I could not agree more.

And don’t worry, Jonathan Yung, you won’t ever find me hiding my writing behind a pay wall.

That’s an ironclad promise.

The sorts of issues I care to write about — LGBTQ dignity and equality, HIV activism and the like — are far too important to try to use to make money.

I know other writers on Medium who also refuse to participate in the Partner Program.

I hope our numbers grow.

Down with pay walls!
