Thomas Jean is a man with a mission, or was one anyway. Until recently, the 17-year-old Killeen, Texas resident was involved in just a few gay community and student groups.
He was a member and served in various positions in these different groups: The Gay Lesbian Alliance of Central Texas, P-FLAG Waco, P-FLAG Austin, Out Youth Austin, Houston Area Teen Coalition of Homosexuals, The Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual Young Adults of Dallas, the Teen Project of Forth Worth, Respect All Youth of Dallas, and the Killeen High School Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual Student Union.

Major donor to many gay and non-gay organizations, all in the name of the queer community, not to mention founder of one of the most successful companies in recent memory, Tim Gill has been of great interest to me for many years. It has been an honor to speak with him in person, as well as electronically, the way in which most of this interview was conducted. Tim has been a major guiding force for many queer youth in and around Denver, Colorado and has served quite well as a role model for a long time. He has donated well over $4 million to various gay and lesbian causes over the past several years.

Jake Hein's life changed when his English teacher persisted in asking why he couldn't attend a forensics meet. He had told her he had another commitment, but after additional prodding told her he was attending a meeting for gay teens trying to start a local support group. dent, who lives outside Eau Claire, Wis., says the teacher shouldn't have been too shocked. During a recent meeting with the principal, Hein had told the principal he was gay.
Lol...I have "Tasha L/S Rachael" on my hand and "You're a naugthy girl. Go to my room." on my other. Chris asked why I had Rachael on my hand, and I said that was my g/f's name, and he went "You're a lesbian?" He said it out loud, and I laughed. I told him I was bisexual, and he asked if he could watch me and my girlfriend, lol...
Jonathan was feeling on me yesterday in tutoring, hehe..
Me and Danielle were making fun of Kenny all day. (What is surpising is we were enemies like a month ago.)
I guess this is the start of my weblog. The reason I started here is because this seems to be the perfect place where I can actually write truthfully, without having to cover up the fact that I'm gay/bi/straight-curious, whatever the hell I am. As you can see I don't even know. I plan on updating often so stop by once in a while to see what I have to say.
This will be my first post here; I don
I do not like being sick. It is the opposite of fun. And I missed 3 quizes and a lab today, all of which I will have to make up tomorrow, since it is the last day of the quarter. That is, if I attend class tomorrow. And I broke my thermometer on my couch, and cleaning up the mercury was a bitch.
And now, of course, I'm terrified that I will die from the highly toxic vapors, which I probably won't, but I have leanings towards hypochondria.
But I'm a sadistic little bitch and the three of us are watching the wipe-out olympics from the window.
...but I'm organizing the Day of Silence at my school...
Coming out is like taking a journey across the desert. I didn't come up with that, but it's the best image of coming out that I've ever encountered.
That's why Oasis is such a great name for this site. That's also why my name is Desert13. Well, well, well...
I used to go to sleep hoping for lucid dreams - I wanted to be able to act out what it would be like to come out, especially to Mom and Dad. Well, I never had that dream, but when I did come out to them the day after Christmas it was like a dream. The room was spinning.
