And speaking of good things…

No sooner did I write about my blogging pal M of The Year Zero  than he posted a pretty cool video he made while in Alberta. He visited the location where Brokeback Mountain was filmed and decided to make a video of his ‘pilgrimage’. Enjoy.

Note the original video was taken down and reedited – here it is:

On a different topic.

Not to forget there is a lot of beauty in the world. My internet pal M has been blogging his trip to the rockies over at  The Year Zero.  His photographs are gorgeous and some even a bit surreal. Give it a gander.

Good for you.

To everybody who has asked me why I am so upset about bullying and serial blogging about it – including one of my best friends. I am glad you were never beaten up as a kid in school. I was. I am glad you weren’t. I want to use the F word but I will refrain. Interestingly, it was in #Toronto where you would least expect it .

And yes, I did try to kill myself at least twice. But I survived the name calling and punching and I am stronger for it. To those who called me names and hit me many times I say :  Fuck you!  I hope your lives are miserable – which they probably are. And to those who ask why I am blogging about something so personal. Well, if it stops just one random gay or straight  kid  who happens to seem different from killing himself or herself  and ending a proud and amazing life it will be worth it.

And another reason for me to be angry.
