A #WhenICameOut Thread.

I am deserving of life
and deserving of love.
I am normal, perfectly normal.
I am unique, not a freak.
I bring goodness into the world
by being true to who I am.
It is beautiful to love,
And the love I feel is beautiful.

Another #WhenICameOut thread for #NationalComingOutDay

"When I came out the first time, I was a young, bisexual of man of 19, surrounded by a community that was thriving and vibrant. The historic Hotel Washington had not yet burned down, and I was saying 'queer' not 'bi'.

"I would sneak into the bars of the Hotel Washington, from the scandalous Rod's to the upbeat New Bar. It was then that I first felt the joy of that community, but also first saw the schisms too. Yet we all wept when the Hotel burned down.


"I still remember the first time I watched Prince on MTV; I was wide-eyed and eight, and when he came out of the bathtub I knew, I just knew that 'I shouldn't be feeling like this!' Internalized homophobia came to me even before I knew what desiring a man meant.

When will media outlets like @NPR stop being lazy & start doing their job?!

The #EqualityAct is a HUGE departure from the gains achieved in the SCOTUS Bostock ruling & there are meaningful objections to the Act that aren't religious!

.@NPR's #EqualityAct reporting today was a failure:

"This act would explicitly enshrine those nondiscrimination protections into law for sexual orientation and gender identity, rather [...] 'sex.' However, the Equality Act would also substantially expand those protections." /2
This glosses over an important point:

The #EqualityAct does NOT follow the Bostock ruling which enshrined protections on the basis of sex. Instead of sex, the Act is based on gender identity.

This causes a cascade of damages that affect LGB people as well as women and girls /3
