Necessities of Life

"It is necessary to constantly remind ourselves that we are not an abomination." --Marlon Riggs

For those of you who snicker, call names, make homophobic comments (and/or stand by while others make them), who minimize the nature of this specific attack on our LGBT sisters and brothers of color with attempts to deflect or deny that this was a hate crime, who don't believe that people like me (black, gay, out, proud) deserve the same rights as you, who misuse religion to spread hatred while saying that you are a Christian...for those of you who deny the children, nieces, nephews, cousins, grandparents, friends, mothers, fathers, and church friends in your own lives whom you KNOW are LGBT family...think about the seeds of destruction that you have sown through your own acts and thoughts, and how that contributes to horrific acts of violence. 

A vigil will be held on the steps of Plainfield City Hall (515 Watchung Avenue) tomorrow (Friday, June 17) at 7:30 pm.
