Alright, family. We had our fun and parades, but now we have to remember to complete the work of our people. Black trans women are still dying and other LGBTQ+ people are still losing their jobs for being their authentic selves in the workplace.
I knew I was gay ever since I began watching early seasons of the Power Rangers. I had a crush on almost every red and blue ranger cast for the show. During my early childhood, I honestly believed that liking other boys was natural and accepted by society. In retrospect, I noticed that I wasn't exposed to much or any negative media. I didn't learn about events like Columbine until many years later.
