What the heck is going on in my home town?
Every day lately I hear about violence against gay people.
Last week a guy was shot in the face and killed just for being gay.
And a few weeks before that two guys were attacked and beaten just for walking down the street.
Now I hear that last night a guy was assaulted at a bar when he told another guy he was gay.
There are actually 5 reported attacks against the LGBT community in the past month, and that is 5 too many!
I have two Dads, so this concerns me.
New York is supposed to be a safe place where EVERYONE is free to be who ever they want to be!
The media has decided that it’s because of all the talks about Gay Marriage and how people are accepting gay people today.
I just don’t understand it. Why do people care so much about what other people are doing?
What’s the big deal if two men, two women, or a man and a woman love each other and want to be together?
Do these “haters” feel threatened by gay people?
Or maybe it’s a Bible thing? But the Bible says “Love thy neighbor” And I don’t think God was saying just the neighbors who are exactly like you!
Let me say this, if there were no gay people, all of you non gay people would be in some serious trouble, because gays are everywhere!
They are in every profession and are contributing members of society just like you, and they deserve to be safe and secure just like you.
So come on New York, get your shit together and stop all this hatred, it’s just NOT pretty!
