I was a few weeks into my job at The New York Times when I realized I was never taught how to love another gay, black man. But did I really know what I was doing? Did any of us? For most of my life, the most visible queer couples in media have been white. So I made a list of all the things in my life I started to question soon after working here.

My age: 24
My sex: Fem
