Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA
"Despite the recent horrific attack on a gay couple in Philadelphia, we have felt safe in our Philadelphia neighborhood. Nevertheless, we have both felt discrimination in different ways."
"Just yesterday while walking to the train, some people yelled out from the platform above asking if I was a boy or a girl, and then dropped a bottle right in front of me. I think people just don't like what they can't distinguish or categorize. It's been that way since I was very young."
"In contrast, I have a very femme presentation and am bisexual, so my experience has been dealing with people not believing that I really am queer."
"By the way, my mom and I were recently interviewed by Everyone Is Gay, which is a book for parents of gay kids. Check it out!"
