Being queer, to me, means dismantling the generational trauma that has held onto me throughout my upbringing and into adulthood. It means finding my true self and living authentically. It means finding community in others who are changing the status quo, who are loving themselves in the face of adversity.
Queer Culture has always existed. But even into the 21st century, the LGBTQIA+ Community is threatened daily. We are seen as sinners and degenerates. We are seen as threats to normality and hierarchical power.
To be queer is to be rebellious.
In our rebellion, we will be unapologetically:
VOCAL and be heard.
VISIBLE and be truly seen.
VALUED in our VALIDITY.
This blog is a call to recognize how beautiful our differences are, and is a safe place to celebrate our similarities and mourn our losses.
To be queer is also to be the “other.” This blog is an open call to diversity and inclusion. Here we foster an empowering environment and build a community out of authenticity and compassion.
