When I was a kid, homosexuals were strictly in the closet.  It was too risky to come out publicly.  The word "homosexual" was barely whispered in polite company.

I was actually in my 20s before I first heard the word "bisexual."

Now, the LGBTQI community has come out into the sunlight.

I'm even learning new vocabulary, such as "gender non-binary," and I'm getting accustomed to using "they" and "them" in the singular, when appropriate.

The current administration may disagree, but many of us see no good reason to turn away from progress.

As far as I'm concerned, there is a brachah/blessing for LGBTQI individuals--it's Baruch . . . sheh-asani qir'tzono, Praised is the One who made me in accordance with the One's will."
