This is important folks. Because - because these are not some open doors that have to be kicked in, instead they are heavy wooden doors with bad hinges and it hurts to accidentally stub your toes. It is still complicated to love a woman if you are a woman. And a man if you are a man. And if you are somewhere in the bounds of these two or something else, you are a bit in trouble. Because people WANT to put you in a category. Systematise. Close the boxes real tight.

If you are born satisfied in your skin and gender, lucky you. But the problems still persist. And that may seem insurmountably terrible and make some beautiful people scared and lonely. And it should not be like that. So you must parade through the streets and make noise and stand out and kiss your girlfriend or boyfriend without fear. And you must be wearing something that is not new Nordic minimalism, but more like that good old fashioned glamor and we must sing together: “We are mirrors in the sun to all who fight from shadows and we shout: long live the diversity!”
