About

Hello and have a very gay welcome to The Ellen Project.

It looks way cooler when I put it in Italics.

I’m a 20 year old girl living in Mexico, who happens to be gay. While I’m so happy for the huge advance in gay rights the U.S. is making (I’m so proud), I can’t help but notice how behind Mexico is on that department. So I decided I’m gonna do my best to make Mexico a more LGBTQ-friendly place. BUT FIRST…I have to come out.

Meanwhile, I have created this blog to document my experiences as a closeted college student in Mexico and have given myself a deadline to come out to my parents.

Also I decided to name this the Ellen project because of my two favorite Ellens: Degeneres and Page. They are a huge inspiration for me and I really hope to meet them one day.

Lots of love,

Andrea

  1. As someone who has identified as a Christian most of my life and has always struggled with the arbitrary nature of the condemnation of the LGBTQIA community I wish you well with your project! 🙂

    It is so sad that in our day and age we still haven’t come to accept that people having different orientation and gender identities than our own hurts no one and is perfectly normal. But every movement has to start somewhere, and it takes people who are willing to put themselves out there like you to make that difference. I look forward to reading about your journey and hope that you find strong love and acceptance in it! You’re not alone, and if you reach out I’m sure you’ll find many people who are dying to do the same.
