Gotta love some Lady GaGa (:
A story I wrote was published by these 3 guys. They started a gay athlete blog for people to relate and share stories. I can’t make a coherent blog post now (too tired :P), so I figured I’d share with you this story. It’s kind of a cliche “I-am-who-I-am” kind of story, but I liked it at the time. Maybe with more sleep I’ll think better of it.
Ok so where do I start? Everytime I take one step forward, life throws me three steps back. I need to find a new job quick b/c im running out of money, and i still have to pay for university and car insurance. Me and Ricky are talking but not in public or face to face, all we seem t do is message each other on facebook. :( Wish I could get some one-on-one with him. For the past three months I've been harassed about being gay and being in weight room.
i used to have a huge crush on some guy at school and i confronted him over last summer. i knew he was gay so there shouldn't be any awkwardness but he began to avoid me and i got the hint. he obviously had no interest in me. at first it was really hard accepting the fact we could not be together.
Living in a suburb, in a state that constantly rains, and in a chaotic family comes me. I'm your typical boy next door and like most people on here I'm gay, or am I? Only time will tell really. Being in the closet isn't much fun. I have to feel bad all the time, ask God why me, and thank God for repealing DADT, if I do come out by the time I start to serve. I took up this Journal as a new hobby for me and to give all of you the documentation of the life of a boring teenager who is yes, in the closet. Wow big surprise there, eh? Sure one person (my bestfriend) has suspicions about my sexuality, and sure when she or anyone else asks I deny that I am, and sure I also have only had girlfriends. I'm also a virgin and the closest I've been is a damn peck on the lips. I'm almost a legal adult! That's a bit effed up if you ask me.
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

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 told my friend Haley and she then told everyone in school, im so embarrassed even my teachers know, they dont let me sit next to guys anymore its so embarrassing....
I'm trying to tell my parents that i'm bi but i don't want to put that burden on them they are busy right now trying to help my cousins get through their ordeal , my uncle cheated on my aunt so now were fighting them for custody so i cant tell them now what do i do?
I'm tired of keeping it a secret..

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.
