BE PROUD OF YOURSELF

Hey.

I’m sorry for going away.

I devoted a month just to being gay,

getting it out—thanks, Grindr—every day.

Now, I’m back and finally proud of myself today.


You should be proud of yourself, too! You are you! You are the only you in a species which has been around for over 100,000 years on a little planet which revolves around a little star in a galaxy of 200 billion stars in a continuously expanding universe of trillions of galaxies. [Source: I just took this: courses.harvard.edu/detail/fall2017/astron300.]

And yet, in that entire universe, there is only one YOU. So be proud of whomever you are! Don’t let others trick you into thinking you are weird or crazy or creepy or gross or unnatural because of natural things you cannot control (nor should you), LGBTQ+ or not! Don’t let ANYBODY tease you, trap you, bully you, destroy your mental health, or put you on the literal brink of suicide. I know those things well; I’m here for you—regardless of your struggle or your identity. I’m here for humanity.


BE PROUD OF YOURSELF, DARLING—EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU WHO LAYS EYES ON THESE WORDS. YOU DESERVE IT.
