"Because of its near universality, heterosexuality is one of the
most unifying forces in all of humanity...Imagine missing that one
key piece of your humanity and what that would feel like. It's a
slow terror. And once you are gripped by that fear, a glowing
red-hot brand ascends from the depths of the earth, up through rock
and soil, and bursts forth to sear three black words right onto
your heart . . .
Part of being young and gay is the feeling of being broken, of being trapped inside a fleshy machine that is inexplicably flawed. And you have no idea why."
