She’s good at laughing like sunshine and making me believe in the word “maybe;”
She’s good at cutting my hair.
She’s good at frothing my dreams into clouds and letting me steal the blankets at night;
She’s good at being still.
She’s good at dicing the onions when we cook and carrying the towels when we go to the beach;
She’s good at keeping me awake long enough to see the sunrise.
But she’s bad at making decisions and bad at crying and bad at sharing her burdens,
Bad at all the things I know how to do;
Bad at all the things I will be there to do for her,
And somehow, we’ll even it all out.
HRC was honored to present Colton Haynes with our Visibility Award in Seattle this past weekend. His speech was truly touching and there wasn’t a dry eye in the house! Coming out matters – especially for the countless LGBTQ kids who watch Colton’s shows.
An objective truth remains, that we live in a country where people are sometimes treated differently because of who they are and who they love. When people like Colton use their voice to speak up on behalf of equality, it changes hearts and minds. Congrats again, Colton!
