Help me fight for LGBTQ freedom and dignity!

As an LGBTQ advocate and writer, I find my voice increasingly stifled. Facebook has decided that some of my writing is “hate speech” and that my stories are unreliable “fake news.”

For a person like me motivated by love for the suffering and oppressed, that’s a real blow. And the details? Hard to believe. Would you read this story for the fairly ridiculous details, then help me share?

LGBTQ people deserve to speak and to be heard. Charging us with “hate speech” for speaking up about persecution by the powerful? Intolerable!
