This is Where You Belong

This blog is for all the young (and middle-aged, and older) men and women
I see who are too scared to approach me in the streets to ask for support
or advice....who are living invisibly amongst the rest.

For the people who can't even fathom mentioning the truth of their bodies
and souls aloud for fear that someone will hear, or that it will make it real.

It's for all the people who feel cursed because small town living is all they
know and all they ever expect to know in their lifetime.

For all the people ruined by crazed religious fanatics who taught hellfire and
hate instead of self-love and acceptance.

It's for all the people who live in places, like the place I live, where people
seem to prefer dead closet cases over living, loving, whole people.

So, for those of you who may never be banner-wavers or pride-marchers
or even openly gay or bi or lesbian-identified.....for those of you who simply
need to know that you are not alone in the world, that you are okay exactly
as you are, and there is nothing wrong with you that in any way needs to be
changed....this blog is for you.

May you know and accept just one iota of how special and perfect you are,
as you learn to reject the untruths and pain dispensed to you by those who
know so very little.

Peace and love, my brothers and sisters...this is the place we can connect;
you are home.
