It was a simple request.
Did I know of any prominent Australian’s prepared to sign their name to a letter to stop the plebiscite.
Yes. Yes, I do know some. I began to make a mental list.
Then I started crying.
On a day when one of Australia’s newspapers publishes a derogatory cartoon depicting Nazi SS officers in ‘gay apparel’ and a day that saw the GLBTIQ radio station, Joy 94.9, receive a bomb threat, I was about to email people I know to ask for their support.
Ask? Beg? Feels like begging.
This is so deeply personal while the hate war rages around me I feel compelled to make a stand for a simple, basic, human right.
I have to ask others for their support.
Sometimes I’m not at all sure I’ll last the distance. I will, of course. It’s hard.
