A lot of times these first love relationships hit fast and furious, but when high school ends, many of these connections also come to an end, not by choice, or because they are unhappy, but rather because of practicality.

I've been thinking a lot lately about the choice actors or actresses have when they decide to "come out" publicly. When I did it, I got a lot of people genuinely asking why is it necessary? I'd had discussions often about the fact that straight people needn't "come out" and a personal life is personal, so why bother saying anything.

The holiday season is upon us and I thought this would be the perfect time to send some love out to my LGBTQ peeps. Christmas is that time of year when the tree goes up and some drunken relative goes down after one too many sauvignon blanc's. But most of all, it's about family.
