this is how it feels.

For same-sex couples, taking a lover’s hand is almost never an unselfconscious choice

You have to think about where you are, whether you’re safe, and you have to look

By the time you determine you’re safe, you’re not even sure you want to hold hands anymore.

The genuine moment has passed, but you’ve invested so much energy and angst that now you can’t not take your lover’s hand.

You wind up holding and the only reason you take your lover’s hand is to prove that you can.

This was a beautiful, true, and sad statement. I have noticed among my LGBTQ+ friends is so often this self-conscious clumsy act. I am sorry. But someday soon. Great post!!!
