My cause is equal rights because I believe that we were all created equal and should be treated as such.
Being a lesbian in the military has not been easy, but always remaining strong and staying true to who you are is always the best road to take regardless of negativity people may display towards you. You can only control your own thoughts and feelings, so not letting external factors affect you is what matters most. Everyone has different views, opinions, and beliefs, but that doesn't make someone better than someone else just because they do not share the same views.
