I just want to let all of you know that I am fighting tomorrow regarding a homophobic situation I dealt with last week. As a 32 year old lesbian I wanted to reach out and mentor a child through an organization and I was open about my sexuality because I felt if there was a child who was struggling with their sexuality I would want to be able to help them. There first response was what do you mean. I told them I would be willing to mentor any child but I would particularly be able to help a child who thinks they may be gay. I was told that any child I mentor the family has to know I am gay. This is so homophobic and what does it matter anyway what my sexuality is in being a good mentor. Do they tell all the parents that this mentor is straight. So tomorrow I am putting in a complaint and then taking it a step further by writing an article in the newspaper about this agency and my experience. The letter will also go out to the gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender alliance as well. I will always fight for our community. I am strong and don't take the bs. Good news is that my partner won a case out of court for one of her past employments firing her because she was gay. Gay people are strong. Always be true to yourself. We need to stick together.
