I'm going to a wedding party tonight. And I'm not looking forward to it. Sure, I'm happy for the new couple but I don't share the same enthusiasm for celebration that everyone else does. It's a reminder of everything that I don't have, can't have and never will have.
The heterosexual privilege of this nation will see to it that us gay folk all remain second class. Even if we did have all the rights and privileges under the law, it would be naive to think that it would really change anything. Just as racism in this country is alive and well, homophobic, bigotry will always be there too.
So while I'm sitting there at that party, "pretending" to be pleasant and knowing full well that many people there despise my true nature and assume that I'm "one of them", I'll be thinking how glad I am that I'll never have to see any of these people ever again.
