I don't need/want more plants, but I totally just wanted to say that this is an incredible idea and you're marvelous for this <3.
I've always been a friend to the LBGT community-
In highschool, I was in the GSA (Gay-Straight Alliance), and participated on every Day of Silence that was held.
I had a friend who was homosexual and shunned by his mother for it. My dad, who is at times intolerably homophobic, took him in for about half a year, and my family thought of him as their son/brother.
I wear pins and bumper stickers and internet banners. I sign any and every petition for rights that I come across. I have zero tolerance for anyone that says "[something] is so gay."
Today, my best friend for life is gay, and a victim of sexual abuse- and he's done alot for both of those communities, including donation drives. My best friend in the city is bi. She'll never be able to tell her grandparents and father, and it was/is even more difficult for them because her fiance is in the Navy. But her mother, and I, and all her friends, support her and her fiance.
Myself, and my boyfriend, are unable to define our sexualities. We are simply open, and together we love and support each other by whatever that means <3.
I was inspired by my late cousin Sam, who was a champion for the underdogs. After a lot of fighting, he was the one to bring the first GSA to his highschool district. He did so much for human, gay, female, and political rights.
"Dear America, when you tell gay Americans that they can't serve their country openly, or marry the person that they love, you're telling that to kids, too. So don't be shocked, and wonder where all these bullies are coming from that are torturing young kids, and driving them to kill themselves because they're different. They learned it from watching you." - Sarah Silverman
