I’m sorry you have to navigate such a difficult situation with those who should love you unconditionally. Sending you love and strength to get through the season.

As for the shooting, I’m angry. And while I’m lucky to live in a very lgbtq+ friendly state and neighborhood, I feel misunderstood in my anger. I can feel those around me tiring of it but I don’t think it goes away until real change is made to protect us. And that’s exhausting.

This collage is giving me all the feels. This day, and all the days recently are giving me all the feels. No words. Just showing up here to witness and say β€œI see You. You are perfect in your Youness.” I’m sorry it’s so goddamn hard πŸ•―οΈπŸ’”πŸ•―οΈ

I'm grieving by being angry. and by writing. I feel enormously protective of my queer family, which includes you, and I'm worrying and heartsick on your behalf. πŸ–€

I love us. I am tired. I am sad. I am tired. I am angry. I am tired. I love us. (Over and over again, on repeat)
