I am thankful for the many pastors that participated in the Equality March and Pride rallies around the nation. For many years, I didn’t think you could be religious and pro LGBTQ+ rights. I am so glad I was wrong! I am also thankful for the many allies, and especially for the LGBTQ+ community.
As a bisexual, I spent a significant time of my life feeling like I didn’t belong. I’m too gay to be straight and too straight to be gay. Bi-erasure is a thing and it is the reason I was closeted for so long. FYI, the “B” in LGBTQ+ stands for BISEXUAL. We exist.
It wasn’t until after the Pulse shooting, 1 year ago, that I was able to come to terms with who I am and able to express it not just to others, but to myself.
Today, tomorrow, and every day…we celebrate, we love, we remember, we mourn, we march, we stand up, we take action, we rally and we resist.
Peace and Love!
