My college does this event every year during October, for coming out month called “Closet in the Quad”. So we get a white closet and put it in the middle of campus for people to sign with inspirational and motivational images, sayings and stories. This is a really great event to bring the community together, celebrate diversity and really just bring our LGBTQA+ community and allies together.So I am one of the people who hands out the markers for people to sign up, so I spent many hours thinking about what I wanted to write. I thought about no judgement zone and love is love but none of those seemed to fit.So here is a picture of me finally deciding what I wanted to write on the closet. I identify as Pan~ (pansexual). I am semi-open to members on my campus but never really came out to all my friends and family. But today was different.What I wrote on that wall was this: “I am Pansexual. For me that means that I love who I love based on who they are. Their gender, their gender identity, their gender expression, that does not play a factor that I will fall in love with them or not. This community has given me the strength to come out to myself. But I am ready to be visible. I am ready to let others know who I am. All of me. I know what it’s like to be in the closet and there is nothing wrong with that. Stay in here as long as you need to. But when you come out, just know that you have so many people to support you. To love you. To accept you. Take your time; we’ll still be here when you’re ready.”That little jump of faith led me to posting this picture on facebook and coming out to all my family and friends. Not just my campus. Not just people who work in our campus Gender and Sexuality Resource Center. Everyone.I no long want to be considered “straight passing”. I want to be a rainbow. I want my sexuality to be one with my open identity. My parents might not accept this. Some of my friends might not either. Time will tell. Butfor everyone out there who is in the LGBTQA+ community, when you’re ready to let your colors shine through… I hope you feel the same shaky feeling, teary eyed response of relief that I felt. And if you need someone: This pansexual is rooting for you. Message me if you need anything.Happy Coming Out Month!
Kindsness always overcomes antagonism… Instead ofconfronting our children we need to remember to communicate with them, understanding the challenges they face and empathising
Communication is the fundemental building block of a good relationship and after all what more could we want for our children. Establishing a framework where they feel empowered and understand the boubdaries of their acrions drives their ability to make the right choices in life
Ohh how badly I needed to read this. I’ve been struggling with kindness lately
