Hey my name is Sades, and im glad i can be a part of something so moving and inspiring. I am openly gay and married to my wife Crystal. I have gone though alot in my life because of the gender i am attracted to. I grew up in Bronx, NY where you think it would be a somewhat safe place to be your own. However it was difficult. I came out to my friends first in 7th grade. I had my circle of best friends that i thought had my back, but once i came out they felt voilated somehow and stopped eing my friend. i lost all of them and started flunking out of school. My school was a christian private school and even the teachers started verbally hurting me. All i remember was them telling me that i will never make it to high school. My teacher would pass me when giving out high school info. Not only was i teased for my orientation but i was teased becaused i was mixed and looked mexican. My teacher went as far as messing with my grades so i can get left back, which she made happen by just 1 point. I became depressed,alone,started cutting and even attempted taking my life many times and have been in a room of padded walls.I was told i had ADHD, bipolar, anxiety, and PST. I found out my mom had HIV and dad was in jail again. It was a very bad time for me i had no childhood since other things happened to me as well. However throught it all I finally found light in my own darkness. I realized why do i let, all the words and actions of others, determine my own happiness and self worth. I finally entered high school on a scholarship at one of the best all girls catholic schools in the bronx. I went back to my elementry school with pride and showed them i made it. Since then i never let anyone determine my own thoughs and feelings because i truely have the power of victory. I had amazing friends that helped me and stood up for me in high school as well and till this day i call them my sisters. Of course i cant shed out all my life experiences here at once but i wants to let anyone out there know that i UNDERSTAND and I AM HERE. Love, Support and Knowledge is the key to stopping a Bully ! I am ready to be there for someone and stand up for anyone that is confronted by a bully. I want to bring anyone thats in the dark to share the beautiful moments in the light.. STOP A BULLY AND SAVE A LIFE !!!
