The Privileged Queer

Finding your voice in a space you feel you don’t belong

Even in a community that talked about these things and made room for open queer discussion, I treated my bisexuality as a fun fact and not a core identity.

I never struggled with queerness.

I don’t have a queer voice because these stories emerge from the force of overcoming adversity and I overcame nothing to be here. I don’t have a queer struggle.

What does privilege even look like in a queer space?
