LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

A kind and thoughtful letter of apology

EDITOR:

This is a letter of apology to the presumed gay man in front of the Egyptian Theatre Wednesday June 12th. I was walking down the sidewalk and stopped to ask a man and woman standing there if they had liked the movie. They were friendly and affable to me, but first impressions can be misleading. You walked up the sidewalk just then, and confronted them for something rude that they'd presumably said about you as you'd walked down the sidewalk previously, and you'd returned to confront the couple. I didn't know who was right, and it wasn't any of my business. Until the male called you a Faggot and got a nasty sneer on his face when asked 'Did you call me a faggot?' and replied 'Maybe I did!' in a tone that suggested to me he wanted to start a fight. I was shocked and turned and walked away, sad and disgusted. I'm sorry for walking off. I'm a lesbian myself, and we are supposed to stand up for each other. I regret not doing so, even though I was tongue-tied. But if I had made it clear to them that they were talking about me, too, and went to stand next to you, I'm sure the words they needed to hear would have come to mind, and maybe next time they'd think twice. At least you might not have felt like a lone target in our own 'gayborhood'. I don't feel any Pride about the missed opportunity to stand with someone in the face of homophobia, and I won't dodge my responsibility next time. I hope that you are alright. Again, I'm truly sorry. We have got to stand together before this neighborhood, my home, our home, becomes completely intolerable.

Sincerely,

Erin Wade
Capitol Hill
Seattle
