Staying true to our beliefs is sometimes difficult, but it helps to state them clearly. Write them down, read them, feel them. Here are a few of mine:
I believe in equal access to education.
I believe in equal human rights, including freedom to love who we love without persecution, with equal access to the legal benefits of marriage.
I believe in unconditional human regard, including the individual’s right to be treated with the same dignity and respect as every other individual.
I believe in blurring and blending gender roles and notions of gender identity.
