I am a gay man, living in a country that is divided drastically by beliefs; beliefs that my "kind" are either entitled to or undeserving of the basic rights of the rest of the population. I fear that under the current administration, all of the hard work that many before me put in, to make our lives better, will be destroyed. I always view life with a glass half full eye. I am confident that this country will overcome the bigotry and hate our administration is preaching. I dream of the day that our society can live harmoniously with inclusion and acceptance rather than misunderstanding, mockery, and hate. I will continue to live in my truth, no matter who disapproves. I will always express myself to my fullest potential of ME. I will always love ME. I will never allow anyone to change ME!
