This documentary is so beautiful I find it hard to put into words.
Though I haven’t come out to my parents yet, I know they will love me for who I am. Even when I was a little girl my mother told me that I should be with who ever I liked, whether that person is a boy or a girl.
I am so lucky to live in a place where people are tolerant and accepting. My best friend knows I like girls and she didn’t mind at all.
The only other person I told was a girl I liked and later she wrote on her blog that ‘some stupid girl’ told her she loved her and that she wasn’t against lesbians but this still disgusted her. That did hurt me, but I know now that she isn’t a good person and every one that matters will accept me just for who I am.

And the most important thing is that I accept myself for who I am and who I want to be.

This documentary was very inspirational. I am the same age as Cj, living in a very small town, and attend a small Catholic high school where homosexually is shunned, feared, and hated. It’s extremely degrading going to school every day hearing people constantly calling each other “gay” and “fag”.  Although I’m not completely open about my sexuality, my best friends and parents know and are accepting and supportive.  This documentary helped me be more sure of myself, and not so alone, knowing there are others out there going through the same troubles as me. I’m glad people are taking steps to end homophobia. Although I don’t think I’ll become completely open until after high school, I’m not going to be so uneasy and scared. Thank you.

I hope our PFLAG chapter will be at the place before long where we believe this dvd can and will be shown for our community.  My older son died 7 years ago at the age of 36.  He grew up hearing some awful things from his church and at home about gays.  He lived a secret life enduring emotional pain that I can only imagine.  Parents, church members, communities need to hear - my motto, one of many these days - is SILENCE NO MORE.  I am out as a parent now and have learned a lot.  Nothing good grows in darkness.  Let us all work to put the light on.  There are many beautiful people who happen to be gay our society.  For Christians, let the light of Christ shine on us and His love be extended through us to those society has condemned,

This is a great film. I am 22 years old. i came out to my parents and close friends at the age of 16. I just moved to youngstown 7 months ago to attend YSU. People here on campus aren’t very open about being gay. I live with my boyfriend and we both attend YSU. What is very crazy is that I myself am from Oil City PA. I related to this film and enjoyed watching it. I am not out to any of my family that live in Oil City becasue of the way the veiw gays. MY boyfriend and I are part of an Organization called YSUnity on campus which is a gat straight alliance and we plan on hold a viewing of this film on campus because there are alot of small town kids that attend our campus.

I found this documentary to be very inspirational. I live in a tiny, rural town where everyone is conservative, like Diane. It’s very hard to live in a place where everyone hates you for being who you are, especially if you’ve lived in a place where things weren’t that way.
I went from being tolerated and respected for my differences to getting spat on and hearing death threats. I had no idea how to deal with any of this. People were afraid of me. They stayed away from me. When they did speak to me, it made me want to disappear forever.
Even my own mother told me that she can’t love me like a mother should because I don’t believe in what she does. Everyday I find fewer and fewer reasons to get out of bed. This documentary has given me one.
I find strength in the stories told and feel inspired to do more in my community. I want to be more like Roxanne and Linda. I want to help my small town turn into something beautiful and become a place where people aren’t afraid to be who they are. I know I’m not alone anymore.

Thank you.

This was a great film, I live in a bible belt state but my city is more open than most around here. I’m around the same age as CJ and can only applaud him for coming out in HS. I didn’t till a couple years ago at 19. I am however still in the closet when it comes to family mainly my parents due to their hatred towards gay people.

I hope this film gets spread to millions of people so they can understand what is still going on and realize just how ridiculous people can be. I’m no different than the next. I do all the right things and will until the day I die. The fact that I happen to love a person of the same sex is barely anything to who I am.

When I hear people talk about how Homosexuals have a disease and that it’s immoral it makes me think why they say that. I’ve ask many people that say this and they never give me a straight answer. At my high school we have only one openly gay person. His name is Justin and he is tagged by the title “Gay”. Although no one picks on him anymore and he is loved by many, people still say things that I hear about gays that make me sick. I know many other people that I love and care for that are gay or bi and they are scared to be open. Justin is very popular and was before he came out openly about his sexual preferences. But many of the others are not and they are afraid to step forward. I am tried of the pure ignorance people show everyday when they say gays have a disease or that they were messed up at birth. I say who cares what sexual preference you have or anything else. There is a song by the Black Eyed Peas Called “Where is the Love?” and in that song is my favorite line, “Can you practice what you preach and would you turn the other cheek?” I hear preachers say that gay is immoral as they preach to forgive and to love thy neighbor for their differences. I want to know where is the love in this world?! “Whatever happened to the fairness in equality? Instead in spreading love we spreading animosity. Lack of understanding, leading lives away from unity”
I don’t care if your this or that you should be loved for you differences as well as your similarities. we all bleed red, we all have hearts, we all need love so spread the love and stand up for the people who are afraid to stand up for them selves! Love all for who they are. Stop spreading Hate.

Bravo!  Saw your movie yesterday at the Richmond Gay Film Festival and wanted to let you know how much everyone enjoyed it.  A wonderful story, well presented and edited.  Am so glad I braved the snow to go see it.  Truly a wonderful effort.  Moving and funny.  You should be very proud.

Hello, i just found this page and i would so like to buy your dvd it looks like a great documentary.

The ladies and the teenager in this video are wonderful i just wish i could reach through the screen and hug them.

I am a 34 year old lesbian living in New Zealand, my partner died last February, but we would go and walk down town holding hands and no one would say anything. i was in Christchurch then.

I am now back to my home town by myself and there is nothing for the gay community here. I don’t even know any gay people but i know there here.

Timaru is mainly 50+ and very set in their ways.

About 9 years ago there was a gay support group and they put a advert in the local newspaper about the group, and they got hate mail and so forth and now there is no group.

I wish everyone well and hugs to you all.

From Nicola.

I was at First United Methodist Church in Lancaster PA on January 17th 2010.

I watched youre movie and almost started crying realising that their is so much hate and discrimination going on.  My mom loves me to death and will always love me for who I am and not what I do.  God taught us to love one another and not to hate each other.  I’m for gay rights and proud of my church and the people who support me.  Keep up the great work and look forword to purchasing youre movie soon.
