ABC: Anti-Bullying Coalition is one of my personal favorites. That's because bullying is a subject that's very critical to me. In their own words:
They've got the right message. Their work is helping many people.
I recently did an entry on Charity Smith and her brilliant creation, Project: OUT. This is a project that is helping so many LGBT people, young and not-so-young, with their coming out process. For those who don't already know, the coming out process can be quite traumatic. We've lost too many teens to traumatic coming out processes, with the latest being 19-year-old- EricJames Borges. Here, they can do so anonymously which can be extremely therapeutic.
And, then there's Lyndsay Winegarden's gem of a group, STOP Teenage Suicide. I love this one so much. I did an entry on Lyndsay and her page, as well. She's a remarkable, very courageous lady who is doing great work in the area of trying to bring an end to teen suicide. That's my mission, as well.
That's just a handful of online resources that are paving the way to a much brighter, healthier, and safer world, not only for the LGBT community exclusively, but for all people. As the great people at The Equality Mantra put it:
"We all bleed red when pricked. We all cry salty tears. We are all the same. Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere."That's the general theme of all of us as we band together to make a difference. The great news is there's always room for more dedicated people.
"If you "like" marriage equality...if you're encouraged by the six states that have passed marriage equality, and hope the other 44 will SOON follow suit...if you long for equality across the colors to be a reality...if you dream of the day when what we look like, how we worship, where we come from, and who we love are issues that no longer have a seat at the table...if you model love and compassion, and hope to make the world a little bit better by caring and sharing, rather than by denigrating and tearing down...please join [us], and suggest that your friends join. Share your stories, your pictures. Share yourselves. Share the love."
