Today is the last day to enroll for healthcare, and, to help you understand how the Affordable Care Act aka Obamacare benefits LGBTQ people with disabilities, here are some resources I have found.
- Health Reform and People with Disabilities by the American Association of People with Disabilities (AAPD)
- The Benefits of the Affordable Care Act for LGBT People by the Fenway Institute
This is the page where Anne Frank talks about being attracted to women. I apologize for the shitty quality as my hands tend to shake. It says:
Sis Heyster also writes that girls of this age don’t feel quite certain of themselves, and discover that they themselves are individuals with ideas, thoughts, and habits. After I came here, when I was just fourteen, I began to think about myself sooner than most girls, and to know that I am a “person.” Sometimes, when I lie in bed at night, I have a terrible desire to feel my breasts and to listen to the quiet rhythmic beat of my heart.
I already had these kinds of feelings subconsciously before I came here, because I remember that once when I slept with a girl friend I had a strong desire to kiss her, and that I did do so. I could not help being terribly inquisitive over her body, for she had always kept it hidden from me. I asked her whether, as a proof of our friendship, we should feel one another’s breasts, but she refused. I go into ecstasies every time I see the naked figure of a woman, such as Venus, for example. It strikes me as so wonderful and exquisite that I have difficulty in stopping the tears rolling down my cheeks.
If only I had a girl friend!

Why oh why did my bio-dad’s family have to get back in touch with me? Fuck.
