Oh, Twitter. You can be a fecund steam trash fire. But sometimes, you are a place of grace and shared stories that are vital and radiant in our dark times.

This story involves the coming out arc on Supergirl, the guiding hand of a self-proclaimed “super duper gay” comic store clerk, and a powerful reminder that representation matters.



In times like these, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed and hopeless. But let us remember that no matter who’s in the White House, each of us gets to decide every day who we choose to be. Choose to be a helper. Choose to keep your eyes open to those who need a shoulder to cry on, or a supporter to buy them comics.

In comments, tell us what media you’d recommend for baby gays struggling. My pick: Steven Universe.
