Question from dannys-pics
Hi I was the anon who said I wished you were my mom, and what you wrote was very beautiful. I wish my mom saw it that way but she thinks my being gay is her fault like *what did I do wrong?* I mean I know she still loves me but its like I've disappointed her or made her feel like she did something wrong. I don't know. I told her and now its like ok, I know, and we just will not say anything about it again. Anyway thank you for what you said it made me smile.

World Wide Pride
I may have mentioned before that I’m the academic advisor to the university GSA where I work. This was written by one of the members as he reflects on his coming out. I asked him if I could share it with you because it is so inspiring and honest. No, coming out isn’t all rainbows and parades…but as he demonstrates, it does gets better. Living an authentic life sounds priceless.
6 months ago today, I made the decision to be the man I was meant to be. For so long, I hid myself in the proverbial closet, ashamed of who I was inside. Looking back, I see a man who was denying himself the happiness he deserved. Today, I stand tall and proud of what I’ve become and how much I have changed and embraced my true self, a sacrifice, but necessary. Unfortunately, people I once considered family are now strangers, but people who were once strangers are now family. I have learned so much and want to thank everyone who has helped me along the way. Thank you to my family, who has adjusted so well to this change, and has stuck by my side through it all. I have the love of a man that accepts me, in spite of my many faults, and has shared with me great compassion and a love for life. I have been alive for 20 years, but I have only truly lived for 6 months.Thanks everyone for an amazing 6 months.
