the longer this day (day of silence) goes on the more pointless it feels; it’s just people laughing while i play charades. the people are not learning, they don’t understand anything, what we should be doing is educating them on this issue and making them feel for it. not speaking will not do anything for people who need to know what this is all about. it does not raise awareness. this day doesn’t mean anything to anyone who isn’t participating or aware of lgbtqia+ issues.
i’m getting increasingly frustrated because i want to speak out, i want to tell people that they don’t understand, i want to explain everything, it’s so frustrating.
we need to take action.
