I AM...

I am whatever YOU think I am until YOU get to KNOW me. This is true for everyone else too, of course.. so don't make assumptions about anyone or pass judgment; ask questions. You might just make a new friend.

AMAZING GRANDMA, 74 COMPOSES SONG TO HELP STOP PUBLIC SHAMING OF GAY PEOPLE

A grandma of eight, 74, has written a song to call for an end of shaming LGBTI people who want to feel comfortable with their partners in public.

Sherri Gray, from Nashville, Tennessee, took to a piano and poured her heart out. She was inspired by going to a church service for LGBTI people and realising that this place, apart from bars, was one of the only places they could feel safe to hold their partner's hand in public.

Gray hopes allies will be inspired to help the LGBTI community feel more comfortable to show public displays of affection with her song, 'Let's All Hold Hands'.

'I thought it was such a tragedy that they couldn't feel comfortable holding hands in public with their partner,' she told Gay Star News.
'The one thing we can do is love each other. We're all just human beings, what's wrong with just being human regardless of the package we're in?'

'Let's All Hold Hands' is a follow up to a song she wrote two years ago in tribute to her lesbian niece for her wedding. It went viral, with thousands of people listening to her pro-gay message.
'I'm vehement I will work for equal rights until the day I die,' Gray added to GSN. 'I'm never going to back off. When my rigid, churchy friends say something bad about gay people, I tell them what I think.'

Gray hopes that one day the world will celebrate a 'Universal Hand Holding Day', proving that it doesn't matter what sexual or gender identity you are, you should be able to show love and not be hated for it.
