Just a quick question. Is this project only focused on GBLTT issues?
Or, is it expanded to include all victims of any kind of detrimental bullying? Whether it's physical, emotional, mental or spiritual? (There's still too much bigotry surrounding various religions.)
Personally, I was a victim, who found himself being 'outed' in high school. I'm not gay. Wasn't then, and am not now. But I am secure in my sexuality, and openly flirt with men (under the right circumstances, and when I know it won't offend anyone.)
The point is, sometimes teens use homosexuality as a sword, cutting undesirables from their community, even if the accusations are false.
And the mental and emotional impacts these situations have on the victims.
If a gay man came to me and told me that it would get better and that I'd be able to live my life as an open homosexual in my adult years, it would've fallen on deaf ears. All because I'm not gay.
But, if someone came and told me that Metrosexualism would be the next hot trend, and that I was just on the leading edge of it, that would've helped. :P
Society will accept us for who we are, even if family and friends cannot.
