In Their Words:
We are not alone.
We are not what we have lost.
We are more than the sum of our scars.
We are the dust of the stars, the bones of the Earth, the breath of the void, the expanse of our imaginations, the arc of art, the love in our hearts.
We lift each other up.
We are the “Beloved Community” every time we choose to be. Our Circle is battered and bloody but still, whole. None above, none below — our one human family — equal under the listening sky.
I believe what Alice Walker wrote:
“We are the ones we have been waiting for.”
Every child deserves to be loved and protected. Our families with LGBTQIA+ parents are just as precious.
No one should be forced into the sacred role of parenthood against their will.
Human Rights are worth fighting for.
We’ve come a long way but we must go farther still.
I am grateful to my chosen family, Brandi, for singing “You’re Not Alone” with me, for inspiring me everyday, for elevating everything, for leading the way.
We will not be turned back.
Love & Revolution
