Jason Mraz Fights For LGBT Rights Some More!

He's amazing!

While attending the Harvey Milk Diversity Breakfast this weekend, Jason Mraz was touched by the cause. It brought him back to his own childhood and why he believes in standing up for LGBT equality.

He took to his blog to explain:

"When I was in high school, I experienced being bullied. For whatever reason, there were a few students that enjoyed calling me 'faggot' as I walked thru the lunchroom. On one occasion, just before graduation, I was in the wrong place at the wrong time and picked up a few punches, kicks and scrapes to add to my story. I never knew why the handsome lads called me names or felt the need to bully me, but it happened and I let their actions contribute a great deal to my moving away from that community.

Shortly after the row, my best friend came out, sharing with his friends and family that he was gay. In my small town, this was uncommon and since then I’ve considered my friend to be the bravest man in the world. Aware of the hate within our community, I was afraid my friend might be inviting trouble to his door – but that never stopped him from being fully expressed.

This is why I am actively seeking equality for the whole. When all of us are acknowledged as the human equals that we really are, there will be no space left for bullying. It will no longer be wrong to choose one thing over another. Equality and Separation cannot exist in the same space."

Amen.

    Sorry about that Jason, but I never imagined you'd grow up to be famous ;-) can you forgive me?

    ….being transgendered is NOT the same as being Gay and Lesbian….it is a psychological illness of being trapped in the wrong body….Gay and Lesbian individuals do not feel that…..it is a matter of attraction to the same sex versus reality/functioning and living in the real world and avoiding self mutilation…..homosexuals do not have a desire to self mutilate…..

    He's socially conscious, has an old soul, is uber-talented, and he's smoking hot…I'd totally leave my husband for him. Not even kidding.

    Re: Tube Steak
    LGBT Is a community that believes in the protection of human/equal rights not just for those in the community but for all. Trying to define our differences or everyone's opinions about them is not the objective or the point. Less labels= more equality

    I too grew up in the same area. He is right the "handsome lads" as he called them are wishing they didin't treat him that why I'm sure. When your young you really don't think about your actions until it's way too late. We love it when he comes back. Talent and looks to boot!!



  19. 19

    Does this twat think he is from the UK, 'handsome lads'. 'after the row', I know it is english, but he sounds like a total douch bag. And yeah, you are gay Jason, deal with it.

    ::scratches head:: Jason Mraz is British? And gay?



  26. 26

    yep, he's gay. He's stepped up his gay rights efforts as his first step out of the closet so he doesn't get criticized for not doing enough when he comes out for good.

    Jason Mraz is a truly inspiring artist, and man over all. This is awesome, it just gives us more reasons to love him!
