Monday Mayhem on a Tuesday – Putting the “B” back in LGBTQ

Sexuality is not a choice. It is the way we are born. I am a bisexual woman who is married to a man who at one point identified as a lesbian and now mostly identifies as queer.

Boy that was a mouthful.

Yep…I put the “B” back in LGBT and I can’t believe that I am still having this conversation in 2018.

Being LGBTQ is not a mental illness. Being LGBTQ is not a choice.

We are beloved creatures who make up the great fabric of humanity. We are meant to BE – LOVED. When we talk about members of the LGBT community we must think & speak & act out of a spirit of love.

I know this can be confusing. I know this can be complicated for some folks. So let me be really clear:

Othering us won’t make us go away. Policies that aim to render us invisible will not stop us. We are worthy of love. I am worthy of love.

Be grace. Raise some hell. Dr. Melissa Bird
