“We are lucky to have a city that accepts our community and supports us with equality. I never take it for granted.”
I am so grateful to live in a city that not only accepts me for who I am; but embraces me fully. I think about all the people in our history that have had to endure extreme prejudices and judgement so that I can live an open, loving life in this city and I am eternally thankful to them. I may not know their names or their stories but I do know that for the first time in recent history I can love my soon-to-be wife in public. I can hold her hand and laugh while I touch her shoulder or hug her – and the world around me smiles back. I can run a successful business while also being openly gay. We are lucky to have a city that accepts our community and supports us with equality. I never take it for granted. We are all making the world a better place for living our truths and paving an easier path for LGBT generations to follow and know that they are exactly who they are supposed to be while being supported.
