9 Year Old Boy Asks Pete Buttigieg For Help Coming Out
I like this story for many reasons, and one of those reasons is that gay kids know they are gay at very young ages. You’ll see straight people say things like, “Just let kids be kids and let them figure out what they want to be when they grow up.” And that is the dumbest sentence I’ve ever heard. We don’t have to figure out what we “want to be” when we grow up. We know we’re gay right from the start. And the fact that clueless straight people say things like this is not only homophobic, it also makes it more difficult for gay kids to admit they are gay.
Well, Pete Buttigieg “gets” it, and this 9 year old gay kid knows that.
The boy, who was later identified as Zachary Ro, wrote: “Thank you for being so brave. Would you help me tell the world I’m gay, too? I want to be brave like you.”
And this is just one more reason why I’m supporting Pete Buttigieg this time in the primary election. Sorry gay Bernie supporters, I’m going with what I know this time. And let’s face it, now that gay marriage is legal we’re not even a talking points anymore for politicians. Unfortunately, there’s still a lot more discrimination out there.

Richard Grenell Highest Ranking Gay Official In the US
I never thought I would see the day when this happened for an openly gay man. It really wasn’t that long ago when “homosexual” men like Lem Billings were hidden in the background and kept out of the public eye.
History was made this week when Richard Grenell was appointed as Acting Director of National Intelligence. This will make him the highest ranking openly gay man in the country, at least for now. You may not agree with him on everything, however, he is focused on what’s happening to LGBTQ people globally. And that’s more than anyone else is doing right now.The things that are happening to LGBTQ people in some places are horrendous.
“I want them to understand that you cannot put someone in jail or kill someone simply for being gay,” Grenell told the assembled representatives, some from nations where LGBTQ people are targeted. “What we are trying to do is unite around something that is absolutely a uniting issue.”
Here’s the rest. Now if Pete Buttigieg gets elected, which I want to see happen, we will have THE highest ranking official in the free world.
From the day they meet for the first time until the day their lives change forever, Harrison Parker and Morton Starr were destined for greatness—and each other. A Starr is Born follows the paths of handsome, badly-behaving rock star Harrison Parker and sexy gender-bending performer Morton Starr, who is just starting his career.
Morton is so madly in love with his husband, Harrison, he’ll do anything to please him, including overlooking all his self-destructive issues. However, as openly gay Morton gains more fame and success in the mainstream with his popular gay love songs and his unique gender-bending image, and Harrison continues to slide downhill, there comes a point where everything has to change. And when that climax finally happens, Morton isn’t certain about anything in his future or his marriage.
