so, i'm kind of in need of help. i don't know how other high schools are, but there's only about 3 (myself included) openly gay guys at my school of around 1500 kids, and none of us can really get along entirely well. there's just this complete lack of a gay community here.
all of my friends are straight, and i don't think any of them truly understand what i go through so it leaves me in the dark whenever i want to be able to connect with someone, which is something i really desire-- to be able to know i'm not the only one.
our school has a very lame excuse for a GSA as well-- it's called Diversity Club (no doubt an euphemism, since our principal didn't want 'Gay' to be anywhere in the name) and i think either it scares away closeted kids (we do tend to have very frightening meetings sometimes; a lot of our members are pretty weird, to be polite) or they never get to hear about it since we don't have a voice at all in the school. get this: our school didn't even get to participate in day of silence because the officers didn't do anything about it.
so is there any advice you guys can give? i know i should probably do something with the club, but it would have to wait till next school year since this one is almost at an end. but i also do cross country in the fall and track in the spring, and it feels like i'm the only one who can get this thing going, although it's hard to balance sports and clubs and homework.
