As the late Kurt Cobain used to sing on-stage in Smells Like Teen Spirit: "Our little tribe has always been and always will until the end."
Author Linnea Due, 47, agrees with Cobain, but says considering the strides and volume of books and information written for the gay community, youth have been snubbed in those advances.

Unlike many teens, Dan Martin never felt he was the only gay teen in his town or high school. "My logic told me there's got to be others," he says. "I'm not that unique."
He just didn't know how to find others, and was afraid of them finding him. So, he spent hours alone in his bedroom talking to people through his computer.

Each school year marks a time of change, from having new teachers and classes to new demands and expectations. For queer and questioning students, it can also mean debating whether or not you will tell anyone about your sexuality this semester.
But deciding to come out, by either telling one special friend or the entire student body, is a major step.
So I've been gone for quite some time, and as the last private message indicates, it's been almost 3 months.
I shall update you all rather quickly as long updates are rather dull and uneccesary: I've graduated high school, I'm going to a college I do not want to attend, I am reunited with my best friend who I stopped talking to, I am reading a shorter finnegans wake, I am starting to watch seinfeld, listening to the velvet underground. hating life as. Usual.
I posted the wrong link to the girl playing the drum solo, but I thought the one I posted was good too : )
I feel SO stupid now!
Here's the correct link:
So I finally decided to watch the new My Little Pony cartoon. It's pretty neat, can't believe there's this huge fandom and all these conventions the fans setup. I think it'd be sort of fun to go to something like that, it's one hell of a pop culture phenomena. Anyway, crazy things, crazy things that one tries to parse.
I saw this video on YouTube and had to share it. Girls get looked down on for playing the drums but I think she did a good job. She's influenced by one of my favorites, Neil Peart from Rush, not a bad thing.
Plus, she's got a sense of humor!
Omg so yea the title explains it all. But don't freak out y'all no humans were harmed. So I've taken up archery as a stress reliever and it's really been working. I've used the old shed in my back yard as a target and lets just say it sorta lost a door lol (I was real mad that day) but anyways if you see where my house is you'd see huge fields to the left and in the back and we usually see a lot of little creatures in our yard like snakes,opossum, and anything else that wanders in but my dog usually takes care of them because they all come in through the back yard.
Hi Oasisland! My name's Joey and I'm 13, going to be 14 this fall. This is my first time writing on here but I'm been a steady follower of this site since I was 10. I've been wanting to write on here for a really long time, but I didn't think I would get any kind of real acceptance being on here when I was younger. And I'm FAR from being what the gay community would consider an ideal gay teen.
Girls, what's my weakness?
