Beautiful Stephen! Profound. What a cruel irony that Reuben Shalome, one of the editors of the Partnered Pen, where you published this piece, is defending homophobic biogotry. Having dug into his writing, it’s no wonder why. The man is a troll and clearly a bigot himself. The Medium experience has been shocking and depressing for me today. It’s really sad to observe how much evil exists on this platform.
