A few days ago, however, I discovered a new blog that I'm in love with and want to share with my readers. It is called "Born This Way." It is a project that gathers photos and short essays from GLBT people about their childhood. They want photos of people from the ages of 2-12 that demonstrate "the beginnings of their innate LGBT selves." They ask that each photo come with a short essay about when you first knew you were gay or different and something about the picture you submitted.
The results are fantastic and well worth a look. This project is a great coming together of various people from different walks of life and different ages. The photos are often funny and the essays are touching and interesting examinations of that "different" feeling GLBT kids feel growing up.
After seeing the blog, I submitted my own photo and essay. You can check it out here and then I highly recommend clicking around and reading others.
