**>GAY PRIDE EVERYONE!!!!!!

**>If you want to post your stories or info for me, please do so on my continuation deviation here: Gay Pride 2 This one has reached the character limit. More information will be added to Gay Pride 2, and please read it as well as this one.

**>If homosexuality is a sin against Nature,
Then heterosexuality is a crime against Humanity.

**>Support gay marriage.

**>If homosexuality is a sin, then so is love itself. (Lonewolfess)

**>God was the one who put gays and such on the world. He loves ALL of His creations therefore He cannot hate us. Hate is sin. (little-miss-anime)

**> In birth there's a fifty percent chance any individual will come out male or female. Why should I limit the person I chose to love to the outcome of a coin flip? (OpeeFomenom)

**>If gays were allowed to marry, the government would benefit a lot more. More money for them......

**>The bible does not say that homosexuality itself is a sin. What it says is that homosexual prostitution is a sin.

**>Back in the B.C. (hehe), Greeks supported homosexuality. Actually, it was considered not only normal, but almost required for a man to have a same-sex partner. Usually it was a boy of 15 to about 22 in a relationship with a man 23 or older. These were completely normal and looked upon as usual routine.

**> There have been many writings of royal kings, queens and others have homosexual relationships along with heterosexual relationships and being entirely accepted for it.

**>Until 324 A.D., homosexual marriages were common in Roman life until emperor Constintius II outlawed them.

**>On October 7, 1998 a boy named Matthew Shepard was in a bar in a town called Laramie, Wyoming. Matthew was 21. Two boys, Aaron McKinney and Russel Henderson, decided to pretend to be gay and lure him into their car. Matthew was very innocent and gullible for a person his age, so he trusted the men. McKinney and Henderson drove just outside of Laramie. Feeling they were safe, they suddenly turned on Matthew. They beat him and took his shoes and tied him to split-rail fence. Almost 18 hours later he was found by a cyclist who had just happened to turn down that road. The man mistook him for a scarecrow untill he saw Matthew's hair. Matthew was taken to the hospital, where he died on October 12, 1998. The attention to his murder was nation-wide. Though Matthew's death was a tragedy, it opened the world's eyes to the fact that hate crimes happen every day, and every town has people who hate.

**>Almost exactly four years later, on October 4, 2002, a seventeen year old girl named Gwen Araujo was at a party in Newark, California. Her supposed friends thought they knew her. She had had sexual relations with many of them. But one of the friends knew something the rest didn't. Paul Merel's girlfriend was at the party. She somehow checked Gwen's genitalia in the bathroom of the house, though the court account doesnt record how. She discovered that Gwen was, in fact, Eddie Araujo, a transgender. She told her boyfriend, Paul, who in turn told Jason Cazares, Mike Magidson, Jaron Nabors and  his younger brother, Jose Merel. They forcibly checked Gwen's genitalia, and after discovering this was true, became enraged. Mike Magidson began to choke her in the hallway.Other guests that had been there began to leave. Once everyone had left, three people began to assault Gwen Araujo. Jose Merel struck her over the head with a frying pan and again with a can of tomatoes, leaving a gash in her head which bled profusely. Jaron Nabors hit her with a barbell weight. Mike Magidson kneed her head into the living room wall. The blow was so forceful that her head caused a dent in the wall. Araujo was taken into the garage of the home, where she was strangled by a rope. (Stories conflict on whether she was strangled by Mike Magdison or Jaron Nabors). She was then hog-tied, wrapped in a blanket and put in the bed of Mike Magdison's pickup truck. They drove her body to a parkland in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada called Silver Fork and buried her in a shallow grave. Almost three weeks passed. Finally Jason Nabors slipped a word to a friend. The friend called the police, a Jason Nabors was arrested. The police were led to Gwen's grave on October 16, 2002. The rest of her assailants were charged for murder and hate crime.

**> In 1993, a young man named Pedro Zamora was on the 3rd season of MTV'sThe Real World. Pedro was an HIV positive homosexual. He was an immigrant from Cuba, and most of his family was still in Cuba. His mother had died when he was young. Looking for a new source of love, he had let himself be taken advantage of by older men. No one had educated him about AIDS. When he was 19, he tested positive for the HIV virus. But he decided to live with HIV. He was an AIDS educator who gave lectures to schools and businesses. He decided to go on the Real World to get a wider audience and prove that HIV positive people are just like everyone else. He did this. While on the TV show, he met a man named Sean Sasser. After a few dates, they fell in love. Both men were HIV positive, and both worked to raise awareness about AIDS, HIV and GLBT people. A few months later, Sean asked Pedro to marry him. Pedro accepted. Only a few years after they were married, Pedro fell ill. Though in the end, he did not make it, he had left a legacy of awareness behind. His friends became AIDS educators in Pedro's place. And they created new foundations for AIDS research and awareness. Pedro's legacy lives on in the graphic novel "Pedro and Me" by Judd Winick.

