really liked it

I enjoyed the book and one of my favorite lines from it is this:

"I am gay, I am not seeking to be "tolerated." One tolerates a toothache, rush-hour traffic, an annoying neighbor with a cluttered yard. I am not a negative to be tolerated, and I don't think that other minority groups would feel comforted and equal to hear leaders of the general public self-righteously proclaim that "we" should "tolerate them." That's not equality."
What a powerful statement and one that I would hope everyone could get behind. As Rupaul likes to say...everybody say LOVE!

At times it was slightly sporadic, but I enjoyed her story and learning about her.
