Heads up for international issue [11 Dec 2009|01:09pm]

[ mood | pissed off ]

Since this community has been dead in the lines of posting I figured that it would be important to kick start the community again with letting people know about pending legislation in Uganda.
http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20091208/ap_on_re_af/af_uganda_gay_death_penalty I give my apologies to those already active members of HRC because they've been covering that for a while.

Pride! 09 in Toronto [29 Jun 2009|08:27pm]

Hello people!

Sunday was the TO pride parade! Yay! I skipped out on marching in the Dyke March on saturday, since it costs me a fair bit to get into TO and I can't afford it while on student-welfare...but did anyone else in the GTA go? Do you have pictures if you did?

As for the parade itself- I sadly didn't get to see much. I planned on being 2 hours early with my friends so we could get a good spot...but they showed up an hour and a half late then wanted to hang out with other people who've treated me poorly in the past. I left the group but was too uncomfortable with having to fight a crowd of people to see. I spent most of the time at the various booths. I did get to see this great group marching in support of those in Palestine, so huzzah for that!

How have other cities Pride Festivals been? Next year (when I can drink) I intend on going to a lot more than just the parades during the week.

However, something rather upsetting did happen at the parade. Me and my two friends Kevin (who I'm sort of dating, and had been dating for over a year before some drama happened there. LONG story) and Cameron were walking by the booths when a girl with a spank-paddle came up to us asking if we wanted spankings. We all denied, but here's what happened:

Girl: Spankings?
Cam: No thanks
Me: Sorry
Kev: No. Just no.
Girl: Oh? That's too bad *spanks Kevin on the bum*
Kev: No! *take paddle away and puts down on bench*

Holy shit, where do people get off invading space like that? No means no, even when you're feeling good about yourself, Girl. I find this is happening a lot more than I like around people who also identify as queer, when in groups. Does anyone else have experience with this sort of thing?

stevenandrewx. [23 Jun 2009|02:53am]

name: steven.
age: 18.
residence: new york.
orientation: gay.

my story: i pretty much spent my teen years locked inside of my room, and my own head. i didn't have many friends, and i didn't feel the need for them. i knew i was different from others, and i didn't know if it was all that okay. i heard so many issues on gay people, and how it was bad. i was so terrified i'd be bullied about my sexuality if anyone knew, and i couldn't get myself to tell anyone. i did tell my cousin when i was about 13, and that's pretty much what brought us closer. it took so many years, and my senior year i started opening up. people knew i was, but it wasn't open for discussion. during my senior year, everything changed. i gained more friends, more close bonds, and i am so happy. my best friend who i told i was gay to told me it was okay, and it didn't change anything. i started telling more and more people. i even told my crush, and after a few weeks of fighting and tears, he finally opened up and told me he liked me too. today we are still going strong and i couldn't  be happier. <3. anyway, my biggest 'coming out' was doing an 'all about myself' project for a class. i had to present it infront of the class, and i did it. people told me it was all good, and i was still the same steven they knew. i even wrote a paper about myself with that teacher, and he loved it. the teacher was so proud of me.
anyway, everyone pretty much knows, but i haven't told my parents, but the thing is.. my boyfriend always stays at my house, or i'm at his house, so it's a bit obvious. my father is always cracking jokes, and the other day even said "it's out of the bag, everyone knows" and he seemed perfectly fine with it. it's crazy, i didn't realize everyone would accept it. <3.
i'd love for some of you to add me, and share your coming out stories, or even some issues you're facing. (:

I hope this is ok to post. I love pics. I also posted this to my own journal (with a slightly different introduction, natch) and to a few other communities, so sorry if you get this 4394398439843899342 times on your F-list. But the pics are so cool I had to share. I culled these from various sources all across the internet.

Here are the pictures. Enjoy, and be proud.

In the face of everything evil
Regardless of what the courts decide on this whole gay marriage issue
Best thing WE all can do is keep our chins up, heads held high, and be grateful we are alive
A time will come when we will be victorious

Gay and lesbian rights are a hot topic right now, and surely we can pour in more news than what is currently happening. If you're in Arizona, Phoenix Pride 2009 begins on April 18th and ends the 19th, so.. fucking go!

Alert [16 Apr 2009|01:03pm]

[ mood | determined ]

A while ago Iowa passed legislation to make same sex marriage legal. Now the lawmakers that helped in that wonderful victory are being harassed by Right Wing Conservative Christian groups to pass Iowa's own Prop 8.


Every member of the GLBT community needs to make sure that another Prop 8 doesn't happen. The wonderful lawmakers that allowed such an outstanding victory for our rights need to be told that they did the right thing and that they have the support of the GLBT community.
