Coming out isn’t just something you do once and you’re over with it. It’s something that is always with you, that stays with you over time. People in your life change and you have to keep telling them who you are. You might not like it, but you have to do it. The need to come out never stops, no matter through what method you use to do so. Maybe you write a blog, you’re active within the LGBT community, you express yourself through an art form like poetry or painting, and so on. Look at it this way, if you stop you’re basically putting yourself back in the closet. Sure, some people know, but if you move to a new city, get a new job, or just meet a bunch of different people, your sexuality disappears if you don’t share it. That makes it easy to get back into the habit of hiding who you are and negates all the hard work you did to come out in the first place. NEVER be ashamed of sharing who you are, LOUD AND PROUD!
We are going to tackle a hugh touchy topic: SEXUALITY
Human sexuality is the capacity to have erotic experiences and responses. A person's sexual orintation may influence their sexual interest and attraction for another person. Sexuality can have biological, emotional/physical or spiritual aspects.
Fluid sexuality is when a person's sexuality changes over a long period of time. It is not overnight, and usually not extreme, but small changes in sexual attraction can be attributed to the fluidity of human sexuality
Monosexuality is romantic and/or sexual attraction to members of one sex or gender only. A monosexual person may identify as heterosexual or homosexual
Asexuality describes individuals who do not experience sexual attraction
Genderqueer has been used as an adjective to refer to any people who transgress distinctions of gender, regardless of their self-defined gender identity
Nonmonosexuality- to be physically, romantically, and sexually attracted to an individual who is either male or female bodied. Specifically, a nonmonosexual person can be attracted to a male bodied person who identifies as female, or vice-versa.
*DISCLAIMEROur culture has accepted 2 hugh lies. The first is that is you disagree with someones lifestyle, you must fear or hate them. The second is that to love someone means you have to agree with everything they believe or do. Both are nonsense. You don't have to compromise convictions to be compassionate- phil robertson

For gender non-conforming people, navigating a world that is organized via a male/female gender binary becomes a daily struggle. In this episode, we will examine some of the ways in which we can create safer space for gender non-conforming people. The creation of safer space is not only beneficial for gender non-conforming people, but it is key to creating a more democratic and livable world for us all.
Based on our article Navigating Masculinity as a Black Transman: I Will Never Straighten Out My Wrist, Kai M. Green will talk about the ways in which the gender binary affect people of all gender identities and presentations and how it’s everyone’s responsibility to break those barriers.
Aiden was aware he was different from a young age and was openly a lesbian at 18 but still felt it wasn't completely him. A few years later he came across the term Genderqueer and identified with it immediately. Soon after he began to realize he wasn't just Genderqueer but actually transgender. He came to terms with it but when he first told someone he was told he was simply doing it for attention and pushed the feelings aside for awhile. Years later the feelings were still there and he decided it was time to start changing things in his life, begin to transition and be the man he felt he always was.
Art has always been a large part of his life. Aiden found that art was a great way of dealing with his emotions and mental illnesses. At a young age Aiden was diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder, Borderline Personality Disorder, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Depression, and has faced chemical dependancy issues over the years in a way of self medicating his pain and confusion of who he was. But even though there are mental illnesses present in his day to day life he is always trying to keep life positive and enjoy each day the best he can.
blog and art page are:
Same sex couples are discussed. Why or why not same sex couples should be allowed to raise children. will it corrupt them, teach them to be gay? Will they grow up differently from those children who had both a mother and a father? Why shouldn't same sex couples be able to adopt children and start families. Also touches on Genderqueer (part of the gender identification) and pronouns.
