“Love knows no gender, age, race or religion.”
I recently saw the movie Love, Simon, which is about a male high school senior who is still in the closet about being gay. Spoiler Alert! He eventually comes out in a very unfortunate way, which causes friend issues, yet had a surprisingly very sweet ending. Simon’s parents handle the situation in the best way possible, in my opinion, loving their son no matter what and telling him that he can now fully be himself.
This movie has several great life lessons within it, but the one key takeaway that I wanted to share is: Never be embarrassed or ashamed by who or what you love. Love is beautiful, and it should never be hidden. As hard as it may be for some, I hope that everyone in this life has the opportunity to love someone openly and honestly, to love someone who is right for them and unconditionally accepting of them. “Love knows no gender, age, race or religion.” Love is free-flowing and uncontrollable. Love who and what you want, and love without hesitation. People who discourage that love and are not understanding will not have a positive influence on your life.
With that being said, I want to make it known that To Be Loved Events is an inclusive, loving, encouraging and safe place. I want all people to be comfortable with who they love, and I encourage all marriage regardless of gender, race, age, religion, etc. Love is for all people, and I want to help celebrate that. Everyone deserves to be loved, and everyone should be able to love in their own way.
