I AM...

I am whatever YOU think I am until YOU get to KNOW me. This is true for everyone else too, of course.. so don't make assumptions about anyone or pass judgment; ask questions. You might just make a new friend.

This is a gay kid, Paul V. thought to himself upon viewing a friend's particularly telling online photo, which was taken when the guy was a 3-year-old boy. The image was of a smiling toddler in a plaid jumpsuit, one hand on each hip, his left knee bent slightly toward the right knee, which allowed his left foot to point to the floor and showcase a shiny white sneaker. Very red carpet. Paul then wondered,Wouldn't it be great if there were collected photographic evidence of gay kids that would show that being gay is innate and not a choice?
So began the Born This Way blog—a photo essay project that shows the "innocent beginnings" of LGBTQ children. And in just a few months' time, the site has received more than two million page views, has been featured on CNN, and just gave birth last week to a new weekly radio show. For Paul—who's been a key player in the Southern California music scene for more than two decades (he's known professionally as DJ Paul V.), the Born This Way blog is just the latest twist in his ongoing creative journey.

Isn't it AMAZING how the various pride events bring us all together? There is no us against them, gay men and lesbians party and celebrate pride side by side. Now when the glitter is all washed off and the parade is over, what happens to that togetherness? It’s as if many gay man growing up and coming into my own as a gay men, tend to be influenced by many factors that make them believe that lesbians are butch, angry women who HATE gay men. And this belief seems to fill them with fear about being around lesbians. Yeah many of us mock how quickly lesbians move in together after the second date, but I somehow suspect that deep down that comes from a place of jealously. But all of this aside, can someone tell me once and for all, why gay men have such a hatred for lesbians?
