Queer As Folk: 300 Word Story #24 ~ 14th Anniversary Edition ~ It's Time

2000 was the year our world got brighter. Showtime changed how the gay community was viewed and depicted beautifully in every nuance of acting. Liberty Avenue was full of love and laughter adorning every street corner perfectly. Rainbow colors festooned dozens of archways, lamp~posts and bars. People celebrated passionately, dancing around excitedly, rejoicing and throwing parties. PFLAG provided welcoming gestures for countless young boys who couldn't find stable environments, or happy families. Thankfully, they got Debbie for hugs and maternal love. Nobody else would understand how much it meant to her.

Jennifer loved being around that bustling environment filled with friendship, tolerance, and compassion. No hate was felt anywhere near love.

Brian said, "People are only tolerant when truth comes disguised as conventional wisdom". Lindsay imagined Gus grown-up and attending church, only to make millions of dollars selling real-estate successfully. What's unbelievable is, Jenny-Rebecca wanted Michael to go with Melanie to her recital. Melanie thought she would understand, but clearly she needed more convincing. For once, the family gathered together and attended Gus' graduation.

Later, Justin thought about stopping Brian to ask about Gus when Michael interrupted the idea. He sounded upset and confused explaining events. "STOP!" Everyone turned to Brian and hoped that he would be capable of solving the mystery of Michael's jealousy!

Finally, everyone hugged standing around Jenny. Uncle Teddy brought baked Ziti and meatballs along to the gathering. Birthdays came with festive celebration balloons. Later at Woody's, Blake told Ted how much he loves him so deeply. Shortly after that, Justin announced that he wanted a chance to travel to Spain and Portugal to celebrate Dia de los Reyes with Brian, soon. They made love under the stairs of the GLC passionately expressing their love.

Finally, Liberty Avenue celebrated all great people equally!

THE END
