From My Feed
Oh, Elder Oaks, I wish you could see the world from my feed.
I see lovely lesbians, gay dads, queer kids, trans parents, bi teens, and drag queens. I see love that defies the boundaries of kingdoms. I see joyful tears at gay weddings. I see proud Mamma Dragons and beaming Dragon Dads. I see Mormons building bridges, affirmation of varied identities, queer meals around the kitchen table, and flourishing. Despite the hardships, I see so much flourishing.
I see families. I see loving couples and even throuples. I see green hair, painted nails, and non-binary bodies. I see beautiful trans folks celebrating their unique bodies. I get to watch their transformations. I see my queer peers doing their best, loving their best, being their best, and excelling. I see lights, dancing, and music. I see parades, balloons, flags, rainbows, and signs. I see the quiet moments of queer love spread across my feed and I am humbled by its beauty.
I see bravery, authenticity, commiseration, and reconciliation. I see consolation and healing. I see community and understanding. I see supportive parents, loyal siblings, and unwavering friendships. I see people fiercely committed to their moral convictions toward an inclusive exaltation. I see the body of Christ exploring the meaning of charity through diversity. I see queer faces shining brightly for the world to see. I see love. I see so much love.
I see queer children of God with a divine destiny. I see queer priests and priestesses speaking on behalf of divinity. I see everlasting relationships and eternal families. I see clearly now that there is room for all of us in God’s glory, even if you don’t see it yet.
Oh, but I wish you could see the world from my feed.
