One man. Indivisible. Black. Gay. American.

Alva Jones Jr.
Greensboro, NC

I’m a bit of a focal point of discrimination in this country. As a Black man I’m viewed as a threat. As a gay man I’m viewed as an abomination. These views have by no means been universal in my travels, but the reality of their existence is no less real. The recent revelation that same sex marriage opponents sought to drive a wedge between Black Americans and Gay Americans was baffling to me, as though one person could not be both. I am the sum of all my parts, and I am indivisible.
