Thanks for joining me today for the Hop AgainstHomophobia. When I told my friend I was participating in this hop he asked me why? I'm not gay. Well, he's right. I'm just a straight girl trying to make a buck writing a book or two.
But you know what else I am? I'm a human being who believes that other human beings should get the same darn rights as me...whether it is drinking from a water fountain in the middle of the park, voting or getting married. Why should I be able to do something but someone else shouldn't? I'm no better than them...period.
My parents thought this way too—they instilled it in me. My kids feel this way because it was how they were brought up so it is their norm. Wouldn't that be nice if it was everyone's norm?
Funny—it feels so simple in my mind...
So I'm here today to shout out for the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia...this hop is just a little thing that I can do, but it makes me feel good inside. Because love and understanding is the way I choose to live.
Now, something else that makes me feel good inside is giving away prizes! So if you wouldn't mind leaving me a cute little comment (or not so cute works too *winks*) and on May 28th I will announce the winners here on my blog. So don't forget to swing on by again to see if you are the lucky one—well the lucky two! You each can choose any one book from my backlist and it will be yours...*big smiles*
Oh—and there are lots more blogs and prizes to be had...so make sure you hop around...well because this is a blog hop now isn't it? lol
