Ryan

Why I Am Joining The March:  My name is Ryan.I’m fat, queer, agender and under the enduring eye of a panic disorder and anxiety. I lose myself in panic around crowds and loud noises, preventing me from marching in protest.

The new vice president wants me dead. The new president likely agrees. Their new administration aims to make laws leading to my demise, through denial of healthcare, ostracization, and laws making it impossible to find a job, a home, or even a grocery store that will serve me.

But I refuse to fall. Instead I will make my voice heard, whether they want to hear it or not, and together, we can make a difference. Together, we will build a future. Together, we will be each other’s hope.
