from Through The Front Door by EDDY LEFEY
I think about how my family, friends, and employer will react to this news. This is definitely disturbing. I know I’ll have to deal with the fallout soon. It scares me, but it’s Gary’s hateful tone regarding Thomas that is really upsetting. I just don’t understand it.
How can someone such as Gary, who’s been subject to harassment and discrimination himself, condemn or discriminate against someone else? I have always been a proponent of the idea that if one wishes love and understanding about one’s differences, one has to love and understand others’ differences.
Reactions like Gary’s baffles me. I’ve known there was discrimination within the gay community based on race, economic status, or against other communities within the LGBT context, but I thought a rational, educated, intelligent person like Gary wouldn’t stoop to that. That kind of thinking has always made no sense to me.
I glance up. Thomas’ eyes are still locked on me. I feel my cheeks redden. My cheeks reddened even more. I’m so embarrassed. I check device again. I fiddle with the settings of the app and change the passcode. I look up again to Thomas, whose expression hasn’t changed. “I’m sorry you were put in the middle of this.”
from A Hopeless Mirage by KEVIN CAUCHER (my story! exclusive excerpt on my blog)
I arrived a couple of minutes early. Since I had the extra time, I decided to get my phone out and see if anyone was nearby. The phone buzzed when the Grumblr application loaded. I was almost excited, since that indicated I’d got a message, which was quite rare. y mood was quickly dampened when I read Sorry, no rice.
“Why did you even bother?” I muttered, not sure if the question was to this guy or myself. Usually people just blocked me after I sent them the face picture. Since he didn’t, I blocked him instead. “Guy, you should accept the fact no one would want anything to do with you. Not on apps, at least.”
I rested my head on the steering wheel. It wasn’t to calm myself down—I’d encountered too many situations like this to be angry—but rather to recover from the casual racism in the words.
I shrugged and raised my head. I was meeting Lachlan’s boyfriend—or so I assumed—and I wanted to be cheery and present a good first impression, seeing as Johan was going to move in with us. I gave the phone one last glance, thinking I should delete the app. I looked at the passenger seat and picked up the box of chocolates, since I’d been told Johan loved them.
