Hi Friend, 

My favorite part about being queer is the community. Coming from a team sport, being queer feels like being on another team. Everyone comes together to support each other through the hard times and celebrate each other in our victories. 

The LGBTQ+ community is so diverse, yet we still find a way to find unity, solidarity, and respect for one another, and that inspires me. I think all communities could learn something from the values the queer community exemplifies. And though no community is perfect, I think that it’s pretty cool that to be queer truly means to be you and to be free.

Together, always,
R.K. Russell
