The Day of Silence

Journal Entry: Fri Apr 15, 2011, 8:44 AM
I am participating in the Day of Silence this year. For those of you who don't know what it is, it is a day to bring attention to those in the LGBTQ community who are being bullied because of their sexuality and/or gender identity. It is hard to stay silent for a few hours. Imagine hiding yourself and staying "silent" every day. Anyone can participate. It's not just LGBTQ people. If you want to know more/support (either in the day of silence or in general) go to some of these websites (I only know some. There are many others.)-

Day of Silence official website/organization: <<< the link is right here, for some reason it doesn't show up in white

NO H8 (against Prop 8): Banner

PFLAG (an organization helping families and friends understand more about the LGBTQ community and also talks about ways to come out):… <<<link right here, doesn't show up either

deviantArt Pride (a group dedicated to LGBTQ art, whether you are a part of it or a supporter; there are many other groups with this theme on dA, just this is the one that i'm a part of): dapride <<link right here to the right of the "#" sign

"It Gets Better" Project (a website with videos of people saying the message to LGBTQ people "No matter how alone you may feel at some point, you are not alone. There are supporters (both LGBTQ and not) everywhere. Hang in there. It gets better."): <<link right here

About the repeal of "don't ask, don't tell" (YAY! not that i want to go into the military, just it's good that it's been repealed):… <<link right here

There are many more. As I said, these are just the ones that I know off the top of my head :)

Art work and writing from various people around the site:

My Reflection     I've seen you before, as I'm sure you've seen me. I know who you are. You're the girl contemplating suicide. The one who gets called a dyke every day. You're insecure and your self-esteem doesn't exist. As much as you try to fit in people still hate you and you long for acceptance. You are terrified of losing everybody you love. You keep secrets. Nobody knows the price you pay to stay so thin. Nobody knows the cost of your love. You should be happy, but nobody knows that you go home in tears every day. Nobody knows that you always cry yourself to sleep. And for the short time that you're able to stay asleep, the nightmares haunt your dreams. You're scared. Life gets harder as the depression worsens. When I look at you I can see it in your eyes. You're not as strong as everybody thinks. You hide it well, but I know that you're wearing yourself out. You're exhausted. But you can't let her down. So you hide yourself and you keep your secrets, knowing that the LivingDeadLove13 <<username
Don't worry, come outSo i came out to my mom. Oh yeah, i really did. It happend last week. My mom went to Spain for a week. During that time I had a second date with a wonderful missie in another city. It was a secretly date, only my sis knew. After that I decided that next week (actually this week) I'm gonna tell.
My mom came home and I was just chatting with that girl. I was so excited and happy! I wanted to tell! And than, after midnight, I changed my mind and I wanted to tell immidiatelly. I asked my sis what she thought about that. She wasn't in but she supported me.
I felt the adrenaling running through my veins.
"Mom? I'd like to talk with you"
"Oh.. what happend?"
"Come on and sit down...
"Oh my god... what have you done?"
"Nothing. Just listen." I sat and held her hand.
I looked into her eyes.
"Do you love me?"
"Of course I do!"
"And will you always love me?"
"Of course I will! What happend?"
"Well... you know, you have been asking why I don't have a boyfriend..."
"So... well..."
"I know

'You Gotta Give Them Hope' by WickedPotter84 <<i made this :pride:
I Love A GirlI see her when I wake
I see her when I sleep
When she touches me
I sigh happily
Watch her body,
Do you see how she moves?
I want to feel her hair
Touch her, caress her...
I'm a girl.
And yes,
I love one too.

So... that's it. "What are you going to do to break the silence?"
