I am a 20 year old male and I swish, I flame and I sparkle. People in my city are almost never threatening to me, but people constantly need to let me know they disapprove of my presentation.

I was walking down the street past a group of men leaving a Mexican restaurant. One of them turned around, faced me and said “What the fuck, did you lose a bet? Only in Portland…” His friends all laughed. 

Last week I was waiting for a bus with an older woman who was talking on her cell phone. “The world sure has changed,” she said slowly, then looking at me, and when she made eye contact, she continued, Faggots everywhere.” Made me feel tired.
