It's so embarrassing to come to an open long table talk on what happens after 377A (if it gets repealed), only to find out that you are seated AT the only table that allows one to speak as part of the rules. 'Should I walk away? I wanna say something, but everyone's talking. Will ppl think I'm stupid? What if I hyperventilate halfway through my speech? What if someone roll their eyes? Is my hair ok? I think I need another glass of wine!' These were the thoughts that haunt my mind the moment the talk officially started. Eventually I did about nearly an hour into the conversation.
Honestly, it sounded weird, all over the place and I sounded like I came off the set of "Under One Roof", but I said my piece, contributed to the healthy discussion and critical feedback (made a lot of mistakes although I did not mean it that way). But all in all, despite the fact that there might never be a conclusion to this issue, what we know is that everyone has a part to play in the community and everyone can contribute to making this society a better one, however different we are from each other.
Thank you IndigNation for hosting this interesting event and thank you to Artistry for having all of us! (PS sorry I did not take the pic in the cafe due to sensitivity and I was probably too drunk to do so anyway LOL)
