Unlike movies, video game sequels are almost always better than the original. That makes GaymerX 2 totally worth supporting!

The second year of the first LGBTQ gaming convention has already tripled in length (turns out its a grower not a shower!) from one day to three!

How else are they going to contain events like an appearance by openly gay wrestler Darren Young?

Ch-ch-check out the video (above) to see the Kickstarter video to see all that's in store for you at GaymerX 2!

The project will reach its goal if it makes

LGBTQ’s Problems In Foster Care

Filed under: Gay Gay GaySad Sad

LGBTQ’s Problems In Foster Care

Foster kids are the silent victims of the budget crisis.

46 states and the District of Columbia have cut fund going to foster care programs, which are vital to the well-being of kids.

What’s worse is that foster care was ALREADY facing a lot of problems, including LGBTQ foster kids.

A study conducted last year found that only only 21 foster families, out of 246 that were surveyed, would accept a gay teenager. The results also showed that "virtually all lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning kids in group homes had reported verbal harassment; 70 percent had been subjected to violence."

Further, same-sex couples also face problems when trying to adopt. Some states have even institutionalized discrimination against same-sex adoptions, including Arkansas, Michigan, Mississippi, Nebraska and Utah.

Sad.

The best ways to get involved is to make sure to vote for officials who have a sense of decency and support the rights of LGBTQ kids and same-sex parents. You can also become a mentor to kids in need — just ask around your hometown!

There’s hope as long as we work together!

Cyndi Lauper is a true angel!

Lauper is opening The True Colors Residence in the winter of 2011, aimed at homeless LGBTQ youth in New York, between the ages 18-24!

"Kids are coming out in greater numbers as they see themselves accepted and represented on TV and in movies, but they’re still being kicked out of their homes or running away and living on the streets," stated Cyndi.

"We need to make sure we’re taking care of them. This is the next generation of the LGBT community," she concluded.

An estimated 3,000-8,000 LGBTQ youth are currently homeless in New York City, and The True Colors Residence will provide a number of them with permanent residences with 30 studio apartments planned for the 6-story building on West 154th Street.

Such a fantastic idea!
