Reading Time: 4 minutes In this fucking stupidity that we find ourselves trapped in, we forget that everyone is just a human, who shits, who gets hungry and eats, who thirsts for water, who wants to belong to a community, who gets frustrated in traffic, who sins, who is trapped in a reality that is hard to accept, and who would like to consider themselves a good human being.

Exist, Resist, Persist and share with pride. Its pride month baby!
