Happy Thanksgiving!

Thursday, November 25, 2010 § 0

We live in a culture (and blogosphere) that tends to err on the side of negativity. And while there’s a lot to be negative about, I vote we put a temporary hold on the downbeat, just for the day.

Today, let’s be grateful for the good things. DADT discharges have momentarily ended, Victoria Kolakowski recently became the first popularly elected transgendered judge in the nation, and the It Gets Better Project has over 5000 user-created videos and over 15 million views.

They’re small things. And there’s so much more that needs to be achieved. But for one day, let’s be grateful. Tomorrow, we can go back to chaining our-selves to the White House fence, and calling out hate groups for what they are. But today, let’s all give thanks for what we do have, and what we have achieved, even if there’s a long way to go.

P.S. Queerty had a great post up yesterday about being thankful for all the beautiful queer kids out in the world. Check it out if you’ve got a few free minutes.

What's this?
