Day 73


This ad hit me like a ton of bricks. It is completely eye opening. I really love it when something so strong can be conveyed so clearly in less than two mintues.

Can we air this in Mexico? Right between the 4 and 5 pm telenovelas.
Seriously though, indifference does a lot more damage than expected, so please, if you’re reading this, promise me you will do something about social injustice.

I’m going to start blogging with my real name now, because in the past few days I’ve realized that there are very few Latino LGBT role models. Not that I’m expecting to be one, but I figured if someone from a remote place in Central America reads this, I want to show that it’s ok to be yourself and that you shouldn’t feel the need to hide who you are.

YA BASTA DE LA INDIFERENCIA

Love and Peace,

Day 32

SO MUCH HAS HAPPENED.
First of all, my apologies to my readers…if I have any regular readers.

It was my birthday this weekend and the girls from my building threw me a surprise party. It was amazing, they took me to an arcade because I felt “old” and nothing says young like pizza, laser tag and go karts :).

I also came out to my best friend here. Let me tell you, right before I said the words: “I’m gay” I was a tangle of fear, nervousness, and doubt- however, 1.3 seconds later I was a bundle of joy, happiness, and emotion. My best friend was thankfully fine with it and so far nothing seems different. I never thought that two ¬†words which are so simple could make me feel so liberated. I want to help other people feel the same way.

A year from now, I will be seated in front of my parents pronouncing those same two words. I really hope those words will have the same sweet taste as they nervously roll of my tongue a year from now.

Love and Peace,

Ellen
