The Story of One Person's Courage to Live Their Life Being True to Themselves
on December 9, 2016
All she wanted is a story about a person who wanted to live their life in a way that made it comfortable for them. The problem is that society does not like anyone who is 'different' or outside of the norm, and we have a need to destroy these kinds of people, or we have the need to force them to conform. It is only then that we, as a society, can accept them for who we've forced them to be, not for who they really are. This is why we have so many hidden 'sub cultures' in out society, because the only way they can live in a way that is acceptable to both themselves and society as a whole; is to do it in secret. 'Brandon' is a 'king', and not the only 'king' who lives amongst us, he unfortunately ran foul of the wrong people and he paid the ultimate price. We as people don't like being made fools of, even if it means we are foolish, and we can not accept anyone or anything that is slightly different to our reality; we have this inbuilt drive to make others and things to conform to our reality, and I for one, think we miss out on so much. This is a must read book for everyone, particularly if you live as or with, or work with or know someone who comes under the GLBT banner.
