On Adele and Having It All

 

My apartment is kind ofnice. I bought these matching Gordon Ramsey dishes. I re-covered my great aunt’s sofa with this really nice gray fabric so it looks like you could’ve bought it at Urban Outfitters, instead of inheriting it from her when she moved into a nursing home. But I didn’t buy it at Urban Outfitters because I’m a responsible consumer. In fact, responsible is really my definitive adjective. I have a dog that I feed and keep vaccinated. I take her on walks, and if I can’t take her on walks I pay for doggie day care. I have a goddamn 401k. My parents are proud of me.

What The LGBTQ Community Doesn’t Need From Straight Allies

In the aftermath of the devastating hate crime recently committed in Orlando, it is more important than ever that straight allies to the LGBTQ community offer their support. It is also increasingly clear to me that many, perhaps even most, straight allies are in need of some guidance on how to provide support in a respectful and effective way.

So. What do we NOT need from you right now? What do we need you to stop doing? This isn’t going to be particularly pleasant for either of us, so let’s rip this band-aid off, shall we?

My Mom Hasn’t Stopped Crying

My mom hasn’t stopped crying since Sunday.
She is the mom to three kids, and a mom at heart to many more.
One of her three kids is lgbtq,
one of her kids is always in danger, simply for existing, for walking out the door.

My mom hasn’t stopped crying since Sunday.
I honestly don’t blame her.
Some things are so sad that all the tears in the world can’t save them.
Some things are so bad that all the love in the world can’t dissuade them.

My mom hasn’t stopped crying since Sunday.
She’s been holding all their faces in her heart.
She sees their faces every day in her kids.
All their deaths are tearing her apart.

My mom hasn’t stopped crying since Sunday.
She was thinking how far we had come.
How far she herself has come.
And now instead of hope, all she feels is numb.

My mom hasn’t stopped crying since Sunday,
and I hope the world weeps with her.
That we hold each other and move forward, stronger, louder, all together.

I haven’t stopped crying since Sunday.
