“What now?” some demanded of us when marriage equality was legalized in the US, not understanding it was the only beginning. It’s a question raised, too, when we’re faced with a variety of discrimination. There’s solace in the vehicles of the people who love you, though. To know you’re loved and accepted while your queer friends hear you out and support you is kindness, validation, and love that I hope all members of the queer community can find.
