12 years strong today. 👬

We are proof of what love, support, and inclusion can do for LGBTQ+ humans. We have experienced what true love can do for the human soul. We know why it is important to show up for queer youth. We acknowledge that their voices are the voices that adults need to learn from. We have lifetimes of personal experience with queer mental health. We carry with us lifetimes of queer oppression. We understand the importance of queer representation in public institutions. And we recognize the narratives that are used against queer liberty. We hear the lies because we live the truth; love wins. ✨

“Everywhere I'm looking now
I'm surrounded by your embrace
Baby, I can see your halo
You know you're my saving grace” 🎶

Internalized homophobia has been one of the biggest challenges of my gay life. Internalized homophobia happens when a person applies homophobic societal biases to themselves and it is expressed in a variety of ways. It is a form of oppression that gives advantage to heterosexual people and heteronormative behavior. 

At the last Newberg school district board meeting, Director Renee Powell cited an email she claims to have received from a gay couple. Renee paraphrased the email claiming the gay couple told her they did not need pride symbols to feel accepted or safe and therefore the symbols should not be in schools. Renee attempted to use this email as a justification of her recent vote to ban pride symbols in public schools. 

A gay couple claiming pride symbols should not be in schools is problematic as it is an example of internalized homophobia. This couple may not feel any safer when they see a pride symbol, but for the vast majority of LGBTQ+ humans, visible symbols of acceptance elevate feelings of security. Countless studies affirm this as do all of the LGBTQ+ youth in Newberg/Dundee who have spoken to the school board about the positive mental health benefits they have experienced when pride symbols are displayed at school.

It’s important to understand that Renee has chosen to ignore every single LGBTQ+ student voice while citing an example of an adult’s internalized homophobia as justification for her own homophobic action. This is very dangerous behavior that has few consequences for Renee but countless for LGBTQ+ youth. I know because I once was a queer youth. 🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍⚧️
