June was a big month for pride in New York City. It culminated with the big pride Parade on the 24th. Now with the festivities over, the real work goes on.
Victories have been won, losses have also happened. The plight of homeless LGBTQ youth has been brought to the forefront. In my mind, this needs to be a top priority. Since my coming out to my church family I have been inquiring about where I need to get busy.
This coming out has been a transformation of sorts. Visibility puts a face on the needs and desire of transgender people. I never thought that I would come this way but I need to be a force for change. It can be big or small. Just helping out in any way will reap benefits later on.
