Thanks for this. I often get asked by my non gay friends and family about how come I am always talking about homophobia, like it is everywhere. What they fail to see and hear is that, even if we don’t want too, we hear horrible things on almost a daily basis. It is in the papers, television, in the street and in the churches. THe fact that we have to think about this while walking down the street, ( should I not act so gay..) is telling enough, and can do a lot to our self esteem.
Hey Matthew! I love your blog and video and would love to keep current with future posts. Is there anywhere I can subscribe to your blog or find out about upcoming videos?
Thanks so much for creating such a safe space for reflection and doing what you can to help us all live more fulfilling lives. There is such a need for this in our community and I’m glad you are stepping into that role.
Congrats … and thank you!
(And thanks to Towleroad.com for posting this video and making me aware of you, Matthew!)
