There's something about being a minority that makes me want all lgbt peeps to succeed in their/our respective fields. I want us to be in a position of power and influence, not to demean anyone, but so that others won't/can't easily discriminate us.

... if there's anything that struck me then as profoundly true, it's that tolerance is a far cry from acceptance. The Philippines may be progressing in that aspect, but at what rate? :/ There's still a long way before the majority would ever be purged clean of the cringing and name-calling and prejudice.
i haven't experienced this so-called acceptance yet, but the way Anonymous painted it makes me want to stretch my arms, catch a falling star, and kiss a dream. i have been so used with wearing my closet shoes and its matching closet dress because it safely but cautiously allowed me to navigate my way, to secretly co-exist in the straight world. it sure does feel like a lifetime ago when i fit like a T in the straight world. until i discovered that the world is not straight, but round! as round as the curve of a woman's hips that bore the generation before us. as round and firm as a woman's buttocks extending to round and strong limbs. twice as round as a woman's pair of nurturing breasts. as round as a woman's face that is second to nature to cup. as round as a woman's personality that rolls with the times and necessity.
the world is round and there's no turning back.
