Angry gay kid since adolescence~ 🌈😈🌈👿🌈😈🌈 As a gay kid who grew up in a conservative Christian household, I remember desperately asking God why he allowed me to be made this way (gay) and it always fell on deaf ears. I remember feeling completely alone, festering in my anger, shame, and hopelessness. Discovering bands like Marilyn Manson, Linkin Park, and NIN in middle school was a cathartic experience for me at the time. It was the first time I felt heard, and most importantly, empowered to ask questions that I was too afraid to ask, to question the faith I was indoctrinated into as well as my upbringing, and find the answers that I needed at the time. "The Fight Song" got me through many tough days. #marilynmanson #gay #queer Happy Sunday!
p.s. I'm still an angry gay....except I'm mad about things like how the U.S. doesn't guarantee healthcare as a fucking right. ADDENDUM: Although, I no longer have the need to reconcile my sexuality with my faith (mostly because I now have no faith lol) I fully support my fellow queers and allies who choose to do so. Whatever brings you peace, brings me joy. ❤️💛💚💙💜🤘
