I’ve waited my life for this day, to speak aloud and finally say, I am loud and proud and here to stay.
I am woman, mother and lover. I am here for my daughter, sons and mother. I’m here for my friends so delightfully queer, so they may have nothing to fear. I’m here for friends of color, that they will know no difference from other. I’m here for freedom for those to worship as they please, but please don’t tell me what I should believe.
A day of strength, love and peace. Pay it forward and let the hate cease.
