Stop Shaming The LGBTQ Community

Could you imagine having to hide your true identity?

Stop Shaming The LGBTQ Community

Being gay, bi, lesbian, trans, pan, poly, queer, etc is not a choice

Nobody decided to wake up one day and say “hey I think I like guys.”

Or “hey I think I like girls.”


It wasn't something that was asked for.

Today, many people think people who identify themselves as gay, bi, trans, etc, do so because it’s a “trend”...but here’s what you don’t understand.

It’s not a trend.

Being gay was never accepted until recently.

So no, it is not a trend.

People are finally comfortable enough to identify with their true selves.

Do you know how sad that is?

Could you imagine having to hide your true identity?

Not being able to feel comfortable with who you are because of the world around you?

Being gay is not something that just came out of nowhere recently.

People that are gay, trans, bi, poly, etc were even around in the time of Shakespeare and have always been around.

They will always be around.

People in the LGBTQ community had to hide it because it was not accepted in society.

Now being gay is finally becoming accepted in our society.

And the problem is not the LGBTQ community, the problem is the people who don’t understand.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with a man liking another man.

There is nothing wrong with a woman liking another woman.

There is nothing wrong with someone who identifies with the gender they are not born with.

Just because someone is gay or trans doesn't mean they are any less of a person

I am sick and tired of people misjudging people of the LGBTQ community.

Someone who does not identify with the gender they are born as does not have a mental disorder.

Someone who likes the same sex does not have a mental disorder.

People want to put a label on the community if you're gay, lesbian, trans, bi, trans, poly, etc. That’s not what society is used to, that's not “normal" there must be something wrong with you right?


People in our society like to put the LGBTQ community into a different category calling them different, disabled or whatever they call it.

But being gay is beautiful.

Being trans is beautiful.

Being bi is beautiful

Being lesbian is beautiful

Being poly is beautiful

Being pan is beautiful

Being asexual is beautiful

Every person, no matter what their sexuality, is beautiful.

And just because it was not always accepted into our society does not mean it’s wrong.

God loves us all.

Marching Through March

Some appreciation for the month of March.


I love the entire year. Well, for the most part. I'm not a big fan of Winter, but even then, every month has something that's pretty great. November? Thanksgiving. December? Winter Holidays. January? New Year's. February? Valentine's and Single Awareness Day. May? Existential dread during finals. But for me, March has always been my favorite month of the year, and for good reason.
