In honor of my late wife Suzy / Safe_Bet, I’ve begun collecting posts in support of LGBTQI equality. We in the community have a huge number of very talented heterosexual Allies (the A in LGBTQIA). Here are their stories, posts and opinions.
If you are a member of the LGBTQIA community I hope you will find these posts supportive, reassuring and motivational. If you are a member of the heterosexual community, and are not yet an Ally, I hope these post give you pause and help you decide to support our cause.
Once a month or so, I get to select a post to be republished at Our Big Gayborhood, full of talented, thoughtful, and creative writers who speak about LGBTQIA life. Do you want to be the ones who gets heard? (Sure you do!). If so, you can find the writing guideline here .
"Our Big Gayborhood ~ Where The Queers Write ~ provides a fresh slice of LGBTQIA life in the Internet-wilderness by bringing you a diverse powerhouse of smart & sassy queer and ally writers who each share their own particular experiences with an audience as varied as the writing team itself. It’s not a political site, though we talk about politics. It’s not an entertainment news site, though we interview some of the top names in queer culture. It’s not a personal blog, though each writer spins their own personal web of words on issues and events from coming out to relationships to our history to equality and justice. Our Big Gayborhood presents a dynamic, poignant and snarky outlook on queer life you won't find anywhere else. The site is co-edited by Lori Hahn and Margo Moon."
