While hate is an awful thing, you have to ask yourself, what do you do about it?
From my experience, the best thing is to return hate with love. People hate the LGBT community because they are afraid of us. It's true. They fear difference of any kind, and we are a violation of their beloved gender stereotypes.
They want to return to the Leave it to Beaver world of the Husband as patriarch and bread winner, wife in the kitchen, and obedient children. Homosexuality is a direct threat to that. We defy the stereotype that boys love girls and vice versa.
They just need to get used to us, Drag Queens and all.
