I am the girl kicked out of her home because I confided in my mother that I am a
I am the prostitute working the streets because nobody will hire a transsexual
I am the sister who holds her gay brother tight through the painful, tear-filled
We are the parents who buried our daughter long before her time.
I am the man who died alone in the hospital because they would not let my partner of
twenty-seven years into the room.
I am the foster child who wakes up with nightmares of being taken away from the two
fathers who are the only loving family I have ever had. I wish they could adopt me.
I am one of the lucky ones, I guess. I survived the attack that left me in a coma for
three weeks, and in another year I will probably be able to walk again.
I am not one of the lucky ones. I killed myself just weeks before graduating high
school. It was simply too much to bear.
We are the couple who had the realtor hang up on us when she found out we wanted to
rent a one-bedroom for two men.
I am the person who never knows which bathroom I should use if I want to avoid
getting the management called on me.
I am the mother who is not allowed to even visit the children I bore, nursed, and
raised. The court says I am an unfit mother because I now live with another woman.
I am the domestic-violence survivor who found the support system grow suddenly cold
and distant when they found out my abusive partner is also a woman.
I am the domestic-violence survivor who has no support system to turn to because I am
I am the father who has never hugged his son because I grew up afraid to show
affection to other men.
I am the home-economics teacher who always wanted to teach gym until someone told me
that only lesbians do that.
I am the man who died when the paramedics stopped treating me as soon as they
realized I was transsexual.
I am the person who feels guilty because I think I could be a much better person if I
did not have to always deal with society hating me.
I am the man who stopped attending church, not because I don't believe, but because
they closed their doors to my kind.
I am the person who has to hide what this world needs most, love.
I am the person who is afraid of telling his loving Christian parents he loves
Re-post this if you believe homophobia is wrong. Please do your part to end it.
I am a bisexual woman and I am horrorfied that so many people are prejudice toward
people that love someone of their own gender. LOVE KNOWS NO GEN
| for all you narrow minded people out there who still think that being gay is
bad, I am saying I don't think I'm lesbian or Bi. Or tran. Yes that's right, to any
narrow minded hetro-sexuals out there you are reading from a straight girl who thinks
gays are equal if not better then us.
P.S I didn't write this, I copied it from a Email my friend sent me and she got it
from somewhere else.
P.P.S, out of protest until i can go a full month without hearing or reading the term
"that's so gay" I am using the term "that's so homo-phobic" about anything uncool.
does it make sense? no! but neither does "that's so gay". Which is why I'm doing it.
I went almost two weeks, then a kid called his scissors gay. his scissors!
Inanimate, no mind, no feelings, no love life. But i had to restart.
