Every morning when i wake up I apply my rainbow gear. First my
almost famous patch pants, the rainbow belt tightened to hold them
up. Next is the wristband I clean everyweek, placed on my left
wrist. The red always away from my body out of habit. After that
my wooden necklace is secured, brown from the back of my dirty
neck. Finally my beat up sharpie shoes, the rainbow laces most
promenent. I do not wear my rainbow gear as a fashion statement.
I do not wear it to be purposefully tacky. I wear my rainbow gear
as a sign to let people know they are not alone. I wear it to tell
the world, 'I'm here, Fuckin' deal with it.'
