i can be a cheerleader for you

19 Oct

i seriously hate facebook. i recently read something somewhere (very helpful) that rated people’s satisfaction rates with certain things. i think facebook was right up there with the i.r.s. so….. yeah, it sucks and yet AND YET! i check it several times a day. gggggrrrrrrrr.  but tomorrow is purple day and thanks to facebook i know this and just wanted to pass it along that i’ll be wearing purple for those lovely 6 little boys who completed suicide. 6 little gay boys that are gone. gone forever and it’s such a shame. i recently attended a trevor project workshop which is a wonderful organization for lgbt kids who are in need of some support.  in fact they even offer trevor chat, which is an alternative to facebook- this to cut down on hate crimes and cyber bullying. (big sigh). the trevor project is hard at work to prevent lgbt teen suicide. and did you know that 1/3 of all lgb kids will attempt suicide? AND 1/2 that’s HALF of all transgender kids will attempt?  that is just fucking tragic. so i’m wearing purple. because it’s sad to lose a little one no matter what their sexuality. but i’m also a gay and it’s real sad to lose a little one that could have done a lot of good for my community.

for you guys and for all the others who completed this year who aren’t listed- you are all missed.
