Courage, Perseverance, Pride
In the wake of the tragedy in Orlando, I am sure LGBTQ people across the country are questioning their security at upcoming Pride events.
Here in Cincinnati, it is no different to be sure as I watch most of the Facebook action.
Fortunately, most of the response seems to be for everyone to move cautiously forward and not let acts of hate take away our lives as we know them. To do so is no worse than getting shoved back into closets we have worked so hard to get out of.
As far as I am concerned, I am going forward with a couple of my planned volunteer activities for Pride.
Plus keep a sharp eye out for anything. I have come too far to go back now.
