Happy Thanksgiving from me and my #QTPOC Nashville family! Having a group of people who relate to me, understand my struggles, and who also want to create a space for us is so magical. I couldn’t have asked for anything better. I am truly thankful to have the opportunity to get to know such sweet and passionate humans! They have already changed my life for the better.
Wherever you are spending Thanksgiving, I hope your family is showing you and your beliefs respect, isn’t dead naming you, or misgendering you. If they are, I hope you find strength and I hooope that you too have a support group. If you don’t, get ahold of me.
I am here for you.
Though I do not personally believe in “celebrating” the holiday and it’s violent history, I do hope that you give thanks to yourself and your accomplishments. Large or small, those accomplishments make up you. I also hope that there is love around you. Whether it’s self-love and/or love from your nearest and dearest, cherish that shit.
You deserve love and support.
