I walked to the Memorial corner of Castro and 18th Streets (where people create memorials to loved ones). The corner and then some filled with memorials to the 49 who were murdered in Orlando. I thought about choices and toughness in the LGBTQ world. Who would choose to be denigrated, discriminated against, hated, brutalized, murdered? In the face of hatred, the choice is to Love, to Dance, to Be. Lots of tough customers in this community! More Love, more Pride!
You can stand me up at the gates of hell, but I won’t back down.
This is where my son and his husband live. It’s where I live. More Love, more Pride!
