Welcome to Moonbeams over Atlanta as we kick off the 2016 Hop For Visibility, Awareness & Equality Blog Hop formerly Against Homophobia, Biphobic and Transphobia Blog Hop.
My name is Eloreen Moon and this is my message of #May17IDAHOT awareness for you.
International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia
May 17, 2016
Speaking out against bigotry for being different.
This is the third year I’ve participated in this blog hop and I will continue to do so. I continue to help one person, one blog, one post at a time. We’ve had the transgender issues with the public restrooms floating around social media. We have others post videos, memes, and other types in support. We need to continue to support everyone in the LGTBQ arena because we are all different and we should be celebrating diversity regardless of who you love, what religion, or who you want to be.
That would kind of boring to be just like everyone else.
It makes me smile when my teens talk openly about sex, gender roles, and their confidence in their own identities.
And that inspires me to write something that I haven’t done in awhile. To that, I’ve created this poem.
Teach the young so they may know nothing else.
Help your elders to see change.
Understand someone’s beliefs and identities.
Be yourself as much as you are able.
Fly in the face of the societal norms
Love yourself and love others.
In the end we are all the same.
