Everyone should live authentically

RE: “Supreme Court could push transgender or gay employees into the closet” [Letters, May. 8]:

No, we do not want 5 percent — or any percent — of people in the United States or in the world to be afraid to live life as who they are.

We are all entitled to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

Let’s all live up to the declaration that we have made.
