“Anusha Hall holds a photo of 15-year-old lesbian Sakia Gunn” by Akintola Hanif
Words by Darnell L. Moore via Hycide.com: 

We, brothers and sisters of color, do not implore racists to TOLERATE us.
We, brothers and sisters of color who are also financially strapped members of the 99 percent, do not request the economic ruling class to TOLERATE us.
We, brothers and sisters, should not beg our brothers to cease degrading our sisters and TOLERATE them.

We should be intolerant of any action, word, policy, or belief system that perpetuates violence and violation, hatred and prejudice, disharmony and disintegration (of our communities and one another). Homophobia is but one example. We LGBT folk, expect to be treated with the full respect: We want physical and verbal harassment to end; we want school and workplace bullying to cease; and we want murders (by others’ hands) and suicide (by our own) to end. We want to be able to love and make love to whomever we choose. We are living in times when we have to understand that denigrating one member of our community is a means of denigrating the entire community. We do not ask for the tolerance of heterosexual sisters and brothers, we ask for their love and full embrace.

    It doesn’t make me feel better that someone would just tolerate me. Matter of fact, I’d be pretty damn offended…
