“[We] won’t be quiet so you can be comfortable.”

LGBTQIA2S+ people exist and always have throughout time. We refuse to be silent. The voices of all identities and orientations in our diverse community deserve to be amplified and heard. We will not be invisible or erased. Our contributions to society should be known. Our stories, experiences, and culture deserve to be and celebrated. We refuse to live in fear or falsehood. We will not go back into the closet. We will live loudly and proudly as our authentic selves. We are equally worthy and valid people, deserving of dignity, respect, kindness and love. We are entitled to equal rights, equitable treatment, and a safe, prosperous, joyful existence. We will not stop fighting for that better world.
