  • I love your post so much. I’ve been looking up lots of information on LGBT+ homelessness lately and it is so sad. Like you said these people need support because sometimes their own families throw them out. I couldn’t imagine kicking my child out knowing they don’t have a place to go just because of their sexuality. Like, did you know that 40% of…Read More

    • Hi, Aurora
      This such an important topic that I didn’t even fully realize he extent of it. The statics you provided was starling. I really like the part where these homes try reconnect families. I could never imagine losing all contact with my family, especially over something like my sexuality. I love the mission that these community homes provide and I hope that they have enough funding to continue on.

    Aurora commented on the post, My Coming Out

    I love this coming out story because you’ve really highlighted how it feels coming out when you have conflicting aspects of your life such as religion. Sometimes like in your case it is very against the grain from what people tell you things are supposed to be and that can be really alienating.

    • This is really beautiful. “Let them love the real you.” I think some non-LGBTQ+ people might not understand how important this is, not only to a family but to an individual’s mental health. It feels awful to hide who you are, and nobody should have to. Overall, I’m really happy everything worked out so well for you! It makes me feel optimistic for future LGBTQ+ youth.

  • Dear Jos,
    Hi I’m Aurora, the author of this post, I just wanted to thank you for your thoughtful and kind response. Isn’t it crazy how different a response to a secret can be from what you expected. Like for me trust is what it boiled down to for my mom. She was really only upset because, to her, it seemed like I didn’t trust her enough to tell…Read More
