It has been revealed this week that the gay community in Toronto has been right all along. That their friends and community members who have been going missing were prey of a serial killer. Despite members trying to raise the alarm, the police kept assuring them it was all in their dramatic gay heads. I mean after all, they were talking about gay men and we all know how emotionally scatter brained we can be. It is very common apparently for us to leave behind family, friends, pets and work so that we can just run off to have sex somewhere for months without telling anyone. They are saying up to five people have been murdered and maybe more. I may have misunderstood the reports last night but from what I got out of the news story, was that the police were investigating a suspect for serial killings, yet didn't think they needed to alert the gay community. It is 2018 and in spite of the many advances the LGBTQ community has been making, it is really hurtful when you realize that law enforcement still see us as less important than the straight community. Homeless people, LGBTQ people, Native people, drug addicts and prostitutes, all garbage to be shoved to the side and only picked through when they have time for us.
