Sochi 2014: What I Am and Am Not Worried About

as i’ve been talking on the Twitters about going next month to the Winter Olympics, several people have brought up fears for my safety as a member of the LGBT community.


that actually is not high on my list of concerns.

here’s what i am worried about, though:

so yeah — while the homophobia will never be far from mind, i have more immediate and practical/logistical things to be worried about.

oh! one more thing, i need to try to find mascots to take a picture with in my limited time!
