Hello all, sorry that I'm posting a little late for this event, but here we go!! October 26th was Intersex Awareness Day. Intersex individuals are those with genitalia or body parts from both sexes. Intersex people are often misrepresented and misunderstood in modern culture; mainly due to a lack of public education on the matter. Try to spread intersex awareness whenever you may travel to help stop
Hello everyone!! Today sparks the beginning of Ally Week!! :D This week us LGBTQ folks take some time to show appreciation to our supportive straight allies that give us the courage and support to come out and provide so much love where LGBTQ-phobes try to enforce hate.

Sorry for posting so late today!! I know a lot of you forgot to wear purple, but it's my fault for not reminding you all like last time. Anyways, today I asked you all to wear purple in honor of Spirit Day. Spirit Day is day to raise awareness about LGBTQ bullying in schools. I personally have not witnessed that much LGBTQ related bullying at MHS, and we are definitely better than most schools I've heard of, but there is much that can be done around campus to stop bullies. If you hear someone making fun of someone else, stand up and say something!! You might be the only person in that victim's life to defend them, and you will give them hope and maybe even save their life. Keep your ear out for bullies, report to me if someone is being overly offensive towards actual or perceived LGBTQ individuals, and speak up for those that are scared to talk!!
Hello all!! I'm sure most of you already know that today is National Coming Out Day!! ^.^ On this day, many people around the United States, and even the world come out to their friends, family, loved ones, peers, and so forth. Please be supportive of anyone you know that has come out today; as coming out can be a very frightening experience for some. On a more personal note, I came all the way out with both of my identities to kids that I've been going to school with since 3rd grade. It was really awesome having all my friends there to support me, and I wanted to thank all of you!! <3
It is finally October of 2013!! This month we celebrate LGBTQ History Month and National Bullying Prevention Month with a few other holidays here and there. Take some time this month to think about how far the LGBTQ movement has come and where we still need to put in some work. Keep an extra eye out for bullying this month and try to stop any bullys in a peaceful manner. If you do find bullying around campus, please report it to me and we can decide the best way to eradicate the bullying tendencies. Remember to stay safe this Halloween and have fun trick-or-treating!!
