Today is one of the greatest days of the year — National Puppy Day. Far superior to National Boyfriend Day, National Puppy Day celebrates the small, furry companions that would never betray, cheat on or leave us.

Yes, even as a black gay woman, who comes from a lower-income family, there are times when I walk in privilege. Sometimes those who are marginalized are so concerned with how society is treating them — with valid reason...
