Is it possible to have pride about something and still think its a curse? I know I have gone back and forth on this over the years within myself. 

Our sexuality is not something developed through trauma, like some believe. Were born with it. There is not much we can do about it. Should we be looking at it like a deficiency? As if we were born “incomplete?” Let me ask you this, would you want your son or daughter to feel that way? Hardly.

We can be proud of who we are. Our sexuality can be celebrated and loved. Its OK to look to your Creator and thank them for this precious gift of individuality. 

A gift it is. We were chosen out of billions of people, trillions over time, to be trusted with such a unique gift. I don’t know the total population but LGBT people make up less than 5% of the population and I believe its officially less than that at like 1% globally, we would need an almanac for the latest numbers. Either way, we are rare. If you find yourself with a rare rock or gem your ecstatic! So why would we not rejoice when we are given a rare gift of being strong enough to be gay or trans or big or intersex. All of which are gifts and not curses.

No need to look at it as anything but because its your life and you deserve to be happy, right? Who says being trans is unlucky? Not in my eyes, you are to be coveted, like royalty. Same with homosexuals, we are princes and princesses born into greatness. It is our decision to embrace our gift or reject it.

Embrace it with me.

With Love
