On the Grammys…

I can’t help but remember what it was like to be so confused and scared that I was GAY and then seeing a really dumb TV show (The O.C.) with the most stereotypical bisexual storyline…and you know? It really helped me. AND I lived 27 years of my life between California, Massachusetts, and New York City. I can’t imagine what it must be like to be some scared religious kid with a parent railing against “homosexuals!” and having never met anyone who is LGBTQI and OUT.

I know it feels right to bash pop culture for its 99.9% idiocy rate (but not Katy Perry), but sometimes it’s the only lifeline to the far reaches of our society that those of us who got out can sometimes forget still exists.
