”.
Learning I had a gay husband for 13 years is far from easy. The realization of a spouse discovering their true sexuality is downright ugly at times.
I used to make apologies for things said or done while discovering the rainbow – I no longer do. Life is too short for that bullshit nonsense. I am surviving. I refuse to apologize for that.
The following shenanigans outline how I learned my husband is gay. The process I went through, the process he went through, and how we are moving forward. This page lists all shenanigans of the sexuality revelations and divorce timeline.
You may find it helpful to know the cast of characters before you begin reading. I have also compiled a detailed timeline of events learning my husband is gay. (Sexual revelations don’t happen overnight!)

Some of the shenanigans about my gay husband were written about before the decision to divorce. Those shenanigans were written by a very different Sunshine than the one currently typing. I left these posts as they were originally written and edited. They demonstrate the complete shift in thinking and emotion I have made discovering the rainbow.
As the journey continues, I will continue to write more shenanigans to fill in details of both the past and present chaos.
