There is no community where I live. My town is labled as “extremely liberal” but that is complete bullshit. If you are different, if you are yourself, if you are not a fucking cookie cutter, you are judged and judged harshly. Everyone looks like barbie or ken and acts like they should be on MTV or something stupid like that. One of the only places you can find queers is at Barnes and Noble. Weird. But what I’m trying to say is that there is no community. I must find my own online. Unfortunate and advantageous at the same time. Unfortunate in the way that there is no “real” human interaction and you don’t get to hang out with them or have someone by your side in public when you feel especially rejected. Advantageous in the way of resourses and infinite viewpoints. It’s always comforting to me to know that there are really people out there in similar situations. So anyway, recently I found this awesome emerging collaboration channel on youtube where every day a letter of the LGBTQ spectrum is represented through video. Properly named “Alphabet Soup.” Thought I’d share because I can’t rant anymore today.
