On Finding Strength 15 Years after 9/11 - The Aerogram

Beautiful essay at The Aerogram by my friend Rohin Guha
At that age, I would still be naïve to the future that awaited me and millions others who were born in this country with skin colors, physical features like mine: A future where the night before flying out of any airport, I would always make an hour to shave my beard off; a future where when speaking to airport officials, I’d always find a way to play up my queer identity to the tune of something GLAAD would approve. It’s a future where when I hear about family members of mine — especially elderly loved ones — traveling alone, my stomach is in knots until I hear that they have landed safely.
