Every donation is doubled for
OutRight Action International
This past weekend I spoke at a few events about how when I came out 20+ years ago, first to myself and then to others, becoming part of an organization was a life saver for me. That is where I met other LGBT people, where I figured out myself and what I wanted to do with my life. Feeling connected to other people was so important. I think a lot about that in my activism, how so much of what we do is about ensuring that the world gets a little better, so that it will be easier for coming generations. I feel a lot of gratitude towards those who fought for our rights many decades ago. Who at great personal risk decided that they were not going to stay silent and closeted but that they were going to deman human rights for themselves. I feel gratitude towards them and I pay back by doing the work I do.
Every LGBTIQ person - regardless of where they - we - live should be able to live free, without fear of persecution, discrimination, punishment or death. That is what we all deserve and what our governments should guarantee.
Every donation is doubled thanks to two generous OutRight donors.
