I would by lying if I said I wasn’t still reeling from the results of the election a few days ago. I know most members of the m/m community are. Scrolling through Facebook, it’s clear people are devastated, and trust me, I feel that devastation. I am not American, and so I did not have a voice in choosing the outcome of the polls, but I cried right along with you on Wednesday morning. I woke up to a different world. I felt the shift immediately.
The future is unsure. It’s a game of wait and see, and from everything I’ve seen, there is not much hope that the fight for equality for members of the LGBTQIA family, for women, or for POC will gain much ground in the next four years. But in the wake of this heartbreaking turn of events, all I can do is fall back on what I know. I read and write romance. Yes, there is an element of escapism there and that’s probably something we could all use a little of right now, but more than that is the prevailing theme that love conquers all.
I truly believe it does.
The next four years are all but guaranteed to be tumultuous, and there will be hills we must climb and ground we must defend. I will be right there fighting alongside you. In the meantime, I will continue to write stories where love overcomes all obstacles, where to people can meet and even through the unlikeliest of circumstances emerge through the other side to their happily ever after.
