Who here has watched Gaycation? 🏳️🌈 🙋♀️ It’s a remarkable documentary series starring @ellenpage and @ianjamesdaniel about LGBTQ culture (and anti-LGBTQ culture) around the world. It’s heart wrenching, beautiful, terrifying, and so important. Just as it’s good for the two of us to know the queer people who came before us in American history, it’s also necessary to see and understand how the fight for equality has progressed (and been hindered) around the world. It’s brutally honest, but has some of the very sweetest moments, too. Also, it was produced in 2016 - and there are two episodes about America during that crucial election year. 11/10 would absolute recommend. It’s on Hulu!
This is me. This is me after a long day at work. Bath bomb, facial mask, and all. This is me crying hysterically in the bath. This is me, mentally having a really rough couple of weeks. This is just part of my story. On the 27th of January it will be a month since I've had any communication with my mother. What it ultimatlely comes down to is she doesn't choose to accept me for being with a woman. For marrying a woman. There has been many fights, uncalled for words, and more pain than I think I know how to handle. The biggest reason is because I NEED to do what is best for me and my wife. It has been over a month since I have started therapy. It's not easy or simple. It is very complicated and is challenging me to my core. Dealing with my childhood, old trauma, never being good enough, and again pain I've experienced. My depression and anxiety is at an all time high. But every day I decide that life is better than death. The feelings of not being able to handle something, or that I just want to give up are there. That hasn't chnaged. But I make today better. Anyone that has read this entire post, kudos to you. But you, yes you, MAKE TODAY BETTER. YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL. YOUR LIFE MATTERS. IT'S OKAY NOT TO BE OKAY. IT DOES GET BETTER. YOU ARE ENOUGH. LOVE YOURSELF ALWAYS!!! ❤

Had a crazy day at work today, and my angel texted me about wanting to go on a breakfast for dinner date soon. It was what we both needed. So, when we got home, that’s exactly what we did. 🥞💙

being strong doesn't mean you'll never get hurt. it means that even when you do get hurt, you'll never let it defeat you. ❄
