Trinity Rainey and Sierra Herron have been dating for just over eight months and live in a Mid-Missouri town of 5000, and are openly gay. The town, which has a rather large population of lesbians, is majorly accepting of their open, same-sex relationship. Trinity claims there are somewhere around sixteen to twenty students in town that identify as lesbian or bisexual.
Trinity describes herself as ‘the lesbian’ of her school. She strives to set the tone of how same-sex relationships are handled socially and bridges gaps between social groups. She studies hard, plays varsity basketball and is usually working several jobs. Trinity plans to become a journalist after studying at the University of Missouri.
Sierra, though not as outgoing as Trinity, is comfortable around her. Sierra hopes to become a radiologist one day, and is currently a certified nurse at a local hospital. She recently moved in with Trinity after leaving home after some family issues arose. She has a limited relationship with her father, so Trinity and Sierra thought it was best to live together. The two live with Trinity’s father and share a room.
The two girls are very much opposites. Trinity is a tomboy, very disorganized, a bit scatterbrained, and has a very forward, confident personality. Sierra is more reserved, organized and a bit pickier with her appearance. The two bicker constantly, but that doesn’t change their feelings towards one another.
Though same-sex marriage isn’t recognized in Missouri, the two girls have recently proposed to one another and will celebrate this coming summer. Though they argue, and are very much still young teens, the two take their relationship, sexuality and life goals seriously.
