Yes!!!! I came to that conclusion a couple of years ago. I speak up powerfully and often for social justice, but I am not speaking to homophobes, haters, or other bigots. Why should I? Good, decent, moral, loving people OUTNUMBER them. We’re already in a majority, but we’re mired in a system where that doesn’t matter as much as it should.

We have to ally ourselves to one ANOTHER — to learn, teach, strategize, and implement effective tactics.

Intersectionality? Sure. But so much more than that.
