Dear Big Fatty,
I am writing this open letter to you because I hope that it will reach as many people out there and connects with people dealing with their grief and anger over the murders of our LGBT brothers and sisters and our allies in Orlando.
Firstly, let us start off with a chuckle. I had a really good chuckle as I was walking down the street listening to your show the other day that opened up with…
The following program has been recorded at an earlier date for presentation at this time…
Aren’t all your shows recorded at an earlier date to be presented the “next day?”
Now I am going to change gears for a little bit and touch on the “disclaimer” you mentioned when you were playing phone calls that you had received from Orlando and were about Gay Days 2016. A full week before the attack on us as LGBT individuals.
You made the comment that you were not being insensitive to what happened but that you still wanted to share the phone calls.
I do not think you were being insensitive at all. I think it is vital for us all to firstly, not give into fear and for lack of a better term, not go back in the closet.
I also think it is important to remember each individual that we lost and all the others that were injured, but let us remember them by standing strong and demanding equality, fairness and protection, holding our heads high every day in everything we do.
If we stop being us, homophobia will win. I don’t want homophobia to win.
As I was working on some articles that will be published later this week, I plugged in my headphones and hit “shuffle” and a song I actually had not heard before came up and the chorus really struck me.
The title of the song is “Unstoppable” and the artist is SIA. (just pronounce is like See Ya as in “See Ya Later”)
I’m a Porsche with no brakes
Yes I’ll win every single game
I’m so powerful
I don’t need batteries to play
I’m so confident
I’m unstoppable today
I’m unstoppable today
I encourage every one that reads this or hears it read by someone else to LIVE LOUD AND LIVE PROUD.
