BRIDE KNOWS BEST.
You have inspired me.
You showed me what strength is.
You demonstrated courage over and over again.
You risked so much for love.
You never compromised your expression
Your rights and freedoms were being compromised.
You stood up for me.
You stood up for the world.
And now the world is better because of you.
We still have a long way to go
I am bi your side.
To our LGBTQ youth. I LOVE YOU. Fully. Completely. I celebrate you. You are beautiful and worthy of love. I hope you let yourself find it and find peace and security in that place. You deserve it. I will fight for you.
I spent far too many years as a confused Mormon. I am no longer confused. I am still a Mormon, but I am one with open eyes and open arms. I give you my word that I will do all I can to create dialogue that leads to change within communities of faith, for that is where change needs to happen most.
I hope you can forgive years of intolerance and injustice to you. Years of judgment. We are a flawed people. And truly, orthodox religion is not a safe place for you, our LGBTQ youth, in its current state. However, I am not one to know what is correct or safe for you in your current state of being. If you don’t feel safe to live your truth due to family or your situation, just know that you are not alone.
There are many people like you that have gone on to be extraordinary beings. Changing the world, in fact. And until you get to that safe place, there are many resources for you find help and love. One of my favorites is the Trevor Project. They are just a phone call away. Waiting to hear you and help you. Please never take your life away from us. We need you. We need your color and unique spirit. The world is a dull place without you.
I love you and TRULY accept you.
Love is love,
