The reality of life in prison for homosexuals and transgender individuals does not appear to reflect this myth. One young man named Rodney, imprisoned for fraud and check-forging, sent me a detailed account of his life so far in prison.

There's no such thing as a gay monolith. There are as many ways to be gay as there are colors in the rainbow now who is being easy and glib? Dishing out gay cards is like telling people they aren't allowed to be gay because they haven't seen the requisite number of Glee episodes.
