Gay marriage was not legalized in Canada unitl 2003, in the US until 2015, and not until December 2017 in Australia. Until 2020 you could be fired from your workplace because of your sexual orientation in the US. In 2016 a man killed 49 LGBTQ+ people in a gay club in New Orleans. further, LGB youth are 5 times as likely to to have attempted suicide compared to heterosexual youth. The 'crusade for liberation' is not a long dead fight, its an ongoing campaign for protection from discrimination, and equality. To claim that no one cares about a persons sexuality is a vastly flawed generalization. I'm in a very fortunate position where I am able to share my story with the world without of being rejected by those close to me. I am proud of who I am and I celebrate my differences. Since 1903 when being gay was a crime we've progressed a lot. That progression was earned through riots, activism, and allyship; today I'm using this article as a means to continue driving the conversation. I'm sorry you didn't take more from the article, I hope you took something from this response because thinking like yours is contributing to holding the world back.
