Imagine a day when we transcend to an Affirmative Queer Culture.
It will happen.
Imagine a day when the word Straight only refers to a straight line.
Imagine a day when Coming-Out only means exiting.
Imagine a day when In the Closet only speaks to your storage for clothes.
It will happen. Wait.
Imagine a day when Same-Sex Hate Crime is an antiquated term and forgotten.
Imagine a time when saying I’m Gay is said without fear.
Imagine being Gay is as natural as being a female or male.
Imagine a day when saying I’m a Woman or Man is simply stated because that’s your gender.
It’s coming soon.
Imagine a time when You Hold Your Lover’s Hand regardless of his or her sex.
Imagine a day when the word Civil Union was a past word used and marriage is the only word known for partnerships.
Imagine a time when Heterosexuality is not the presumed default.
Imagine a time when asking Are you married? is asked of anyone.
Imagine asking Will you marry me? to anyone you love.
It will happen. Wait and see.
Imagine a day we don’t have to read about a Gay Fourteen Year-Old who committed suicide.
Imagine a time when youth in high school are not bullied, threatened, and beaten.
Imagine never hearing a parent kicking their teenager out from their home because she came out gay or transgender.
Imagine a time when all news media is supportive of gay rights.
It is already starting to happen.
The anti-gay Defense of Marriage Act has been defeated.
Thirty-six states and sixteen countries have marriage equality.
Gay people serve openly in the military.
Celebrities are openly gay in the media, professional sports, and US Congress.
Transgender serve openly in major political offices in the world.
Conservative media keep a civil tongue as they oppose queer civil rights.
Gay and transgender are coming out in their teens; and coming out openly in Oklahoma, Ohio, Utah.
The Queer community is slowly paving its way into mainstream world.
We will see same-sex fathers and same-sex mothers in the playground.
We will smile at the sight.
We will have no set expectation of who our children will marry.
We will accept our children unconditionally.
We will tell our children they can marry anyone they like – boy or girl.
We yearn for their happiness.
Imagine this will come.
Most importantly though – Just Believe.
Queer Affirmative Culture transcendence is on its way.
Does this make sense?
I hope it makes…
