Pink Shirt Day

29 02 2012

Last night, while exiting my favourite store, London Drugs, I caught a glimpse of a sign that reminded me that Pink Shirt Day was tomorrow (ie. today). Coincidentally, I posted one of my favourite It Gets Better videos yesterday, not realizing that it was fitting with today.  Also, I think I screwed up the link somehow but I’ve fixed it now. I’m wearing my (two!) pink shirts today, although since it’s kind of cold outside, I didn’t really get a chance to show it off.  It’s the thought that counts, right?

I also wanted to share one of the top rated comments on the Joel Burns’s video:

For all those who think he cries too much – you have no idea how it feels not to be able to tell your own mother why you are so depressed all the time, how it feels to lie awake all night facing the terrifying emptiness, a bottomless pit of despair, second after second, minute after minute, day after day trough interminable time.

That about sums it up, really.  I remember those days.  I remember being so scared to even write in my journal about being gay for fear that my mom or my sister would somehow find my journal and read it.  I should probably write about that sometime.

In the meantime, here’s Joel’s video again.

Something to make you cry

Dammit, I forgot to post something yesterday.  Argh.

Anyway, here’s one of my favourite It Gets Better videos, mainly because it makes me cry a lot.  A lot.
