By hitting “Submit,” I donate this story to the public domain. It may end up in a zine, on a wall, on the internet, or in a cross-stitch. It may be read aloud by strangers, projected in ten-foot-high letters on a building or be folded into a small paper boat and sent down a river. It may land on the eyes and ears of someone who really needs this story. Thanks for contributing to queer history.
