It seems we all have something in common, which is homophobic family members. I can’t imagine what will happen if my parents find out; the thought alone cripples me with fear. Any homophobic experience I have has resulted in more fear and anger. Sometimes this anger would be at myself, for being the way I am, especially when I was younger and shared the widespread intolerance on this subject. Now that I accept and embrace my identity, the anger was redirected to what societies are taught and the kind of hatred people are fed in the name of religion or tradition.
