The faces of HOMOPHOBIA

I am the girl who got kicked out of her home because i confided in my mother that i'm a lesbian.

I am they boy who never finished high school, because I got called a fag every day.

I am the prostitute working the streets because no one will hire a transsexual woman.

I am the sister who holds her gay brother tight through the painful, tear filled nights.

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 27 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've ever known. I wish they could adopt me.

I am not one of the lucky ones.

I killed myself two weeks before graduating high school. It was just to 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 management being 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 now that I live with another woman.

I am the domestic violence survivor who found the support system grow suddenly cold and distant, once they found out my abusive partner is a woman.

I am the domestic survivor who has no support system to turn to because I am male.

I am the father who never hugged his son because I grew up afraid to show affection to another man.

I am the home-ec. teacher who always wanted to be a gym-teacher until someone told me only lesbians do that.

I am the woman who died when the EMT's stopped treating me as soon as they realized I was a transsexual.

I am the person who feels guilty because I think I could be a much better person if I didn't have to deal with society hating me.

I am the man who stopped attending church, not because I didn't believe, but because they closed their doors to "my kind".

I am the person who has to hide what the world needs most, love.

I am the person ashamed to tell my friends that I'm a lesbian, because they constantly make fun of them.

I am the girl who hides her feelings from her family, for she knows that her parents wouldn't love her anymore if they knew she was a lesbian.

I am the boy, tied to a fence beaten to a bloody pulp and left to die because two straight men wanted to "teach me a lesson".

Excuse Me While I Vent A Little...

This whole Bush administration and everything associated with it needs to go.

I can't speak for the rest of society, But I miss the Clinton years... He was by far the best President I've seen in my life time and hopefully our next President will continue where Mr. Clinton left off and is able to fix all the mayhem, destruction, confusion, lies and lives that Bush and his administration single handedly destroyed.

Never in history has one President been associated with some much destruction... I urge "EVERYONE" able to vote to do so, So that this type of leadership is never repeated... Bush's two terms has left a few nations destroyed, killed and still killing millions, practically demolished our economy, never gave support to people of color (or the minority's as they like to refer to anyone not of Caucasian orgin) and bascically turned his back on the low and middle income people... This is why it's so important to vote (unless your in Florida... and we all know there voting policies).

Alot of us complain and gripe and then do nothing, we don't show up and show support for causes but we will be up 8am in the morning on a wednesday to get that Macy's sale, we don't go to "free" forums and rallys so our voices can be heard and respected, but we will pay 200 dollars for a rap concert, we don't have money to donate to good causes but we sure found it in our budgets to buy that new Prada bag... Get my point?

Awhile ago I was told "The only power people have over you is the power you give them". I wonder sometimes what our ancestors would think of the society we've become... They fought so hard to be free, independant and productive in their own lives and look what we've become, a society of selfishness and disconnect.

The system is set up to create failure... The welfare system is set up to keep single mother households fatherless, the prison system is meant to destroy (felons that have served their time are denied their right to vote), now I don't know about you but I feel If you served your time why are you still being punised well after your releashed? Just a question...

Thank you for spending this time with me and lending a ear (eye) while I VENT!

Did You Miss Me!!!

Hello All, I know I've been gone for a few weeks, unfortunately it's been all work and very little play (Lord knows I need a short vacation from life, lol).
Well let me bring you up to date some on somethings as to why I've been so busy... My fashion designs are taking off, my online magazine has also caught the eye of some entertainment personalities, I've been trying to put the final touches on my website and i'm in the process of creating some new projects as well as still trying to hold it down at GMHC... So forgive me when I'm missing in action.
So with that being said, I thought I would share a joke that was sent to me by a very dear friend, when we read it we had to laugh at the fact that although funny, it had some truth to it, as do many jokes...

A man in a hot air balloon realized he was lost. He reduced altitude and spotted a woman below, He descended a bit more and shouted...
"Excuse me, can you help me? I promised a friend I would meet him an hour ago but I don't know where I am."
The woman below replied, "You're in a hot air balloon hovering approximately 30 feet above the ground. You're between 40 and 41 degrees north latitude and between 59 and 60 degrees west longitude."
"You must be in Information Technology," said the balloonist.
"I am," replied the woman, "how did you know?"
"Well," answered the balloonist, "everything you told me is probably technically correct, but I've no idea what to make of your information and the fact is, I'm still lost. Frankly, you've not been much help at all! If anything, you've delayed my trip."
The woman below responded, "You must be in Management."
"I am," replied the balloonist, "but how did you know?"
"Well," said the woman, "you don't know where you are or where you're going. You have risen to where you are, due to a large quantity of hot air. You made a promise, which you've no idea how to keep, and you expect people beneath you to solve your problems. The fact is you are in exactly the same position you were in before we met, but now, somehow, it's my f#%king fault."
