danisoledad-deactivated20100830 asked: (So, I thought if I'd tell anyone this, it would definitely be you!)

I came out to my mom today. It was a very of-the-moment thing for me to do. We were in the parking lot of Bally's Total Fitness (haha). The first thing she said was, "You're just confused." (I'm bi.) It hurt. But then after we worked out (I guess after she had time to take it in), she seemed to have a better attitude towards it. She just wants me to be happy. I feel very lucky and very blessed that she accepts me for who I am completely. She is my best friend in the world and I love her a lot, so it would have completely destroyed me had she not been supportive. That's it. (:

I love your layout, btw! :D

Thank you ^^

I’m so happy for you for coming out and I’m enthralled that she accepts you for who you are!! :D Thanks for sharing this here :] It sure gives me hope, so I hope it does for others as well <3

My boyfriend(Adam) and I(Cameron) have been together for 2 years now. Every day has been the most beautiful experience of my life. Sure we have had some turns in personality, but who hasn&#8217;t?! Anyway, there are a few things I would think you would like to hear. One is that Adam is a born and raised Muslim. Now to most people who aren&#8217;t educated (I sure wasn&#8217;t), being a homosexual in that religion is strictly forbidden and is &#8220;cured&#8221; with death. As a result, I can never attend his church when we get married, or even tell his church members that we are together. His parents are completely fine with him and I. This is something I have had to accept, and I am more than happy to be with him. Another thing is that we are planning on getting married. Having children. And of course live together till we are old. I love him with all my heart. He is my love.
I think that&#8217;s wonderful that you two can survive the struggle of religion&#8217;s view on homosexuality. I&#8217;m really glad though that you&#8217;re both accepted by his family and have your lives planned out together! I wish you both the best of luck :] &lt;3

wendyyyyyy:

Recently I started a silent protest called ‘Day of Silence’. This image was the logo I created for the event. Basically, the people who were doing it had to be completely vocally silent for 24 hours, and when people asked why they’d show them a badge saying they were doing the silence in aid of homophobia awareness (and the prevention of homophobia hopefully!). It was hyped up and talked about beforehand, and several of the schools (including my own) weren’t supportive of it so it became guerilla movement and I’m still not sure why.
Even if you don’t believe equal marriage is right or wish to know anything about gay/lesbian adoption rights it is unarguable that homophobia is a basic form of discrimination and has to be fought and stopped globally.
I’m asking you beautiful, quirky and intelligent people on tumblr to show your tumblove and reblog this and let people know about this. Show that you support that love is emotional and not in any way defined, specified or rational.

Day of Silence is a really fun April event. You can learn more about it here.

i wish more than anything that i could submit a picture of my girlfriend and me to your site. she makes me so incredibly happy and i wish everybody in the world could see how beautiful she is. the only problem is that she’s in the navy, so until she’s separated from the service or the laws change, i have to keep all of our adorable “coupley” pictures under wraps and be her “best friend” in front of anyone she works with or anybody that could jeopardize her career if they knew.

she’s worth it, though. i know things will get better- whether or not Don’t Ask Don’t Tell is repealed… i can wait. 

That’s so sweet and sad :[ <3 So much luck to you both. I know you can get through it! Thank you for sharing your story with us!

This is my first/current boyfriend Joey (he’s on the left, I’m on the right). We’ve been friends for about a month, but made our relationship official two days ago. I had pretty much given up on finding a guy before meeting him.

Congratulations on finding someone! :] Thank you for submitting ^^ <3

I’m so afraid that my girlfriend and I are going to lose everyone close to us when we come out. But I love her with everything in me, so I hope I’m enough for her. All I want is for us to be happy.

I hope everything works out for you two <3 Thanks for sharing your story!

Pansexuality

So been doing soul searching and I was open to what I am which was to me bisexual cause I felt I into both sex. So I feel pansexuality is a good way to really clear it up. I don’t like when people pretend to be something to be cool or anything. I like both men and women. I like the person for who they are regardless of sex, beliefs or gender :)

I’m glad you’ve found a label that fits you ^^ Thanks for sharing! <3

Day 28 - Write a letter to someone. It can be a coming out letter or a letter regarding how you hate their homophobia or whatnot. You don’t have to send it.

Dear my boyfriend, 

I’m not going to tag this with your name or even write it down here because I do not want you to find this. If you do, you can either keep reading and we’ll fight, or open a new tab and forget you saw this. I know you’ve heard it all before anyway. 

I do not want your religious views impacting my future. I’d love to marry you, but by chance that we don’t, (which is very likely), I might marry a woman. I want the freedom to legally marry her, adopt with her, raise kids with her, and care for her the rest of her life until I am allowed to see her on her death bed. 

Your discrimination against the LGBT community should be spat on. As a Catholic, you don’t hate LGBT people just because of who they are, but what kind of love is it to deny them the sacrament of marriage? As far as sacraments go and receiving God’s grace through them, you have Baptism, First Holy Communion, Confirmation and the next one is either Marriage or Holy Orders. Well guess what? Most people aren’t Catholic and will not go into Holy Orders. Why can’t their marriages be blessed? Two atheists can get married legally and civilly with no talk of God and get all the legal benefits of it. Why aren’t you trying to stop this? Why so adamant about gays getting married? 

You anger me so much.

- Your girlfriend
