So I’m going to be flying down to Vegas on the 28th in the morning and back to Spokane in the evening on the 29th. I intend to come out to my second oldest brother, who is still a Christian, but more social justice oriented than most of the rest of the family. I’m hoping it goes well. After him I just have my two younger siblings, then I’ll come out to my parents. Once that’s over with, I’ll be coming out to everyone.
This is a really well done exploration behind some arguments about Abortion, I highly advise you watch it.
I sometimes check my ex pastor’s Facebook page for outlandish goodies, but today it was a mistake. I feel sick. There was so much homophobic and transphobic propaganda that he’s peddling to his followers, of which there’s a good amount.
They’re paranoid, delusional, bigoted, and think that they’re doing God’s work. The people he represents and leads genuinely make me feel unsafe.
I remixed/redid Farewell and nintendo'd the heck out of it.
So last night I had my graduation party after band practice and ended up staying late after everyone else took off, hanging out with the bassist and his wife and I got to tell them more of my experiences and I feel so lucky to have them. I’ve had supportive friends, but they’re genuinely invested in me, and they’re helping me to be able to picture a future where I’m not in the closet to anyone. I haven’t really been able to visualize that until now.
Also I’m dehydrated again fuck
I saw this posted by someone I considered to be a friend when I was still at my old church.
I’m upset. I’m upset that they don’t understand things because they think their world can’t encompass other people.
I’m upset that I have to pretend to be a Christian. I wish that these people would change but I don’t see that happening. I try to be a “light” on Facebook, because I might not have escaped if I didn’t have a light of my own.
It’s exhausting and I hate it.
@JessieGinger scratch that. I’m not ready to be out to the band. I’ve been working on changing this guy’s understanding of the whole LGBTQ shebang, but I’m still fucking terrified.
So the bassist in the “Christian” band that I’m in was at the pride fest setting up fireworks for the evening, and he spotted me with two of my friends. Thankfully I had my hoodie on, but it was unzipped. I’m pretty sure with all the context clues he’s going to piece everything together.
I’m freaking out a little. I’m not sure if I’m ready to be out to anyone in the band.
Found on a post by my ex pastor that said “Being gay is NOT an ethnic group, it’s a way of having sex.”
Glad to know that people being discriminated against because of homophobia/transphobia/xenophobia/racism don’t deserve any legal protections because some companies promote equality.
Anyway, I’m going to my first pride event today, so I’m super stoked for that. I was worried I’d be seen by someone who I don’t want to be out to, but now I don’t give a shit. Ugh.
(Closeted) Trans gal doing things. It is incredibly hard to stay hydrated.
