Lift The LGBTQ+ Community. Put Discrimination & Stigma Where It Belongs… In The Bin🚮!

Our world can be a fun place to live on, but at the same time, there are those moments where discrimination in any way or form, turns this world all too easily into nothing more than a place of hatred.

This article has been written in response to the fairly recent and appalling incident that occurred when another writer chose to discriminate the LBGTQ+ community.

I aim to set that record straight and, lift up this community, in an attempt to appease everyone who was negatively affected by it, and also in support of Yana Bostongirl Dr. Preeti Singh who recently wrote these next articles.

Both these two writers and previous editors for the publication that went ahead and caused the problem in the first place, felt that they needed to offer their apologies to the LBGTQ community at large, after the discrimination came to light.

🥰Let me first give my thanks to these two editors of the since closed pub, for their very kind time and thought to actually apologize, even though none of that was strictly needed, as they had nothing to do with publishing said article in question🥰.

But they did.

Because they cared and simply understood just how much hurt was caused.

Thank you to you both 😊.

Perhaps you may be wondering why I have chosen this opening image to my story today?
