“The thing is, my suffering was real.
And the suffering of the world was real, too.
Those kids I made reports on, and the stories of discrimination and hate I heard while working in LGBTQ advocacy.
I didn’t and don’t have an answer for it.
Just like the writer of Lamentations, I was stuck in my grief, and the grief was warranted, and the answers weren’t and aren’t clear.”
