“I don’t like closets, but you made the living room an unshared space. Now I feel like a guest in my own house.”

Denice Frohman, demonstrating why she just won the Women of the World Poetry Slam. (It’s because she’s awesome.)

CNN wants to hear your stories about being gay in the South

fonseca-del-sur:

Are you gay or lesbian and living in the South? Then CNN Radio wants to hear from you as it looks at the topic more closely leading up to the Supreme Court cases involving marriage equality, one on Prop 8 and the other on DOMA.

From the CNN Radio website:

Some say the South has a reputation for being less tolerant of gays and lesbians, but we’d like to hear what it’s really like to be gay in the South. What kinds of attitudes have you encountered as a gay person living in the region?

CNN radio has set up a confidential phone line for you to call and leave your contact information and the best time to call for those willing to share their stories.

The number is 855-804-7198.

Bummed out about the bi/queer/trans erasure going on for this!

I’d do it but I’m not that great of a public speaker and I’m on Team Prepaid right now, ya’ll.
