Thanks for taking the time to read this letter. As fellow YouTubers, we have much respect for others who put so much hard work into building their channel. It’s not easy, and you should be proud! That said, we’ve noticed that in your success, there has been a lack of…
What a hit. What a game. What a win.
This sign is in my doctors office above the scale and I really love it. It actually made me feel a lot better after reading it
I want to take a moment to tell you about my dad.
His name is Pete, and he is about 5’7 and very, very Italian.
He has accepted me for who I am since I arrived on this planet, and loves me so fiercely that just thinking about it can make me burst into tears.
Yesterday, he sent out an email (pictured above) to all of his friends and family, declaring that love and support by telling them all about the work Dannielle and I do, and asking them to pre-order our book, This is a Book for Parents of Gay Kids.
His words, as you might imagine, made me cry. I had no idea he even knew what LGBTQ stands for, you guys. Ugh. I am going to cry again.
I am who I am today in large part because of my dad’s support, his strength in knowing that love is more important than anything, his ability to stand by my mom as she worked through her own fears about my sexuality, and so, so much more. His support allowed me to love myself, and that strength, in turn, enables me to do the work I do today - it is one of the main things that gave me the ability to write this book in the first place.
Our parents are critical to our understanding of the world and of ourselves, and I speak to so many of you each day who have parents that, like my mom once was, are hurting and confused and struggling and don’t know how to let you love yourselves the way you deserve. I know that, with this book, we have created something that can help parents understand, support, and love their kids just like my dad understands, supports, and loves his daughter.
It would mean the world to me if you could share our book with your friends and family and anyone else you think might benefit from its existence. It matters more than I think any of us could ever individually know.
Every single book that is pre-ordered before September 9th is matched by our publisher with a donated book to a local PFLAG Chapter. Parents who desperately need information, guidance, and support attend those PFLAG meetings all over the country — I want this in their hands as soon as possible.
PS: The top picture is me and my dad a few years ago — he is wearing an everyoneisgay.com bracelet. He has never taken it off. *runs to the corner to cry some more*
I actually had to hold back tears man, woah idk why it hit me the way it dis
why is this so hard
I have bronchitis. Thanks to the ACA, I was able to get medicine for $0. #ThanksObama
that came from taxes I paid.
Well, let my know how much I owe you and I’ll drop a few pennies in the mail. War comes from taxes you paid, and I personally dislike the amount I pay going for that… Maybe we should check “yes” or “no” on our 1040 forms this year for allocation of tax dollars.
I’m sorry you think I’m lying, but I’m not. I qualified for the Medicaid expansion under the ACA, which is partially funded through taxpayer revenue. I don’t think the IRS mailed you a letter saying, “Nah nah nah nah naaaaaaah! This year’s tax dollars went to pay for medicine for poor people mwahahaha!” Who knows? Maybe YOUR portion of tax dollars went to a Hellfire missile that took out a village in Afghanistan. Ooh, how exciting for you!
Comfort yourself with that thought as I use my inhaler, which I would not have been able to afford without the ACA.
what the fuck is wrong with Americans who aren’t on board with free healthcare. I’m Canadian and I don’t care that I pay extra taxes so a little boy in Alberta can have open heart surgery, or an elderly man in Nova Scotia can get the heart medication he desperately needs. It’s called taking care of your people. I’m glad I pay so that people can have a good quality of life. It’s called being a decent fucking human being.
This. For the last comment.
I don’t think we take enough time to appreciate the periods in our life when our noses aren’t runny. Is your nose runny right now? No? Think about that. Honestly reflect on it. Enjoy this era of peace. There are dark times on the horizon
made me laugh
im hungrier than the neopet i neglected for 9 years
The world is weird, man. Weird and kinda beautiful.
Suddenly you’re 21 and you’re screaming along in your car to all the songs you used to listen to when you were sad in middle school and everything is different but everything is good
