When considering what queer joy means, I refer to the everyday beauty I find in nature. There is so much diversity in the natural world that we overlook and take for granted. “Queer” by definition is anything that transcends what greater society deems as “normal”.
What a blessing it is to exist beyond what we are expected to be. What an exciting journey it is to be able to discover and celebrate each other as we are. I want to stop in my tracks to appreciate the embodiment of love in other human beings the same way I might admire a setting sun after a storm. An insistence of radiance even after a torrential downpour. A pervasive YOU beyond the implications of who you were “supposed to be.”
Let it shine. Let it shine. Let it shine.
