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.
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!
Thankyou so much for taking the time to understand!!! It’s so necessary for upcoming gay youth in America to have a place where they feel comfortable and can be around people like them! I wish I could just wish this idea into existence already!
