I fight because I’m too stubborn to sit at the back of the bus.

To quietly accept 2nd class status in society tacitly empowers prejudice.  Standing up for yourself feels better. By being unapologetic myself, my straight friends understand that we’re all on the same footing.
I’m lucky to live in Belgium where I was able to get married. And I have an employer who recognises my spouse for benefits and healthcare. I have nothing to complain about. But I fight so that everyone can have these opportunities, not just me.
