In the town I live in hate groups are becoming a big thing. The hate groups have been beating up kids who have darker skin. Yesterday they tagged the door where we have our GSA meetings. They put the letters WP (for white power) and a swastika next to it. Fellow students don't care about this and the school is doing almost nothing to deal with the matter at hand.

from what i understand, it really is a process, so take it at your own speed, and yes, come back here/to friends in person (when you can)/family/suport group as frequently as you need.  i admire your courage so far.

emiwright- If there is a PFLAG around your area they are a very good resource.

I am in 8th grade in a super homophobic small town, I wore a gay pride sweatband on my wrist yesterday to school. Some stranger walked up to me "You support gays?" I nodded. We knuckle punch. THERE IS ALWAYS HOPE.

I'm in the process as coming out as lesbian. I could really use some helpful comments. Thanks.

I know that it shouldn't affect me, but there is such venomous homophobia on YouTube, it's insane. It's really bothering me, I wish I could fix it but I know I can't... sigh...

Queer the night is a anti transphobia and homophobia march. (and it was great.)
