Years are funny things. They feel eternal in January, fleeting in October, and either meaningless or overwhelming by December. 2014, in my view, was pretty overwhelming. From my own coming out to the death of one of my idols to the rise of Laverne Cox and the threat of foreign terrorists, this year has been anything but dull. Obviously, I can’t comment on everything that happened this year, but I’ll pick the top five-ish things from each of these categories: my life, LGBT, pop culture, science, US events, and world events.
Stay tuned to read my take on the most influential aspects of the past year.
