The goal of each of these is to marginalize and minimize LGBTQ people. We will have to stay on our toes, keep being willing to fight for our rights, and be willing to stand up and say no I won’t agree to be second class or lessor.

I had a young gay friend who was assaulted and killed one night for being gay, and even at their trial the killers felt they did nothing wrong. They felt attacking and hurting a gay person was not a bad thing. That he died was not their fault, just proof he was a weak fag. I watched as his same age lover went from a happy carefree person to a shell of a person through the year and half long trial. He never recovered. That is what we have to be aware of now. These thugs have been empowered after years of being pushed into the shadows. Be well, be safe. Hugs
