MILCK: Love Letter to the LGBTQ Community

Dear Beautiful Souls of the LGBTQ tribe,
I admire the bravery it takes to speak out for love, no matter what forms love may take. Love is love is love, and I thank goodness that we continue to expand our acceptance of the LGBTQ community.
To prevail as the truest form of oneself, despite the hate and fear that others project, is a deeply inspiring feat.
May we continue to lift the LGBTQ community, as there is still much more progress to be made - here in the states, and all over the world. LGBTQ rights are human rights. And we as a human race are not truly free, until all forms of love are free.
May I continue to aspire towards songs that give a voice of empowerment and hope to those who feel silenced. May I successfully communicate through every song: you are enough, you are loved, just as you are. You are love, just as you are.
