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.
Listen to me rant on about the three love interests in my life. My boyfriend, my ex, and my best friend. And I can't decide what to do. So read it, and make your choice. Then tell me!

Today I visted my Dad. I usually refer to him as Captain Asshole. I had supper at his house, spent some time, talked ans stuff.
As he was getting ready to drive me home, putting his shoes on in the porth, we were talking about "appropriation" of office supplies. and he said jokeingly about stealing

I knew the line right off that bat. but I was haveing a mind blank, and couldn't name the song. Its a line from one of my favorite songs. one of his too he said.
Today's Dr Phil was about a kid who went to school in my town, Coweta, Oklahoma. They actually showed the high school. What I find really odd is that I don't remember much in the way of typical bullying...alot of name calling and stuff, but very little typical bullying.
I did not do well on my math test! Well, the first part anyway. I just didn't have time, which is weird, because I always finish her tests, but this time, not so much! Oh well, I have massive part two tomorrow, and I'll study my ass off for it! I'm getting a bit psyched for the two plays I'm going to be writing/acting in! Gah! Good ideas and fun people are good! And perhaps it'll look good on my college apps...
Speaking of that, do any of you have any sort of relation to Loyola of Chicago? I'm seriously looking there (it's the only sort of school I really like in my restrictions set by parents), and have heard really mixed reactions about it.
