It’s easy to live in Los Angeles and say, “Fuck the haters!” But it’s not that easy for Peter (a gay guy in Indiana) and Kelly (an evangelical christian woman in Virginia). Their correspondence is rather remarkable, I think, and reveals what is possible when people see each other for who they are, instead of what they are not. Bravo/Brava!
Every day, I am still getting tons of emails and messages regarding the Dear Annie letter I wrote about how my life would be affected by a ban on gay marriage. To date, I think the post has received something close to a million views and has been shared all over the place. It is extremely humbly to write a small, blog post and see it spread it’s wings and fly around the world. I’ve always been a believer that as a writer, once I’ve written something and put it out there, how people interpret it or what they do with it is up to them. That being said, to find out that what I’ve written has impacted someone’s beliefs or actions in a positive way is extremely powerful.
