Gay, but at least I’m white.

Someone once told me in conversations that even thought I was gay, at least I’m white. As if I wasn’t allowed to feel oppression and struggle, because white trumped gay. There’s another side to it, I know. In some ways it can be harder to be gay and black, but I’d rather not bring the race card into the gay community.
