I am the girl kicked out of her home because I confided in my mother that I am a lesbian.

I am the prostitute working the streets because nobody 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 twenty-seven 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 have ever had. I wish they could adopt me.

I am one of the lucky ones, I guess. I survived the attack that left me in a coma for three weeks, and in another year I will probably be able to walk again.

I am not one of the lucky ones. I killed myself just weeks before graduating high school. It was simply too 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 getting the management 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 because I now live with another woman.

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

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

I am the father who has never hugged his son because I grew up afraid to show affection to other men.

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

I am the man who died when the paramedics stopped treating me as soon as they realized I was transsexual.

I am the person who feels guilty because I think I could be a much better person if I did not have to always deal with society hating me.

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

I am the person who is afraid of telling his loving Christian parents he loves another male.

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

I've read this a few times now (it's been posted by a lot of people on my flist) and it's both very truthful and very heart wrenching. It's sad to think that those kinds of things happen in the world.

sad world.. that's all true..
well.. I really don't know what to say but.. I'm actually fighting to find something that don't make me feel alone... It's difficult to walk in a society where if you say who you are they detest you.. and it's more difficult try to find the love.. I feel like this world isn't for me.. I don't find nothing.. and I lie .. I walk pretending that everything is ok.. pretending something I am not.. it's painful.. my family doesn't know who I am 'cause I don't want they suffer..

I'm so sorry for telling this.. I have a freaking storm of feelings.. I thought everything will be ok only with my friends.. but now that's not enough.. I need something, someone.. but in this place I live.. doesn't exist.. even just to have sex.. maybe I have not eyes open.. maybe I need to go out..
I guess.. a lot of gay people feel the same u__u

again.. sorry for this.. and sorry my english.. isn't my first language..

nice entry <3

Hmm, I don't think all countries are the same. In some, homosexuals can even legally marry. But I agree that a lot of them feel the same and have to hide, it's sad.

Your English is very good, don't worry. :3
