‘It Gets Better’ for Gay Mormons, Too
Brigham Young University has been called one of the least LGBT-friendly campuses in the U.S.: according to the "It Gets Better" video produced by Brigham Young University students, 74 percent of LGBT students at BYU have considered suicide, and 24 percent have attempted suicide. The video was made by campus group Understanding Same-Gender Attraction (USGA), which is not officially recognized by the Mormon university. [source]
Lisa Ling, “The only thing that I would say is there have been a lot of hateful things that have come out of the evangelical community about gay people. And I hope that the gay people don’t adopt that strategy and become as judgmental and devolve into that kind of betrayal as the evangelicals have. I really hope we can take this to a different level and explore with a dialogue and find compassion and try and better define that God loves you and me and I’m not even religious, so let’s put it back out there to the religious community. So let’s ask them to really redefine or really reinterpret or interpret at all what God’s love should mean” - AfterEllen Interiew
Couldn’t agree more. This is so relevant for right now.
Chely Wright, "I felt like there were two Gods: the one they told me about in church that I should fear, and the one that knew my shit, the one that I believe told me not to lie. When I was on my knees and said, ‘Tell me what to do’, God said, ‘Tell the truth.’”
-Quote from an interview in Entertainment Weekly.
Kelly McGillis, the Top Gun actress, after two marriages reveals she’s gay, “I’m done with the man thing. I did that. I need to move on in life. That’s another part of being true to yourself that’s been a challenge for me. God is okay with you being gay. Life is a freaking journey and it’s about growing and changing and coming to terms with who and what you are and loving who you are.” -Ooh, anyone else spot her in the L Word? She was the closeted Army Colonel trying Tasha’s ‘Don’t Ask Don’t Tell’ case! Busted.

WHAT THE FRIGGIN’ NORA?
A spin-off of the web phenomena that is "Lesbians who look like Justin Bieber", this blog is pretty much exactly the opposite...
So, this blog started off as a joke - it’s nothing against the Bieb, just simply that not every lesbian looks like him… In fact, what happened was the more we searched for new posts, the more we discovered that there’s a lot of encouraging, inspiring & sexy stuff out there!
We’re just sharing what we buzz off. Here we have a celebration of the time we live in. It’s a sneaky peek into open closets from the past and the present. It’s also become a place to share triumphs of our community, the highs and lows of our generation (mostly the highs) and just generally brilliant and important stuff relating to all things gay.
If you have any questions, please ask. If you have any suggestions, please make them known. If you have any revelations, please reveal. If you want to share, please open up. You are amazing and this is for you.
