The most important thing I can do in my life to make a difference for others. Where I have found a need is in the fight for equality for all. To my surprise I have learned that our country still has many laws that are discriminatory towards LGBT Americans. After many years of being in the closet and not sure what I could do that would make a difference. First it was coming out then it was being myself every day, now it is fighting for equality every day. After coming out, I now have more than enough opportunities to make a difference and educate others on how important it is to support the issues of marriage for gay and lesbian couples and gender identity equality. It is unacceptable that in the year 2010 in the US there are 29 states that you can be fired for being gay and 38 states for being transgender. I’m determined to make Maryland a state where everyone can work and live without fear of discrimination
