Since the election our LGBTQ community has been going through the 5 stages of grieving. Over the last few months most of our LGBTQ organizations have been working hard to raise funds to take on whatever Trump’s administration might dish out in an attempt to reverse the progress we have made towards obtaining full equality in this country. Now as we get back to work after celebrating the holidays we should be seeking out new leaders with new ideas about how to maintain the equality we have achieved during the Obama Administration & where we go from here. This is not a time to become fearful but a time of great opportunity for our community. Do not buy into people within our community who are basing their agenda on fear. There are so many people in this country who believe that financing organizations that are selling the fear factor will succeed in advancing LGBTQ equality. You cannot fear your enemies. You can be aware that they are a challenge for your success but throwing money at people without a plan will accomplish nothing. It probably won’t even maintain the progress that we have accomplished so far. Take these few weeks before the inauguration & think what personal goals you would like to achieve this year. Start dreaming again of a better life for your loved ones & your community & strive to become fearless.
