Response to Dread Pirate Roberts (Reply #2)

Sun Aug 27, 2017, 12:00 PM

22. Good question. Here's a personal take

I grew up in a small town in Tennessee. My parents were decent people, but, sadly, never outgrew the racism of their youth and supported Trump. The community was heavily influenced by Southern Baptists and other right-wing strains of Christianity. I even went to a Southern Baptist school for middle and most of high school(as a gay man that wasn't fun.) Overall, I never felt home in TN. I recently moved to NYC and, honestly, I feel more at home here than I ever have in TN. I still love my family and I have friends that I miss there, but I never felt at home there.
