So I was going to post about Glee like I normally do but then I watched this video.
I’m now in tears. His story is heart wrenching, his whole life has been torn from him and he can do NOTHING about it. The man he loved died but he wasn’t allowed to bury him. The family that had threatened him with a gun and physically attacked him after he had the courage to tell them he was gay; the mother that told him he should of said something sooner so that he could get TREATMENT, were the ones that by law have the right to what happens to his body and all his worldly possessions.
The man that loved him; that shared his business, his house and his life with him had no rights. He wasn’t even allowed information on how he died.
How is this right? How is this fair?
A family isn’t determined by blood. A family is made with love, with respect and with kindness. How can people call themselves human when they choose to remove the basics of humanity???
‘Freedom of speech’ is used by bigots and neanderthals to justify their prejudice, yet the government does nothing to stop them. God hates sin but loves sinners?? Well he has must surely be loving the folk in North Carolina right about now.
The world is far from perfect, but each single person CAN make a difference. If you’re straight think on this…..on average one in ten people are gay. You most likely know more than ten people, are any of them gay? If the answer is no then they’re probably closeted. The reason they’re closeted is because they don’t know how you will react. If you truly care for these people you don’t care if they are straight or gay, only that they are happy. If you do then you are not really their friend.
Stand up for equality, help erase discrimination from history and make it know that you don’t care if they’re gay, lesbian, bi or straight……. because love is love.
