Many gay teens have crushes on their best friends. Some insist that if they could just manage to tell their friend "I'm gay" at the right moment, things might combust into kissing, sex and an amazing relationship. But the words rarely come, and if they do, it rarely ends up being a mutual feeling -- although we've all heard tales of such teenaged best friends-turned-lovers that make us all feel a slight tinge of envy. But they are truly the exception.

"The Radical Right Has Blood On Its Hands" screams a yellow flyer emblazoned with a bloody red palm print. "They're killing us," the flyer continues on the flip side, "The Radical Right tells us that we're abnormal and forces us to live our lives locked in the closet of fear and shame."
The flyer is promoting SQUIRM! a coalition of queer youth planning to protest this month at the GOP National Convention in San Diego. The youth will speak out at a special time from the protest area outside the convention. Queer youth "action teams" will also be posted near events around town that will be attended by the GOP delegates.

A new film documents the era and events that led to riots at the Stonewall bar in New York City in 1969. "Stonewall," the movie based in part on Martin Duberman's book of the same name, tells a powerful story about drag queens who refused to be hassled by police any longer, and fought back. The riots are considered the birth of the modern day gay and lesbian rights movement.
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.
Yes, my dear friends
Our favorite blonde who likes to stake things with bumpy foreheads will be leaving us. After this season is the demise of the hit show Buffy the Vampire Slayer. One more tv show with homosexuality in it gone....
Are YOU Republican?
My short story: And this actually kinda happened. I had drifted off and then realize the water was over my face.
It turns out that a new development arose when I least expected it.
There is a new guy in my life. I met him last night, we talked, and we're going to give things a try.
... and the other guy is going to have to deal this time.
No, I'm not doing this just to get back at him.
I'm not even sure if I want to get back at him.
But I think things are going to be a little more interesting now.
