Hi everyone! January's mini-challenge here at the Challenge That Dare Not Speak Its Name is a simple one. What we'd love for you to do is take a moment to write a paragraph or two on why this challenge and/or this issue is important to you. Once you do, come back and link your post up here.
This challenge and the challenges that face the GLBT community matter to me because members of this community are my friends and family. My belief in equality and inclusion for all people means just that- all people.
This challenge matters to me because I believe it is harder to hate someone after you’ve taken the time to know them. GLBT issues are our issues. Our common human flaw to use difference as a reason to mistreat and exclude is unacceptable, inhumane, just plain wrong.
This challenge matters to me because at the end of the day, we all bleed. Cut someone and it hurts. I want to stop the bleeding.
