Being Gay and the Cacophony of Hate
One thing about being gay that no straight person can understand, is how wherever you go you can't get away from the drumbeat of oppression.
Like try to ignore what happened to my brave brothers and sisters in Moscow today.
When it makes me so angry.
Or pretend that I didn't hear about how the Republicans are planning to try to turn gay marriage into a more effective weapon.
Republicans can reach a broader base by recasting gay marriage as an issue that could dent pocketbooks as small businesses spend more on health care and other benefits, GOP Chairman Michael Steele said Saturday.
When I did and it makes me want to VOMIT.
Or how I can't block out the hideous sight of Christianist bigots using innocent children against us....
It all adds up to a cacophony of hate that you can't escape.
No matter where you go.
Which is what I think is what vimeo artist Matthew Brown is trying to convey in this video.
Does he succeed? I'm not sure.
But I'm sure proud of my brothers and sisters, for living, loving, and fighting FOREVER.
In a world as bigoted as this one....
