QUESTION: What Are You Thankful For?

thank-youIt’s been a banner year for LGBT people, with victories for marriage equality and against discrimination as well as advances in HIV/AIDS research and prevention. Though there’s still a lot of work to be done, it’s arguably a better time than any in history to be an LGBT person. We’re here, we’re queer, get into it. Get into all of it. As we head into Thanksgiving weekend, we’d like to know, Queerty readers:

As an LGBT person, what are you thankful for?

    I’m thankful that after 24 years my (not yet legal husband)still adores me. And if Texas gets marriage equality then Oklahomo hopefully won’t be far behind.

    I am thankful to be living in a country that offers the freedoms to the extent that it does. I am thankful that we have our U.S. Constitution (even though some elected public officials, sadly, are choosing to ignore it). I am grateful that the First Amendment allows me to voice my thoughts even though some media don’t allow for opinion that is not in support of their agenda.

    Great comment, and the rest of your post also.

    I’m thankful for so many things, I don’t know how to say them all.

    Simply put — I’m thankful for being a contented and happy gay person.

    I’m thankful that my grandparents decided to leave Russia in the early 20th century to come to NY. Despite all the problems, craziness and injustice in the U.S.A., I know my life is better than that of 90% of the people in the world.
