I remember when I first found out a friend of mine was gay. I thought nothing of it at all. He was my friend and I didn’t care who he loved as long as he was happy . When I found out homophobia existed I was confused. How could anyone hate anyone else for something they are? I may have never truly been in love, but am happy for all who have it. Happy Coming Out day to my LGBTQ+ friends and those who are still fighting to have the strength, you are beautiful no matter what and I hope you can find that peace.
