RIP Queerty


Free of an Agenda. Except That Gay One. That is my motto. I am free of an agenda, except that gay one, no matter how many people take exception to the so called gay agenda. Sorry, straight people. This one is for us. We lost a blog that didn’t censor, that didn’t mind being un PC, that didn’t mind acknowledging the fact that no matter how gay friendly you are, you will never be completely and fully qualified to tell the truth of a people you do not belong to. Yes, they often offended some people. But they didn’t care. We listen to the straight agenda via mainstream media on a daily basis. You can listen to ours now. There is now, officially, no blog that is completely free of an agenda, except that gay one, because they all are now littered with the straight perspective. There is nothing wrong with that, but, at the end of the day, we went to Queerty to vent, to rant, to talk to people who faced a world that just didn’t get it  on a daily basis. We need a voice, and I hope to be that, one day, but right now I am not. Godspeed to opening up a new blog similar to Queerty. We definitely need it.

Yes, I Get Bullied, Too.


I hesitated to post this here, because I never wanted to make this blog about me. But, it is certainly relevant. Last week, I was bullied at school. Students called me a ‘carpet muncher’ in the student center, and then proceeded to have a loud conversation behind me the next day about how being gay is a sin. To top it all off, anti gay religious people set up camp on campus, handing out pamphlets and testimonials in the student center day before yesterday. All of these things make me feel so unwelcome and unappreciated on my own college campus.

Now, the good news is that it is being taken care of. I have my advisor and a member of the school administration in my corner, and they do not condone homophobia. They are also working toward implementing tolerance and diversity policies, and equipping the staff to deal with anti gay bullying. They were simply ignorant of how big an issue this really is.

This is an especially appropriate post as tomorrow is the Day of Silence, an effort to bring attention to LGBT bullying in schools and workplaces around the nation. Please participate and spread the word.

THIS is what it’s all about….


Everyone Needs to REALLY look, hear and feel this.  Think about it…we ALL have SOMETHING that others don’t like, others don’t agree with, others won’t look past their faces…YET.  One day, one day.

This is the message that is starting to creep into mainstream…little by little.

No…Ya probably WON’T see this on VH1, but it’s out there.  And the message is clear!

NO MORE LABELS!  Bury them.  They hurt, they sadden, they kill.
