On Pride Month or any other month, I invite you to choose a part of your legacy to be to create a society (a community!) that is a bit more open, a bit more inclusive, and a bit more compassionate. But I hope that legacy involves speaking out for our LGBTQ community. That is nothing “in addition” to our compassion, kindness, and courage. That’s what they look like in action.
Could there be more dimensions to our liberation? This was the question that came to mind as I was watching an interview with ALOK. ALOK (Alok Vaid-Menon) is a writer, public speaker, and artist whose very existence seems threatening to some. Why? You’ll see it in this interview.
