I am sick and tired today. Literally. And even though there has been so much going on lately that has been on my mind I just don’t have the will to blog about the rampant homophobia and despair we’ve witnessed during the first month of the school this year.
And aside from trauma exhaustion, I am also feeling hopeful about the responses we’ve been witnessing thus far. And I am wanting to feed that hope right now and watch it grow. Based on the heart-felt responses of individuals all over the country who have quite honestly had just about enough, it feels like maybe things are going to perhaps get a little bit better.
I am so thankful for the many people who have been coming out and taking a stand against all this hate and harm.
Love + Action = Hope
And I want to remind anyone reading this if your heart is heavy or if you know someone in despair you can always reach out.

And – – yes homophobia broke me in my youth too.
And I rebuilt myself with the help of friends and family.
And it is soooo much better than I ever could have imagined.
