It's okay to be gay....
Where ever you are in the world (even if it's Tennesee), it's okay to be gay.
You are a beautiful child of God no matter your sexuality. It's okay to be gay.
No matter what ignorant people say (or don't say) about you or the ones you love, it's okay to be gay.
One day I hope their hearts will soften, and they will no longer be afraid. But even if they never change, it's okay to be gay.
And if you live in Tennesee and cannot say gay, then remember, it's okay to be Takei.
