'It Gets Better' at the University of South Carolina

I have to give extreme kudos to University of South Carolina students, faculty members, and staff for an awesome "It Gets Better" video.

I'm proud to say that I know many of these folks featured on the video and consider them as friends as well as people I extremely admire.

And it illustrates a point that the gay community must address. Unfortunately those of us from the South are written off by some members of the mainstream gay community for fighting a "losing battle."

Some allow their ignorant stereotypes of the South to blind them to the fact that those of us down here have talent and the wherewithal to create a highly successful and highly powerful gay community. And we have done this.

It all comes down to a clique mentality and unless some members of the mainstream gay community abandon this mentality, a lot of talent will be wasted.
