Ever since I learned I was queer I’ve had a fear about ever finding a true home in the future. It seems to me so much harder to find love or even fellow queer friends when you’re gay, especially as a teen. I can count the amount of openly gay students at my school on my fingers. I was at the supermarket with my mom thinking about how straight people can find love literally anywhere, even at the supermarket. I wanted something like that for myself and my people. That’s when the lightbulb went off.
I think your push for change is so necessary! Kids need a place to play and be kids!! I think we share that common ground with our ideas as we both wish to create havens for youth to be themselves!! My idea focuses on centers for LGBT youth and also works to fight against aids and trans workplace discrimination! You should check it out, maybe we could work together!
Hey Shyla I totally empathize with this idea because for so much of my childhood I didn’t even know men could be with men and women could be with women. But boy was I in for a surprise ��. It came with a lot of confusion that could’ve been easily avoided has I atleast known that that was even possible! I look forward to collaborating with you because we share a similar goal: visivillity and awareness!
