All Are Welcome Here?

Today's draw from the Gay Tarot - authored by Lee Bursten, illustrated by Antonella Platano, and published by Lo Scarabeo - is the Nine of Wands.

Although in content completely different to the typical image of a wounded soldier by a barricade, the feeling I get is much the same. The guy hunches defensively as he walks past the Irish Pub. I imagine him having suffered in similar locations in the past, the victim of gay-bashing, whether verbal or physical.

I am grateful that most people I meet are not narrow-minded.

I am thankful that our society is more tolerant than in the past, even if there is still a way to go.
