The Sweet Taste Of Support

, , , , , | Working | May 30, 2017

(I and a friend are sitting in a fast food place, eating our food and talking. We are both trans (MTF) and are very early in our transitions, so it is noticeable. We have just finished our burgers and are about to get up to leave, when the store manager walks over with two small desserts. She places them on the table in front of us.)

Me: “What’s this? We didn’t order dessert.”

Manager: “It’s on the house. This is just my way of saying congrats on living your lives the way you want. I have an aunt that’s a member of the LGBT community, and the stuff she has to go through on a daily basis… I can’t even comprehend. This is just my way of showing support.”

(The manager walked away, and my friend and I began tearing up. It was years ago, but it made our day, and I will never forget that kindness!)
