so alot of my friends who are "out of the closet" are talking
and all of a sudden the whole speech about people saying its okay to be you. and I accept you comes up.
my friends are all "I'm tired of that its over used."
Or a friend said, "I accept you, but don't like me."
i dont understand... isnt that the wat for people say to reassure us that
we're all good, that no matter wat, no matter who we are, we're stil going to b the same?
Here's a link to a youtube channel that is uploading stories from people who suffered bullying and went on to a better life.
Hope isn't lost. There's a good life out there and no gay teen should end theirs due to bullying. Hopefully if you're feeling like there's nothing in this life for you, this will change your mind. At least a little.
I apologize for interrupting your day, but someone you know needs to know this; if not you. Therefore, would you be so kind to take a few moments out of your busy schedule and read this, and then share it with others? After all, I cannot campaign alone.

HELP ABOLISH OPPRESSION AND REINSTATE the RIGHT OF CONSCIOUS
“…and oppress not the widow, nor the fatherless, the stranger, not the poor, and let none of you imagine evil against his brother in your heart.”- Zechariah 7:10
Hi everyone, I haven't posted on here in QUITE a while, so you may not remember me, but I thought I'd sneak in a shameless plug about the LGBT webisode series I'm starting, SUPPORT GROUP. It's about a group of LGBT college students and the crazy relationships they form both inside and outside of a counseling support group for people of differing sexual orientations.
Our website is http://support-group.weebly.com .
"Sara Joanne Morris and Jacob Nash Mackensie you have been found guilty of the crime of unlawful sexual conduct with the opposite gender. Your sentence for this crime is death by fire. Do you have any last words before the burning comenses?"
"One." Sara spoke calmly from the stake she was tied to. A furnace churning and pouting below her feet.
Have you every thought, "I want a sex change...or do I?"
Wondering what life as a gay adult would be after high school? Will I be able to find love? Will I be able to lose my ass purity? Or will it instantly be just like high school. Where you have to deal with evil stares and little mumbles out of freshmen. Will I be able to actually have my fantasies fulfilled?
Maybe not on this island. But maybe someday...

I Hate Piano Bars,
I Hate Creepy Old Men
I Hate Effeminate Gay Men
They make me feel as if living a homosexual lifestyle is a hopeless endeavor.
I've been looking up gay clubs in Manhattan which are more youth friendly. Splash has a College Night on Thursdays and Rush caters almost exclusively to an 18-29 crowd so there is a (small) glimmer of hope.
This is a personal thing, since I've never really had a true crush on anybody. I've only ever been truly attracted to girls, but I've never had a crush on anyone. So, does this count me as queer yet? It seems like a good discussion topic, and as long as you're all polite, I won't be pissed off at your answer.
When I woke up this morning I didn’t realize I'm gay, I’ve known that for some time now; but what I did realize is that slowly but surely the world is becoming more accepting of gays and lesbians. What more could I ask for? Well if you have read any of my previous posts you’ll know I strive for equal rights. I wish like hell I could have been in DC this past weekend for the march for equality, but since I was unable to make it I am thankful for everyone who showed up and voiced their opinion.
Anyone seen "Mango Kiss?" I have seen most but not all. From what I saw it was great. Damn it was funny! And I tell ya what I could relate to those women. If you want to watch a preview check out the link below.
Now I don't give out free bowls of soup or anything for joining; but I will offer the following list in return:
1. Video updates, some of which will be funny and some of which are meant to inform.
2. Blog updates pertaining to current LGBT issues that have sparked a general interest in me and should be shared with others; and blog posts that are of little to no relevancy to the LGBT community but are of interest to me and deserve to be shared.
3. An updated "Links of interest" section which shares links to sites within the LGBT community that I have found to be helpful.
Does anyone have any suggestions on any good gay and lesbian themed books worthy of reading?
Well, Gay Center, actually, but they've got a youth drop-in place, according to their website. I'm thinking of going there tomorrow morning. It's only a short subway ride away, and my mom will probably buy the "going for a long walk on the lakefront" excuse, or maybe I could bike over there and just label it as a bike ride. Problem is, I can't figure out when the hell they open, and I'd feel like an idiot if I got there and the place was closed. But hey, most places are open by like 10:30 / 11, right? Right. I'm nervous.
Hello to those interested! I recently opened a website dedicated to LGBT communities. I have an active blog, videos, links, pop culture section, a forum, and free membership. If you're interested check it out!
Thanks for your time =)
