Tim McCarthy is an LGBT video historian who lives in Provincetown, MA.
At 59 years of age, Trump's presidency isn't the first challenge Tim has seen -- and it certainly won't be the last. Because the great arc of history and progress is fraught with obstacles and challenges.
While the Trump presidency can sometimes feel like the end, it's not. Sure, it's scary. And yes, we will need to fight like hell for ourselves and other oppressed communities -- but we will get through this.
And to that end, listen to Tim's queer pep talk. It's something we all need to hear. Again and again. For the next four years.
