MFHQ MEMO | From Chambana Mendota with Love

Please do your best to love, respect, and protect your fellow human beings, even if “man,” “woman,” or “heterosexual” are not a part of their self-describing vernacular or conscious being. They belong, they matter, and they should have the opportunity to contribute greatly to our society just like everyone else. Give them the room to grow and tools to thrive, whether in the big cities or a small town near to you. Pride, ideally, is in the name of love and should not be limited to parade days like this Sunday. Cheers.
