Yesterday was one of the hardest days of my life. I was told that I’m an abomination and to “have fun burning in hell”. Over 150 people deleted me from social media. A lady from my parents church posted a status about me stating that I was wicked and morally decaying. I received a threatening phone call where I was told choosing to marry a man will be the worst decision of my life and they would make sure of it.

Today was better. I woke up next to the man I get to spend the rest of my life with. Over 630 people liked my relationship status update on social media. That’s over 630 people who support me. And I was told I’m loved by hundreds of people. My hope is that my experiences will positively impact that of rising generations to be better than that before us. That at least one person will see this and not be afraid of who they are because love is stronger than hate.
