As a lesbian I cannot express the joy I feel when I read your response to homophobic comments left on this website. It's not often that you see people throw tact out the window when dealing with such hateful ideals spewing from uneducated minds. I am not suggesting that people who are against alternative lifestyles are stupid. I am saying they draw a conclusion before educating themselves on the people they so despise. It is very common for people who are pro LGBT to respond in a passive way as to not rock the boat. I want to thank you and everyone else at your website for being a voice for those who are afraid to speak a word in their own defense even though it is not always the popular thing to do.

Donnie has been going against the grain his entire life. Common sense is more important than what's "popular". A straight person is entitled to pass judgment on a gay person? That doesn't make a damn bit of sense. To everyone who is afraid of being who you are because of what others might think, SCREW 'EM! A life lived for someone else is a life wasted.  If someone tells you you're wrong, or you're going to hell for feelings you did not choose to have, stop pussyfootin' and stand up for yourself. People mistake kindness for weakness, so push back. Do not allow anyone to make you feel like you are second-rate.  Never apologize for who you are, and never feel like God loves you any less. Whether you're in the closet or livin' out loud, LIVE.

If you are gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender, and are struggling with depression or in need of support or information, you can call the GLBT National Help Center at 1-888-843-4564. Or visit their website at
