Terrance Has Tons Of Patience

I don't read the rag and don't care if they acknowledge me and mine.

An Open Letter to Ebony Magazine by Terrance Heath/The Republic of T.

To the Editors of Ebony Magazine:

I grew up with Ebony. My parents subscribed to both Ebony, and I can recall grabbing each new issue and reading it cover to cover when it arrived. But eventually I stopped rushing to pick it up, and rarely read it as an adult. The reason is because I so rarely saw myself reflected in its pages. I felt invisible.

I am a black gay man. I am also a father. So when I saw your cover story, "The New Black Father," I bought a copy and was as anxious to read it as I had been when I was growing up. Again, I was disappointed...