**> How many people know the real meaning of the word "fag?" Not many. Fag means "bundle of sticks." Why are gay men called fags? Because during the witch hunts and witch burnings, the people wouldn't just use wood to burn the accused "witches." They would also tie up accused gay men and lay them at the feet of the witches, upon the wood. They would then light the men on fire, signifying that gay men were even worse sinners than the "witches." Over half the men and women burned were not gay nor were they witches.

**> Almost no one knows where the term dyke came from. Most people think its those walls in Holland used to keep water back. Those are spelled dike. Dyke is actually the Roman goddess of Justice.

**> Usual we just hear the term 'GLBT,' but there are many more than that:
- Gay: rather self-explanitory. When a male has a sexual or amourous attraction to another male.
-Lesbian: also self-explanitory. When a female has a sexual or amourous attraction to another female
-Bisexual: a person who is emotional and physically attracted to members of any sex.
-Pansexual:A person who is attracted to people of all genders, but does not believe in a dichotomous sense of gender.
-Asexual: not attracted to anyone of any gender.
-Questioning: a person who is uncertain of their sexual orientation, and is giving thought or leaving it unsure.

**> Most of the time we hear the genders "male" and "female," but there are so many more:
-Transgender: those without a specific gender label.
-Transsexual: An individual with a gender identity that is opposite to that conventionally associated with his or her biological sex.
-Intersexed/Intersexual:  person who is born between (inter) sexes, having partially or fully developed pairs of female and male sex organs. Also the term 'hermaphrodite.'
-Androgyne: feeling sometimes male, sometimes female, and sometimes neither.
-Gender Outlaw: A person who defies traditional gender roles by refusing to be defined by conventional definitions of man and woman
- Gender Fluid:- a person who feels like they identify with both male and females, and can fluidly change between them.
-Neutrois:a person who feels as if they have no gender
- Female-to-Male: A transsexual person who is biologically female, but feels as though they are male. Often people who refer to themselves as female-to-male(FtM, F2M) are beginning to go through transition or have already been through transition.
- Male-to-Female: A transsexual person who is biologically male, but feels as though they are female. Often people who refer to themselves as male-to-female (MtF) are beginning to or have already gone through transition.
-Cross-dresser: Not exactly a gender, nor a sexual orientation. It is a person who enjoys recreationally dressing as the opposite sex. Sometimes this infatuation has some sort of sexual pleasure attached to it, sometimes it is just generally entertaining to the individual.

**>The Pentagon still has homosexuality listed as a mental disorder, and has no intention of changing it.

**> States who have legalized gay marriage: Vermont, Massachusetts, Maine, Iowa, New Hampshire, Connecticut and Washington D.C.
Countries: Norway, Belgium, Canada, South Africa, Sweden, Spain, Netherlands

**> On May 15, 2008, gay marriage was legalized in California. On November 4, 2008, Proposition 8 banned gay marriage. On May 9, Proposition 8 was upheld by the Supreme court.
Maine voted against same sex marriage in early November.
    
**>Homosexuality isn't a disease. Homophobia seems more like the disease to me.(Sctiive)

**> At almost every school, students who are gay/are believed to be gay are harassed more than overweight or fat students, and students with disabilities, combined.

**> Most schools do not cover sexual orientation in their anti-discrimination policies. Only nine states have anti-bullying laws that specifically address sexual orientation.

**> Think about how many times you hear the sentences "You fag." "You're such a fag." "That's so gay." "Yeah, it was so gay." Next time your in school, count how many times you hear this. THEN count how many people who say this are your friends.

**> Why is it so wrong to marry the same sex? Isn't it worse to marry your own cousin (incest is a sin in the bible as well) or a man fifty years to your twenty, or marry someone just for his or her money?

**> GLBT (gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender) youth make up over 30% of suicides each year.

**> every 5 hours and 48 minutes, a GLBT youth commits successful suicide

**> Every 14 minutes, a GLBT youth attempts suicide

**> Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness are not special rights. They are endowed to everyone and include marriage, too.

**>Many people don't realize how much of a financial problem gay couples have because they cannot be married. Insurance companies do not recognize them as couples. They have to get insurance for themselves, they cannot get it together. Thats a lot of money to pay.

**> Many kids are not out of the closet as gay because they are afraid of looks they will get in the hallways, names they will be called, etc. Why make their life scarier and more stressful than a regular teenager's life is?

**> STRAIGHT PEOPLE- TRY THIS. Imagine you have a deep dark secret. It can be anything, it doesn't matter. Now imagine that if you told people this secret you would be ridiculed, hated, looked at like you are a freak. Imagine how badly you want to tell someone your secret. Imagine your fear of a persons reaction if you tell them your secret. Imagine you tell someone the secret, but it leaks out and soon everyone knows. Imagine people whispering and pointing at you as you walk down the hall. Imagine people staring at you as if your a freak, as if there is something wrong with you. Imagine people throwing their lunches at you or spitting on you as you walk across the courtyard at lunch. Imagine people taunting you with names that hurt you like a bullet. Now open your eyes. Gays go through this every day. We don't have to imagine. For us, its reality.

