Not safe to be yourself

Dear white hetero sports fan man,
Let me give you an insight into why we need pride parades and still have much work to do with LBGT+ issues. Imagine you are dressed in your team colors. It’s late at night and you have to walk alone through a bad neighborhood where lots of hooligans from your rival team hangs out. Imagine how this would make feel. Then imagine that’s how you feel everyday when you walk out of the door. Hopefully you now understand that this has to change and help us change it. And, dear reader, if I’m preaching to the choir – just sing along!

(Nothing has happened to me, but sadly this has to be explained to some people.)
