That was hard, Jim. So very hard. I’m so very sorry. In your words I felt not just your pain, but the pain of an entire generation of gay, trans, and BIPOC folk who were actively shunned and rejected and hidden and denied the care that has been so readily available.

I missed the series when it was thrown onto Channel 4 on Friday (who watches live TV, right?!). But I’m about to watch it today.

I have tissues ready.

I shall be thinking of you and those you’ve lost.

Much love.
