The men behind the Romanian Orthodox 2014 calendar say it pays tribute to gay marriage, which, ‘is in the news all around the world and very timely’.
There is a significant lgbtq+ community on campus but not necessarily a “scene”. Club Unity is the resident GSA for Flagler and they do some really great events and workshops. Beyond the club, the college is somewhat accepting in the way that they don’t really ask questions and don’t want answers, but they will also shoot down any Club Unity events that are deemed “too gay”. I invite you to check out the club facebook as well as the LGBT St. Augustine page and let us know if you have any more questions!
I am grateful for my entire family, my long time girlfriend, Amber, and friends as we prepare to celebrate a glorious new year together.

the trans housing network is an important blog to me, and i suggest that everyone follow it, make a submission if they have a home that they have space in to offer people who need emergency housing
i personally have used that blog to find emergency housing when i was homeless the summer before last. it does make a difference. please submit to this page, and promote it, thank you.
Tom Daley, coming out as bisexual. x
Newsflash, Everyone: Tom Daley Isn’t Gay
He’s bisexual. And yes, it does make a big difference.
Tom explicitly says in the video that he still “fancies girls,” and he never uses the word “gay,” “homosexual,” or any other synonymous word to describe his sexuality.
The fact that media outlets immediately jump to the conclusion that he’s gay not only contributes to the issue of bisexual erasure, it also misrepresents what Tom Daley said, which was exactly what he wanted to avoid by making the YouTube video in the first place.
So get your facts straight everyone. Tom made an incredibly courageous decision in coming out and he deserves our support and respect.
We all knew it
