I heard a new friend of mine say that his experience is lesser than someone else’s because he doesn’t do “activism”. He has organized several programs in prison that benefit a whole spectrum of people. Specifically, he has promoted and created educational opportunities for all. Kind of a big deal if you ask me.
The fact that he is gay has no real bearing on his abilities. However, as a gay man that is fighting for equality, justice, and equal representation his work is inspiring because LGBT people need role models as well.
Role models, specifically role models that we can relate to are so important for the LGBT community both young and old because it introduces “normalcy” into our culture.
Your success is vital, that means following YOUR dreams and accomplishing them for YOU. Because one day, your work will probably be used as an example to somebody for following theirs.
