…. I want to make a difference.
I have been single for a month now.
I didn’t post about it because it hurt too much. It’s managable now. The pain isn’t so bad.
What is hurting, I find, is suddenly discovering all over again what homophobia is. What inequality is.
I want to marry a girl. The right girl, when I find her.
In Australia, I won’t be able to do that, unless things change.
I don’t want girls calling me and telling me how they suffer because they’re gay.
I don’t want boys getting the shit beaten out of them because they looked at a boy the way they look at girls.
I don’t want the news to label a family as abusive because they accept their child for who She is.
This world, the way it is, disgusts me. There is so much hate, and not enough love.
Worse than that, there are restraints in love. Laws, rules, boxes and labels.
There is no way you can put a price or a tag on something as beautifully divine as love.
Please, if you feel the same way I do, regardless of your sexuality or gender, DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT.
Blog, take photos, make art, protest, donate. Raise your voice, be loud, be proud, be amazing.
Be in love. Celebrate other people being in love.
Help those who need it, and help yourself.
