BeYOUtiful by meghan486 BeYOUtiful by meghan486
I want to spend the rest of my life being an advocate for LGBT rights. Because whether you're lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender, does that really make you a different person? No. But publicly admitting it, and being proud of who you are, does make you a stronger, happier person. And doesn't everyone deserve to be strong and happy?

I'll never stop supporting what I believe in. Love is love, and your sex or gender shouldn't be a factor in loving someone.

great image, came across it through the LGBT-on-DA group. i'm just not sure i agree with your statement that coming out is always a good thing!

I know coming out can be hard, especially if you're not financially dependant and there's a possibility that you could be disowned and lose your means of income or whatnot. But eventually everyone has to face who they are, and hopefully make them a happier person. :)

i agree, being comfortable, confident, and empowered within yourself is critical. but what i'm getting at is that coming out isn't always the same thing for everyone. take for example, coming out as gay, lesbian, bi, pan etc, when compared with coming out as trans, which is a completely different process (and very few people understand.) i appreciate the intention of your message, but i think the realities for many LGBT people are very complex and difficult to reduce.

I do agree with you. Coming out as Trans is a total different process. Coming out gives you the freedom to change things like your appearance, and so many other things that are hard to do without being questioned if you haven't come out yet. And that can be hard, and such a stressful time.
