Know that I’m proudly queer

Know I didn’t “choose” but what chosen

That I love deeply

I bleed red

I breathe air tainted with hatred and STILL breathe out sweet music

Know that I sup with a Heavenly Father who loves me

Know I cherish my blood-bought melanin

Know I died, but WE live on!

-For my Fallen Brothers and Sisters in Orlando. Know you are loved, and I’m going to find a way to make that love tangible!
