Dear people that are queer and out

I love people that are out. No matter if your are male, female or trans. Just about most queers have some kind of impact on me. Most queers inspire me just by being queer. It is so nice to see other queers out there. It helps me feel less alone and it makes me feel proud to be a queer myself. I don’t think that there are enough of us who are queer and out about themselves. I think that it is such a shame that some of us don’t even feel ok with who we are and feel like we have to hide who we are and/or be someone that we are not. I don’t think that is right.

I love it when I am at the mall or out somewhere and I can see other queers around. It makes me feel so happy to see that. It doesn’t happen as often as it should but when it does I want to tell them that it is nice to see that other queers are ok with themselves enough to be who they are and how it can help and inspire the younger queers that it is ok to be who they are and that they aren’t the only ones out there. It is OKAY. It can also let people know that we do exist and that there are queer people out there, even though it might not always be easy.
