It's gay pride weeekend in Los Angeles -- has it been a year already? -- and my friends and I are planning our annual celebration of being honest and true to ourselves. How do we celebrate? Living our lives openly, without fear. Every day. This weekend, though, we do it for all the kids out there who are gay, but are afraid to come out.
Kids like Zach from Tennesee. Zach is 16 and was afraid to come out for 3 years, but just recently came out to his family at the end of May. His parents did not react as one would hope and Zach is blogging about it.
Read about his ongoing experience and challenges and show your support here.
Meanwhile, happy gay pride this weekend and every day.
