It Gets Better!

I wish our society was at a point where I could look at my bio dad—who was gay, but in the closet—and tell him: Look at all of these people who support who you are, Dad. But things weren't like that for him, growing up as a gay man in the 60s and 70s. He was closeted his entire life to most everyone that knew him, other than the men he was involved with.

The reason I say this is because I struggled as a young girl with my own sexuality, but in a different way: I was attracted to men, but I was also attracted to women. It wasn't until college that I was able to admit my bisexuality, and even then, most people I know don't know that I'm bi.

But I don't have the same struggle that so many LGBT kids do. And that is why this project—The Trevor Project—is so important.

If you know someone struggling with their sexuality, being bullied for the sexuality, or just struggling with life in general, direct them to this YouTube channel; the It Gets Better channel. It is full of support from people who have "been there" for those trying to get past the negative crap and just live their happy, gay little lives.

Please go to this page and support it by watching the videos. Many had me in tears, and laughter, sometimes both at once. It is a big ol' hug for your heart.

Update: Here's Tim Gun, whom I can't help but love.


  1. Thanks for this. I've had similar struggles with my sexuality. I'm married (to a man, whom I adore). I have a relatively straight lifestyle. But I also like women.

    The only person in the world who knows that I'm bi is my husband (and also maybe the women we, as a couple, have played with).

    It's totally hypocritical of me... I believe that everyone should be allowed to be who they are. But at the same time, I haven't come out because I don't want to "rock the boat" when it comes to my more conservative friends and relatives.


  2. Pea, thanks for sharing, love. I think there are MANY more women just like you and I that feel the same way. More on this soon!


Spit it, betch!
