The Queer Life

"We started talking last January, and two weeks later I proposed. Everybody said, “You’re crazy.” My parents were like, “You don’t know this girl.” But when you love somebody, I don’t think time or space matters. In the queer community, it’s how we love, how we build our relationships, how we build families. There’s no rule book, so all of these traditional ideas about this timetable, about this sort of [interval] until you know your heart is protected with another person, are a bunch of crap."
