May your day and every day be filled with more opportunities and the freedom to be authentically you and open about every aspect of your life. All in accordance with your need for personal safety and security, of course.
To all my supportive friends and readers:
Support your QUILTBAG friends. As I noted on Facebook, your friends’ gender or sexual orientation may be “no big deal” to you — and that’s great. But bear in mind that they’re still taking a risk in sharing that deeply personal information with you, so the act of sharing is a huge fucking deal to them. Don’t lose sight of that when responding to anyone who comes out to you.
