Today’s post is from Phil Ross, student at Indiana Wesleyan University, and a summer intern with The Marin Foundation:
It was a little over seven years ago when I first got a slur thrown at me I never expected. “You’re
a f*ggot” was poignantly spoken to me and even now I remember the smug face of the boy in
the gym locker room who stood in my face saying it. Smug, because he could see how totally it
disarmed me and how livid it made me. [Read more...]
