Religion that fails to adapt to cultural shifts will soon meet it’s irrelevance. Cultural prejudice does nothing but keep people from the divine. Love should rule the day and love is always love.
To all the LGBTQIA folks out there who are finding this time of year to be difficult because of family and friend issues I hope you find company and comfort in those who choose to love you no matter what. You matter and know I care. Grace and peace.
Transgender Day of Remembrance, also known as the International Transgender Day of Remembrance, has been observed annually on November 20 as a day to memorialize those who have been murdered as a result of transphobia.
To those living their truth you have my support and admiration. May you be safe and secure. Remember those who lost their lives because of the violence and ignorance in this world.
As a person of faith I believe God made us all in His image and to bully someone for being who God made them to be is wrong. LGBTQ folks have a right to happiness and the blessings of their creator. Some of my best friends are people of faith who happen to be a member of the LGBTQ community. I stand with them for being awesome people. Love is Love.
To all those who have come out and for those who are seeking the courage to do so may you find strength and love as you live your truth. Grace and peace to you the LGBTQ community. May you be able to live your lives freely in the pursuit of happiness and equality.
Discrimination is wrong. It is something that speaks to the worst in people and organizations. When it comes to making a living being LGBTQ folks should not be afraid of losing their rights to life, liberty and happiness. We are in the 21st century and the fact that discrimination is a problem for so many is quite sad. I hope for the very best today as the US Supreme Court decides some issues regarding LGBTQ discrimination. It’s time freedom is open for all.
In advocacy I think training and mentoring people who are on your side is important. I’m a believer that if you are to build a team you need to advance your cause you have to be sure to welcome them and be forgiving if mistakes are made.
For example. It seems to me that any group who needs support from people who are on the outside their community should welcome it even if it’s not as perfect as they would want it to be. Now if you want anything done you can do it yourself or get helpers who can make a difference and if you show them the way then everyone can be on the same page.
Don’t assume someone will do things you have always done them. Change happens and if anyone is to stick around the the long haul you have to allow them ownership and the freedom to bring their experience to the table. In short don’t treat willing workers like children.
Taylor Swift goes after twitter haters and those who hate the LGBTQ community. Her song writing is so clever you need to listen to it a couple of times to get what she is singing about. This video is using a colorful palate to get its point across.
