Living in Queer Kentucky — not always easy

“I live in Shepherdsville, KY. It is difficult living in KY. It was difficult growing up in KY. Being queer and living in Bullitt County, you always have to be alert of your surroundings. You can’t presume you’re safe just because you live in Bullitt county. You’re only safe if you’re white, redneck, religious, and heterosexual. The head of the KKK is in Bullitt county and that weighs heavily on my mind. I don’t feel welcome because I identify as a pansexual, intersex, and transgender man. Some people would consider me abnormal or weird. A lot of LBGTQ spaces are mainly designed and inhabited by gay men.” — Rey
