Sad sad sad days we’re having here.

 50 Things That Make Me Happy

How totally frustrating & exhausting, right?

I saw on Tyler Oakleys Instagram that it’s important for the straight allies to show their support to the LGBTQ community during this time.

I thought I’ve always done that but realized only people that know me know I’m ride or die for the LGBTQ community – I haven’t thrown it out there to everyone via social media.  And if it helps at all, then I’d be glad to do so.  And I suggest other straight people express their support as well, if it can help during this time then why not.

Love is love, I’m disgusted by the actions of this last weekend and have no words. I literally can’t imagine & I feel heavy over this entire situation.  I’m so sorry.  To the LGBTQ community, I love you.  I feel you.  I’m with you.

PS.  You’re telling me the specific gun the Orlando shooter used is necessary to protect your families? Or hunt?   L. O. L.
