There is a young man in his mid 30's walking across America to end discrimination by gender. His name is Alan Bounville. He is raising awareness of gender discrimination and promoting equality for all Americans. He is a gay man. He also does a short skit or play at various locations and it is a wonderful one. It brought tears to my eyes since he talks of those who have given their lives in this fight. People like Mathew Shepard, Bryan King and more. He is currently in Florida south bound to Orlando, He will then head back north to Washington DC.
TWO LOVES~Lord Alfred Douglas
And as I stood and marveled, lo! across
The garden came a youth; one hand he raised
To shield him from the sun, his wind-tossed hair
Was twined with flowers, and in his hand he bore
A purple bunch of bursting grapes, his eyes
Were clear as crystal, naked all was he,
White as the snow on pathless mountains fore,
Red were his lips as red wine-spilleth that dyes
A marble floor, his brow chalcedony.
And he came near me, with his lips uncurled
And kind, and caught my hand and kissed my mouth,
Hello,im a new member.
My name is Gabbie.
Both my birth name,and trans name.
Out to my family as trans.
But,they do not accept it.
I have long hair,no binder.
And im forced to wear girly clothing,and forced to identify as female.
I look in the mirror,and know that.That's not me.
I am,a boy.
I may have girl-ish tendencies or,i may somewhat still like men.
But that's just who i am,I like wearing eyeliner.
And im obsessed over hello kitty.
To me that doesn't make me less of a man,That just makes me who i am.
But to my family,that means im still a girl.
For Gays, Lesbians, Bisexuals, Transgenders, Questionings, and Gender-queers. (Yes, I have included you :D )
why can't people love?
why the push and shove?
why can't men love men,
and women love women?
it's how we were born,
i don't see any sinnin'.
and what's the problem with transgender?
it's not like i'm a sex offender
if god made me one way
i also have free will
in my life you have no say,
so keep your tongue still.
what's the whole big fight?
what's really the issue?
let us have our rights
i'm not trying to twist you, dismiss you
I was sitting in my first meeting of the year of the GLBTQ support group at my school this morning.
We have alot of kids from 9th and 10th grades, especially, so the 11th and 12th graders and everyone are trying to figure out how we can get a manageable support group size so everyone can get their turn talking and getting help.
Now, last year, it was 9th grade and 10/11/12 by ourselves.
Now, people are offering ideas about "how about we do the gay boys, together, lesbians together, bi kids together, and questioning kids go wherever they think they go?"
Which is great.
For everyone else.
When did it change from GLBT to LGBT???? For years it was always GLBT and now suddenly its LGBT? I like the GLBT Better....to be politically correct it should be BGLT or just BGT, What do you guys and gals think????
I found such a neat place to talk, chat, exchange ideas, and such. It is a chat room, but so unlike any that i found before. Here i can see who i am talking to and interact with them. No not their pic, not a cam, but a avaitar type of thing, a sim if u will. i choise a body type, a hair style, clothing to ware, and so on until i had a person who looked like me looking back at me on the monitor.
Hey. A friend and I are looking for camps for GLBT teens (we're 15 and 16). I've found three but most are for kids of GLBT parents. If anyone knows of any residential summer camps out there for GLBT youth please let me know.
These are the 3 i've found
I have a job interview on Monday after school...My first ever. God, I am soooo scared...so nervous. I hope I don't fuck up on something. *Shudders* On the other hand, I really hope I get the job (I need to make money somehow, I'm sick of having to ask my parents for money all the time.) I hope it goes good. XD There's always a first for everything, right.
I am watching Wedding Wars Monday night, as well. :)
