…In Memoriam 2022 …Urban LGBT+ Diaspora…

By: DeoVonte “Deo” Means

…To live is Christ and to die is gain. To suffer with Him, I know that I shall reign in His arms, over there, in that land bright and fair; to live is Christ and to die is gain…To gain my peace, from the storms that tear my heart into pieces, little bitty pieces, where no love can dwell there. To gain my robe and to gain my crown, to suffer is Christ, to go through is Christ, to live is Christ and to die is gain

Here at The Flyy-Life, we believe that there is indeed an absolute truth to our profound existence. The Grand Architect of the universe placed each of us individually in this volatile, operose, enervating world; and collectively we form an army of beautiful angels with a single mission. As we navigate through life, we are mandated to use our gifts, talents, and footprints to create a more perfect union as citizens of all humanity. This purpose is what inevitably challenge and propels society as a whole to evolve and expand our minds and presence from being mere shallow in nature.

This plight is what enables our dynamic and multi-dimensional diaspora to advance, survive and thrive as a collective, yet singular organism. As we conclude another cycle around the celestial heavens, we take pause and pay homage to our fallen angels. Although their physical beings no longer dwell amongst us- their contributions, footprint, and legacy will forever remain. For us mortals continuing our sojourn on this compelling odyssey called life, they’ve left behind an everlasting imprint! And until the day after eternity, their flame will burn in our hearts and light our path. Thy will be done… DeoVonte
