For weeks I’ve been writing about marriage equality and political upheaval in Venezuela, and while all of that is extremely important to me, I’ve neglected to comment openly on my daily medicine. I’m sure a lot of my readers, like myself, have daily crap filling their lives: drama with friends, running errands, taking the kids here and there, financial problems, medical problems, on and on and on. While driving around today, running errands, a million things were running through my mind, stressing me out. And then I remembered! Tonight is the premiere of LOGO TV’s 6th Season of RuPaul’s Drag Race.
Every day, I am still getting tons of emails and messages regarding the Dear Annie letter I wrote about how my life would be affected by a ban on gay marriage. To date, I think the post has received something close to a million views and has been shared all over the place. It is extremely humbly to write a small, blog post and see it spread it’s wings and fly around the world. I’ve always been a believer that as a writer, once I’ve written something and put it out there, how people interpret it or what they do with it is up to them. That being said, to find out that what I’ve written has impacted someone’s beliefs or actions in a positive way is extremely powerful.
