The message is simple and resonant. Each of us simply wants to exist, love and be loved, and be accepted wholly for who and what we are. There are no apologies and there is no shame. There is only dignity, honor, and pride. No matter how some may choose to define, slight, disparage, or compartmentalize us, we are complete, dimensional human beings who transcend race, color, religion, nationality, gender, sexual persuasion, political party, and countless other categories that others assign to us or by which we are measured. All of us. Every last one of us.
