Today, it does not matter what state you reside in. The Supreme Court finally made the right decision. The LGBTQ community still has quite a bit to fight for………but in this moment, I am proud to be queer. I am proud to love the human I love. Permitted to marry across all state lines. Let’s keep speaking up, and being out. The fight for (true) equality continues.
My body is a building and in these thirty-six years of living inside it, I have been tagged and broken into. I have had invited guests and uninvited guests. I have even tagged myself.
Bodies are like buildings because they have many stories.
Bodies are like buildings because they have visitors.
Bodies are like visitors because they are hard but also cracked in some parts. They have windows; they see things. They can crumble; they can be built back up.
Tonight, I offer up my body as a building to be tagged. To be written on. To be entered with text or paint or labels or just wandering eyes.
