Out here

I don’t know if you can see it

But I am out here

I wear my ring

Black on my finger

Purple eyeshadow

Striped T-shirt

Little flag on a necklace

A dragon keychain

A cake sticker

I don’t know if you notice

But I am out here

Teaching and tweeting

With metaphors to explain

Charts to compare terms

Comics drawn by those like me

I am not the only one

There are more of us

And we have always been here

Hiding in your history.

I keep sharing the good news

We exist! 

You are not alone!

You are not broken, neither alien nor robot.

You belong and are wanted

It gets better

Have hope.

I don’t know if you hear us

But we are out here.

Come on out

It’s a good day

To be ace.