I was told by my dean of students that I shouldn't give tours of my school while dressed in drag because "we don't want to give the impression that this is an everyday sort of thing". It made me so uncomfortable with being myself. But I answered back "What if this is someone's everyday sort of thing?" He was floored and almost sent me home for the day, threatened with dropping me from school for the hexter.
I gave the tour anyway and the woman we were giving a tour to ended up being sponsor of the Gay Straight Alliance (GSA) at a local high school. The dean of students never apologized.

I am the girl who was landed in counseling because she doesn't know who she is anymore, who desperately fears that the rumours will trickle down the years to her sister and her friends, and that her homophobic parents will somehow find out.

I am the girl dumped by the only person she has ever loved, and left with nothing but the ongoing stigma to remember her by.

I want to be the girl to make you see reason and give people like me the rights we deserve.}-Kurissyma

{I am a straight Christian who is 100% supportive of Gay Rights. I happily say as a fun joke to people "You're so gay" (when I know that they too, share my views) because we feel that it IS NOT an insult. I never ever thought as a child that being gay was wrong, nor did I get any message from God that it was wrong. I am straight... for now. But if I ever meet a girl whom I have a crush on then the fact that I'm straight will not stop my feelings, I will happily turn Bi for her. I think that world needs to stop, and listen to love. I know so many GLB couples (obviously not all at once) and their love is beautiful. I know so many straight couples who's love is also beautiful. I hope... I hope that the narrow minded people can open up their minds to LOVE. I hope that one day, there won't be a word for Gay etc... I want there to be an infinite amount of feelings and emotions for love.}- Renos-fangirl247

{I am the person who feels guilty because I think I could be a much better person if I didn't have to always deal with society hating me.} - cranberrymelon
{Cranberrymelon says: I am a person who knows that saying a girl isn't enough to describe what's inside.

I am the one who's parents think that her life would be a win-win if she was bisexual because then she could marry some rich guy and still 'screw around' with other girls.

I am not someone thinking that this is the best that I can be. I now know how much better things in my life can be, but mostly because I live in another state as my parents.

I am and

I am not.

I am the one who tells even others in her queer community that there is more than being bi, gay, or a lesbian.

{I'm a lesbian Wiccan, brought up in a straight, Christian family. I was taught to hate no one, that skin color doesn't matter, and that God loves everyone. I told my dad that I was lesbian and he was fine with it, and so was my mom. Most of my family and friends were happy that I was brave enough to come out, but there were a few. A few friends started bullying me, and some of my family started rejecting me. My aunt was the worst though; when she found out she yelled at me for almost an hour, then she denied me any rights to being near her house. She's a pure Christian.

After I left I was crying, because she loved me all of my past, told me she'd always be there for me, that no matter what I was always welcome with her. That no matter what I grew up to be, she'd cheer me on, and she just deserted me.

Now I'm dating a girl named Taylor who's amazing and I've moved on, but school is still hell.

Heck, a few of the people who used to harrass bookfairy on the bus even apologized and her /brother/ stood up for her once. Only thing that really hurt recently...I finally admitted it to thoughs nosy idiots in art that I was with a girl and straightened out the rumors. I dunno how it happened but apparently the news got down to my brother's grade (fifth) and since some of his friends know me, they started getting on his case. Then my parents, the ones who always told me not to care what others think, pretty much told me I was an embarressment and that I shouldn't "brodcast family issues". Family issues my foot...My parents and my bro are the only ones in my family that know, and now even my mom is trying to tell me I shouldn't "brodcast" it. Even though there's a pattern at my school. If you give the impression that you care what people think and deny it, they're gonna rag you about it. If you just say "Yeah i'm with her. What of it?"

I am a christian, and I'm sorry for all the people the church has put down on. I believe we are wrong to speak for God, I mean, who are we to do that? He speaks for himself, and it mentions in the Bible several times He loves everyone. It never says 'God loves everyone except homosexuals.' ._.
Christians are now driving people AWAY from the church because they are pushing their beliefs in people's faces. If you are shouting "GOD HATES FAGS" at people, they are not going to be all "oh, you're right sorry. I think I'll become a christian and be straight." NO. That will only piss people off. (not all the church is like this, this is just a small portion. there are actually some really nice religious people out there who believe in gay rights and stuff ^.^)

Well I'm not supportive of them but I don't them either. You make a really good point for all the religious people out there, some more people should think that way :)

People keep telling me
"God hates homos so go die!"

And I keep thinking

"If god hates homos so much then why did he make them? For amusement of people being hurt EVERY DAY???"
