The response: Mine is not some profound statement or even one touting my vehement belief in the need for equality for the LGBT community. I do think that members of this community should be able to live and love as they so choose. They're humans, with human emotions and desires, just like heterosexuals. But, my reasons are a bit more selfish. I simply like to be well read and saw this as another opportunity to read with purpose. I'd like to be more informed on this issue, especially as it relates to people of color, and beyond what I've seen on two wonderful TV shows ("The L Word" and "Noah's Arc"). So, cheers to the challenge that dare not speak its name.
