Last Wednesday, a contributor for The Ideal Firestarter, our own Shauncea, did her Firestarter Minute about the still-unfolding situation regarding Jussie Smollett. The Ideal Firestarter was created to talk about uncomfortable things, and things which may be difficult. However, this platform is a safe space for LGBTQIA people.
The Ideal Firestarter realizes that hate crimes are a reality in this nation, and are enacted against people of color, non-Christian people, and people whom identify as queer. These acts, and their perpetrators need to be confronted. Hate crimes have no place in a society that touts freedom and equal protection under the law.
This platform will continue to be a support for people that identify as any portion of the LGBTQIA people. The Ideal Firestarter is a safe space and will continue to be a safe space and ally.
