May 17 is a day that tells us about silence. In particular, it tell us that silence can be deadly dangerous. It's a day that reminds us that it is deadly dangerous to agree with the silence that the homophobic part of our society forces us to engage with.They suggest that we should sit at home and remain invisible. That we should sit at home, that we should pretend that we are the same as they are. Pretend that we share their cowardice, their conformity, their facelessness. But we say no to that!
