Teen’s Gut-Wrenching Letter About Being Gay in Trump’s America

It is insane to think that there are millions of people in this country who do not care that a child feels terrified to live in this country. What kind of monster is so heartless that they do not care how a child feels about life and living somewhere like what this country will become? We need to nurture our children. Help them feel safe. Not brainwash them with hate.

He adds: “Even if some people in town are homophobic, for as long as I’ve known I’m gay (five years) I’ve known it’s really fine to be gay from TV and from our government, starting with the President. Of course I’ve heard stories of the old days when people had to be in the closet and faced all kinds of discrimination. I’m grateful to have been growing up in a time when we’ve gotten equal rights.”
