Dear Rural NC’s LGBTQ+ Community: 

 You deserve a future that is brimming with opportunity, a life that is overflowing with love, and a community that embraces everything you have to offer. In the words of Glennon Doyle, “You are human, and your birthright is to remain fully human. So you get to be everything: loud, quiet, bold, smart, careful, impulsive, creative, joyful, big, angry, curious, ravenous, ambitious. You do not need to shrink. You do not need to hide any part of yourself.” We see you for who you are and celebrate all the joy and love you bring to the rural communities you call home. Happy Valentine’s Day! You will always have a friend in us.

 

Love, the NC Rural Center
