How gay are you?

Tuesday, November 01, 2011


Have you heard the rant yet? Unless you’ve been on vacation from popular media, you know who’s rant I’m talking about. How gay is it that Rick Mercer had to ruffle some feathers to get the conversation going again? Apparently, very. And with such a hot topic come misinterpretations. We have not all heard the same call in Rick’s rant.

If you are part of the LGBT party at night but are negating this side of your life under the sun, then this rant’s for you. If there was ever a time to embrace all angles of your personality, if there was ever a moment to seize the energy of a wave, it would have to be now. If you hear what I hear, you hear social movement on multiple stages, speaking up for a tilt in the structure that has surpassed us. This rant invites you to shed the costume you’ve outgrown, the rags of shame and betrayal. The rags that still cover the bodies of too many broken souls who chose to end it all instead of continuing their search for meaningful conversation and its positive impact.

You are not responsible for youth stuck between gym lockers, struggling with the pangs of love and hate. You are not responsible for anyone but yourself. You owe it to yourself to live your nature fully, to be free in your choices and be true to those choices. But what is your part in this story of humanity exactly? What if a young mind comes to you seeking answers and support, will you represent yourself in a genuine way? Will you be faithful to your way of life and the history that permits such choices? This rant makes such a request to all who have ever found themselves reluctant to speak freely about their sexual orientation. It is not an obligation to disturb customers in a crowded restaurant with a gay rant.

Where is truth in the media? It’s in your voice. You can be the truth for young confused hearts. You don’t have to be a leader. You don’t have to be angry. Just be true to yourself first and fear, the creature that keeps so much of us in the dark, will fade away.
