Trust Is A Choice
Trust isn't earned. It's chosen.
And that choice doesn't happen in a vacuum. It's subject to all sorts of societal pressures, prejudices, and cognitive biases.
That means if we're going to choose trust in moments with no perceived personal advantage, we must first commit to the concept of togetherness - the radical notion that none of us are in this alone.
When we make that commitment, something inside us might soften. And then we might choose to reach for another.
Even if we think that they're Queer.
