This is a wonderful and well written piece of art, it speaks the truth. It takes a lot of courage to stand for what you believe in. Many people don't know the the struggles that the GLBTQ community go through just because we different. Rei makes a valid point. we are created equal, we deserve to be heard.

thank you for writing this

It has been a long time since I did anything for the Day of Silence, but I still remember how accomplished I felt in my sophomore year of high school when me and my fellow GSA members organized a Day of Silence at our school. We all had the official T-shirts from the GLSEN website, the bright red ones with the open mouth motif. We were so sure going in that we would be the only ones wearing them - our school wasn't one of the worst for acceptance, but it was more tolerance than anything. People knew we were there and maybe supported us, but always from the background, where no one else could suspect them of being a "fag". Our GSA only had six members, including our advisor.

But then came the Day, and we walked into school and saw that we WEREN'T the only ones. Plenty of our peers or acquaintances or even those none of us personally knew, but had mutual friends of some sort, wore pins, or carried around signs explaining why they wouldn't speak that day. About half of the teachers wore our shirts, to support us, even though they were required to speak.

The Day of Silence is an amazing practice, and I think its effect has only gotten stronger as more GLBTQ communities begin to enact it in their respective environments. We ARE being heard now, little by little, we are. We're making a difference, one by one.

This was a great piece. Thank you for reminding me about the power of silence.
