I’m from a (relatively) small town/city, and it’s pretty rural and redneck. Basically, half the population has a gun in their hands and a deer in the back of their truck by the age of ten. This doesn’t lend itself to much in the way of LGBTQ+ resources.
Anyway, I went to a bigger city yesterday and made a stop at a book store. They have a branch of the same store in my town, but I wanted to see what the city had to offer.
They had an entire LGBTQ+ section. That’s something I’ve never seen before. I honestly, actually, seriously almost cried. I also threw out my meagre savings so I could buy four books (plus one for a friend). There were still two others books I wanted but couldn’t afford.
Plus - there were books on being nonbinary. I have never ever seen that before. I got so excited.
So yeah. I saw a small LGBTQ+ section in a bookstore and I almost cried. Good times.
