Because it's awesome.
Queer Stereotypes Redefined
Because visibility is key.
Because after I dyed my hair purple and got tattoos, people started rolling their eyes every time I spoke. Because I grew up not knowing girls could be gay. Because LGBT youth are 4 times more likely to contemplate suicide or self-harm.
I have never had negative labels. I created and publicly identified by my own words and actions my whole life. Labels describe me; my personality, my orientation, my gender identity, how I see the world, but I never let them define me.
The absence of evil is not good, it is apathy. Good must be seen and practiced.
