Ways to Be

by Julia Connolly



I have gay friends who love football. I have straight friends who arrange flowers beautifully. I have lesbian friends

who adore looking girly. I have straight friends who prefer baggy bib overalls. I have female transgender friends

who smoke cigars and play golf. I have straight male friends who wear pink shirts. I am friends with straight couples

who flaunt their wild ways and bedroom escapades. I am friends with gay couples who love spending the evening

reading books by the fire. There are lots of ways to be and, unless you’re hurting yourself or someone else,

they are all okay.
