Big Wheel Keep on Turning

I know the day will come when being gay won’t be any more shocking or news worthy than being 5’10” or having blonde hair. Even though that day isn’t today, every athlete or public figure who comes out puts us one day closer.

It takes an incredible amount of courage to be the first. Slowly, slowly, all these instances of individual courage will turn into collective acceptance.

Cheers to Derrick Gordon of UMass for coming out. May you now be able to live your life as you.

I’m a proud Minuteman today.
