For parents of LGBT children who are striving to find the right words to say to their kids -- look no further, for this is your template...
Continue to build passion and company pride, because if you are not sure why you like your company how can you sell its products or services?
What would be possible if we allowed ourselves to be vulnerable, to take the risks that love demands?
All signs pointed toward me being gay, but to my mom and relatives I was just a kid having fun. I was fabulous that night and I knew it; that is, until my father walked in and saw me.
How many times have you heard someone ask, "Is everybody choosing to be gay these days?" Why, now that you mention it, my dear keen observer of universal truth, yes! And because of that, I now quit being gay! That's right, y'all. The jig is up.
This is why we quad date, which is really just dating other duos -- a girl and her gay best friend -- but the word 'quad' is more fun. Put it this way, it's like going to the movies with your best friend: You can whisper to each other during the show, and then analyze it after.
