The Lexington High Schools GSA is holding its annual Halloween dance this Friday. Details:
When: 7-10, Friday, October 28
Where: Lexington High School, 251 Waltham St., Lexington, MA
How much: $5 suggested donation (due to wicked high security and rental costs)
Wear a costume or not, but bring friends! Last year we had about 150 people, and it's always a really good time.
For more info, please email our advisor at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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 didn’t 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 has to hide what this world needs most, love.

Hey all you cats and kittens-
This is my firs tpost, and I'm still on the watchers list, and don't know how to change that exactly... anyway, I would like to let you all know the good news that I received yesterday! Well, technically two days ago, becuase it's after midnight... So, I suppose you all know what GLSEN is. Gay Lesbian Straight Education Network? Well, tehy have this thing called the Jump-Start Leadership Team. Well, I applied, and got in! So, I'm very excited. Right, just figured I'd let you know.
this is bobbie, and you're probably tired of me posting boston youth pride related things, especially because boston youth pride already happened, but this is more a bobbie related thing that happens to have to do with yp.
ok, so i was on the youth committee directing youth pride, and at one point i was standing on charles street directing vendors into the boston common, and two cars from safer homes worcester came in. there was this really cute girl with a tongue ring and a tan shirt and a black hat driving the second car, and she was wicked cool, and i saw her later too, waiting for the butchies but i lost her when everyone went up on stage with the butchies and i didn't even get her name, because i'm a giant wuss and didn't ask her when i had the chance, even though everyone was telling me to. so if anyone reads this and somehow knows who she is...
i know it's a long shot and i'm a loser to do this on LJ but i can't think of another way.
so who knows the cute girl with the tongue ring from safer homes worcester?!?
I'm Kia, I go to Tri-C Metro campus in Cleveland and Jared knows me even if he doesn't think so, he knows me...Anyway I have been trying to get a GSA started here so far it has been hard for me because I just don't have the time for it. No matter what happens with it I still want to be a part of it. I have a lot of info from the president that presided last year. He is a very good friend of mine and has since transfered to another college but left me a few things he had. So if anyone is interest please notify me. I do know of quite a few others who are also interested.
hiyas! my name's niamee. i'm a 16 year old bi male. i belong to a gsa in chicopee comprehensive high school. i joined there 2 weeks ago. i like it a lot. lots of fun there. nice to see a community like this around lj. well, laters to all. ^_^
Hey guys! This is an announcement from me (Eva) to you (everybody). The Lexington High School GSA is having a Halloween dance, and here are the details:
When: Friday October 29th, 7-10:30 pm
Where: Commons II, Lexington High School. 251 Waltham St. Lexington, MA 02421. I can give directions to anyone who needs them.
What: A Halloween dance! Be you gay, straight, bisexual, questioning, transgender, intersex, noncommittal or anything else, please please come cause it'll be amazing! Costumes are encouraged seeing as it is a Halloween dance!! I'll be wearing one :-D And we'll have a great DJ and awesome decorations and yummy snacks, as well.
How much? Usually we wouldnt charge anything for a GSA dance but we found out a little late last year that we have to pay not only for rental fees but also for the janitorial fees, which is new. So we were way in debt at last year's dance, and this year we don't want that problem. Fortunately you don't have to ask your parents for money though-- it's only $3! AND if you come appropriately Halloween-spirited (in a costume), you can get in for $2!!!
Why? Because it's gonna be a BLAST-- come, bring your friends, bring their friends (just dont bring their ex-girlfriend's mom's neighbor... that could be frickin awkward.). Last year's dance was a HUGE success and I really want this one to be too! Come on guys, we want to see this be amazing!
If you're interested but think you'll forget about it cause its nearly two months away, just email me back and I'll send you a reminder email a week or two before the dance. If you have any questions please contact me at email@example.com or 781 861 9568 . I also have AOL Instant Messenger with the screenname xxsaberchicaxx.
Email it, copy it into your livejournal/xanga/deadjournal/whatever. Spread the word! And please contact me with any questions so I feel special.
