Coming Out on YouTube: Kevin Challender

with one comment

He finally admitted to himself that he was gay. It left him lonely and depressed.
“I felt like I would never, ever be in love,” Challender said.

He thought about suicide, and developed a stutter. He felt so awful and fearful in public restrooms, he’d cross the street to use a bathroom.

By his junior year, however, he was able to talk with friends about it, and they were supportive. He started to accept being gay and told his family.

Today as an 18-year-old senior, Challender has taken a bigger step, telling his story publicly in a video posted two weeks ago on YouTube as part of the national “It Gets Better” Project.

It gets better: I was a boy on a bridge

without comments

Dudes, you need to watch this. Great story from the It Gets Better Project.

“I climbed a bridge to jump off it–because I was gay. 28 years later, I want to say why I’m so glad I didn’t. It gets better.”

It Gets Better

without comments

I’m sure plenty of you have seen the news reports of the suicides in America this week.

Some of you may even have seen what Dan Savage has been up to with his “It Gets Better” project. It’s simple and brilliant.

He’s called on gays to tell their stories on YouTube to reassure gay teens that life does get better after school. It’s really taken off!

I know some of you are working on your own vids. I want links, people.

I’m also going to go through some of the videos and pick out some to blog.

To begin, I’ll include Michael Urie‘s video:

There will be more to come!

Cute soapy coming out scenes

I hate soaps, but I thought this storyline was cute. The mother’s acting is horrific.

Big Brother contestant comes out as bi

without comments

Obviously in any new situation it’s hard to come out — and harder for some than for others, depending on your temperament. It seems obvious she has no trouble with the world knowing — I’m sure she’s aware the cameras are running — , but it seems to be the immediate reaction of her peers that worries her the most. I think that’s pretty normal too.

Coming Out on YouTube: LHIED

I love You Tube coming out videos, and I think this one is especially cute. He gives some good advice too because he knows people are watching these videos who have questions of their own.


Also, best screenshot from it:

Another You Tube coming out story. There are loads of them there.

This one is particularly interesting (and a little bit sad) as he talks about a gay friend he trusted to tell when he was first coming out, but who then used that information against him until he finally told everyone anyway.

It does illustrate one argument for coming out very well — that when you’re closeted, you are at the mercy of others.  It also shows how the community can suck sometimes.

Great Moments in Coming Out: Meredith Baxter

without comments

It was only 6 months ago that we all found out that Elyse Keaton is a lesbian! Well… not Elyse, but the actress who played her.

Nonetheless… awesome!
