Well written Evan!
We, my husband and I, are feeling very much the same as you decribe in your eloquent post. The latest thing I’m seeing now is the “reclaime Pride” going on which is about people in the LBTQIA community taking a dislike to the fact that companies are embracing and sponsoring Pride events. Why not be happy about the fact that our rights has become accepted to a point where a company like e.g. Volvo Cars or Levi’s are willing to officillay promote Pride on their part. But it seems like you have to be against “the establishment” to be a “real” LBTQIA community member..?
