Tennessee continues to set our LGBTQ+ children, teens, young adults and older adults up to be violated by ignorance, as exemplified by the very type of behavior that our nation witnessed yesterday. Our LGBTQ+ children and teens are being persecuted by Tennessee's leaders, laws, and other oppressive systems. The biproduct of such hate is the entitlement to insert one's malicious, selfish, and venemous beliefs upon innocent people who are contributing members of society. This is what we as a nation witnessed yesterday: a man who felt entitled to violate happy teens engaged in what is their right - to live, celebrate, love, and exist. This entitled man's behaviors are absolutely wrong and will never be excusable. His behavior not only directly harms our LGBTQ+ community, it's also an assault against our family members, our allies, and our community.
I am thankful for Dalton and Jacob's bravery for speaking up, standing together and making change happen. I am thankful for the actions performed by VisuWell, who stand by their values of "respect, kindness, and compassion, especially for those from traditionally marginalized communities, and we maintain a zero-tolerance policy for intolerance of any kind." I am thankful for each brave person who uses their voice to render those with hate, into silence.
We all must
Vote. Speak up. Stand together. Make change happen.
