Homophobes, just stop…
Homophobes in Edmonton please stop with your comments and glares. I love my boyfriend and I would love to be able to hold his hand while walking down the street, at a booth at the restaurant, at a movie etc. I CAN do this yes. But not without glares and comments from homophobic people in the city.
Honestly I do feel afraid and overall very anxious and uneasy when I hole my boyfriends hand in public. Due to the way we’ve been treated I’ve stopped doing it. Just to enjoy my evening without having a conflict. I know not everyone has an issue with it. But I can guarantee you there are an alarming amount of people who take issue with this.
Imagine as a straight couple you would be fearful to show affection or hold your partners hand in public? For the straight people in society if you witness homophobia or know people who would make comments towards gay people. Please just tell them to stop. Gay is not a choice. I just want to experience the same ‘privileges’ of being out with my partner whom I love in public, just as you do.
I can already imagine the hate this post will receive, and that will show you the hate that we receive in our daily lives….
