If you hide all your life, you will lose yourself.
This is an adorable little gifset, but you know what upsets me? It’s the first gif. The moment they pull away from the kiss the guy on the right shoots a look over his shoulder. I’ve done that. I always do that whenever I kiss a guy in public because I’ve grown up in a world where I’ve had abuse hurled at me and friends who were gay bashed. It’s survival. It’s sad.
My hope for the future is that no one will have to look over their shoulder to check the coast is clear when they want to kiss. Kissing is natural and beautiful, no matter who you’re doing it to.
I’ve never NOT done that.
I’ve never even held my fiance’s hand in public for an extended period of time. I’m too bloody scared.
Same. There’s always the awareness. Public display of affection, however small is never without at the very minimal the thought of fear that someone might see it who will say something horrible, or worse.
This makes me so happy.
