Very interesting article on LGBTQ+ community and Stoicism.

I’m fairly new to stoicism and I’m learning a little bit about it every day and trying to apply the virtues on a day to day basis.

Maybe it wont be important for people here (I’m also not sure how stoicism sees ‘minorities’ though the article clarified it a bit. I know we’re all humans and that’s a big premise but it would be unrealistic to think we all have the same rights and are seen the same way in the eyes of society) so I wanted to leave this article here for minorities like me. I found it easier to understand and relate to this philosophy after reading. And it also has a very interesting take on contemporary stoicism. It talks about Rupaul as a source of the contemporary stoic Wisdom. I hope it makes some people uncomfortable since apparently a big part of stoicism is coming to terms with this discomfort we all feel in life situations.
