“Where after all, do universal human rights begin? In small places, close to home – so close and so small they cannot be seen on any map of the world. Test they are the world of the individual person; the neighborhood he lives in, the school or college he attends; the factory, farm, or office where he works.
Here are the five African American leaders that I am thankful/grateful for because without their service, dedication to uplift others, example and motivation to continue to fight for equality, we would not be where we are today!
I read a post that completely disturbed me…
I am beyond disappointed, hurt, or fury…
Trying to understand how someone could be so simple-minded, belittling, and ignorant, does not come easy to me. The post, “I will not apologize to faggots”
I read a post yesterday evening that completely disturbed me…
Anyone that reads my blog, knows that I a pro-equality… there are so many advocates that only support the concerns that they feel are important. All advocacy is beneficial to a cause, whether its lead in the water, the #blacklivesmatter movement, poor education systems, or poverty…
But, how can you fight for true equality, if you consider some concerns, and yet dismiss others? That is an alternative fact!
Equality for LGBTQIAP+ is a cause that is just as important as any other, and should be fought for by those with privilege; heterosexuals.
Don’t let anyone tell you to stop crying!
Don’t let anyone tell you you are too emotional!
Don’t let anyone tell you that you are weak!
Don’t let anyone tell you, you will fail!
Don’t you dare be afraid!
I found out I was pregnant, one month after I received my Masters Degree…
Just before I was about to transition from student to working woman, I was hit with the reality that I was going to be a working woman who was also a mother.
My boyfriend and I were broke; living with my mother, and about to move into a 1-bedroom apartment, because that was all we could afford.
Why would anyone want to be LGBTQIAP+?
To be bullied in school?
To be exiled from their families?
To lose friendships?
So that they can know what a hate crime is?
To be judged?
