Hey Guys! I've reposted one of my first video blogs for abovethelife.com for you to view. Some of you may have already seen this video, but I felt a need to repost it after the recent homophobic attacks on our community. In this video I talk about the importance of living life authentically.
I attended a wonderful discussion on the effects of homophobia last night and I've sat in front of my computer for the past 45 minutes attempting to convey my experience through words with no luck.
I do have quite a lot to say on the subject and I'm sure I will by this time next week. I will be speaking with John Amaechi in a few days and posting a new video blog dealing with this issue.
I want to share with you a few quotes that really hit home for me during the panel discussion, hopefully they will mean something to you as well.
"Don't allow people to steal your light, because your light will illuminate their darkness"- Anonymous
"I have come to believe over and over again that what is most important to me must be spoken, made verbal and shared, even at the risk of having it bruised or misunderstood". -Audre Lorde
"Your silence will not protect you". - Audre Lorde
