In case you are wondering why we need to “come out”? Why we need to talk about it? Why we have to flaunt it in your face?
Here is the reason: there have been at least 6 gay children (that I know of) who have taken their own life since school started this year. In addition, in the last week there have been 2 more teen suicides right here in Marin County!
Last night I stumbled upon the It Gets Better campaign by the Trevor Project on YouTube.
I just wanted to say thank you to The Trevor Project and all those brave people who participated in telling their own stories.
It does get better! If you are straight, gay or anything in between and feeling alone or hopeless right now please ask for help. It does get better.

Also, wanted to thank Ellen DeGeneres for speaking out.
