I Support Gay Rights

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 25,706 People

    I just asked my brother "What

    if I was gay?" He responded with "Then I would make our parents disown you." I think it was a joke, so I told him "I'm not freaking joking." (Slightly less nicely) He said "Okay, I wouldn't do anything. It's your choice." Honestly. Where does the kid get this stuff?! We aren't...

    Straight people fear gays.

    Hence marriage debated. Gays may be better at it. So religious people bark loud. And buy politicians. Then go back to more sins. Bet they wont agree. Lol.

    Being gay isn't a choice.

    But do you know what is a choice? Waking up everyday and claiming that someone else's love life affects yours.

    I wasn't going to write this story simply

    because it makes my heart hurt to do so, but following the events that happened to my gay nephew a few days ago, I feel like it's needed. My nephew (let's just call him Ash) is 9 years old, and a total sweetheart. He's always been a very happy child, until recently. A few days...

    Today, I got the biggest shock of my life My 50

    year old dad came into my room, and told me that since him and my mum broke up about 10 years ago, he's been to counselling, spoken to a load of people , and has realised that he is a gay man, and has been secretly seeing someone for the last 2 years. My dad, the father of 3...

    So this girl on Omegle told me she was a

    If your kid is LGBT and you just can't

    "understand" it then think about this: finding out you're "different" from everyone else, being told by countless people that god will not love or accept you is very, very hard. You aren't a failure as a parent if your kid is gay. You, however, are a pretty crappy parent if you...

    as everyone else. It's simply, and if you feel different then go perish.

    I saw this beautiful quote on Facebook

    today: Marriage is not about religion. Atheists marry. Marriage is not about procreation. The infertile marry. Marriage is about love. That's it. And that's beautiful.

    I myself am gay. But

    not only do I support gay rights but I support human rights. We should be able to live the way we want to and do whatever makes us happy. we're given the right to the pursuit of happiness so no matter what sexuality you are, you should be able to be happy.

    If your child is gay,

    it doesn't mean you failed as a parent. If you disown your child because they are gay, then you failed as a parent.

    how some people hate or don't like gays, lesbians, etc. It's so normal to see a straight person be like "Ew he's gay, what a f*ggot." and stuff like that but you never see a gay or lesbian go up to a straight person and be like "ew, he/she is straight." It's not right. If...

    Why are gay people still looked down upon?
