Coming Out Survey
Hi there. I know that no one has posted to this comm for a while, but I thought I would give this a go anyway.

I'm doing a research project on coming out for my HSC Community and Family Studies course. I have created a survey with a few questions about coming out, for both people who are out and those who aren't. So if you could just copy it into a comment and, say, delete all the other options (leaving your answer) and write your responses, that would be a great help.

Thank you,

Jeanne.

All anwsers are annonymus.


1. What gender are you?
o Male
o Female

2. How do you define yourself?
o Gay
o Lesbian
o Bisexual
o I don’t use labels
o Other __________________

3. Are you ‘out’ to friends?
o Yes
o No

4. Are you ‘out’ to family?
o Yes
o No

If you answered ‘yes’ for either one or both of the questions above, go to Q5.
If you answered ‘no’ to both of the questions above, go to Q14.

5. At what age did you come out?

6. Looking back, do you think this was a good age to do it?

7. Who did you come out to first and why? (family/friends)

8. How did they react? Were they understanding, shocked, disbelieving, cruel?

9. If it wasn’t immediate, how long did it take for them to come around? Have they still not come around?

10. What were your reasons for coming out?

11. Do people treat you differently since you came out? If yes, how so?

12. Did you ever get treated badly once people knew? Did you have to deal with any type of homophobia?

13. Do you ever regret your decision?


Thank you for taking the time to complete this survey. If you have any questions or comments, or if there is something you would like to add, feel free to put it at the bottom of the survey, or message me through my LJ account.

14. Can you give your age (or approx. age)?

15. Why have you chosen not to come out? Does the risk of discrimination and homophobia have much weighting in your decision?

16. Do you think people will treat you differently after you come out? If yes, how so?

17. Do you think that you may ever come out to family/friends?

18. If yes, what are your reasons for waiting?

19. If no, can you explain why?

Thank you for taking the time to complete this survey. If you have any questions or comments or if there is something you would like to add, feel free to put it at the bottom of the survey, or message me through my LJ account.

Australian Prime Minister Vows to Fight Marriage Equality
Prime Minister Kevin Rudd of Australia has made hypocritical statements regarding same-sex marriage. He maintains his party "respects" same-sex couples, but still vows to fight against their right to marry.

Take action by contacting the Prime Minister and urging him to support marriage rights for gay, lesbian, bisexual couples.

The Battle Goes To Middle America
Meet In Middle In light of last week’s California Supreme Court decision to uphold Prop 8, one grassroots and netroots organization launched a new campaign to target “middle American” values in the middle of California, Fresno. The event, Meet in the Middle, took place Saturday, May 30th at the City Hall in Fresno.

The event was organized by Courage Campaign, a group promoting activism and has previously taken up causes such as delaying wage cuts to stare employees and voters’ rights. Their “Meet in the Middle” campaign, recognizing that the campaign for marriage equality has to be fought city by city across the country and not just in places like San Francisco and New York, is organizing an event in a town whose attitudes toward LGBT issues are similar to those of the nation at large. In towns like Fresno, Courage Campaign can target communities that have been neglected by the GLBT movement and engage and empower local gays and lesbians that haven’t relocated to progressive meccas.

I posted this before, I only need maybe 5 more videos, and it's due next week.... so if you could help me out I would REALLY appreciate! The videos you guys have made so far are AMAZING!

Here's my standard message, and at the end are a few questions that would be great to get some answers for if you don't have anything else you'd rather talk about :)

I am doing a potentially really cool documentary type thing for a class final.
In our class one of the things we're doing is looking at the impact of technology on society and ultimately how we're getting sucked into things like Second Life, second "lives" on the internet, "reality" television, etc.

Anyway, I wanna do my own little project involving the queer community of course. Since we're focusing on the internet and media, I thought it would interesting to pose my question by means of the internet, and ask people to create a video response. I will then compile things together into one video and hopefully it will turn out really cool.

So I'm looking for people to create their own little youtube video, and send me the link. Talk about how you think the internet helps or hinders the expression of queer identity. Talk about coming out via the internet. Talk about hooking up over the internet. Talk about queer internet community. Talk about whatever you want involving queerness and the internet. Be creative. Go on forever or just give me a minute or two of your insight. If you wanna talk about something in particular but aren't sure it's what I'm looking for just message me and run it by. I'm not looking for anything specific though, I'm just really excited to see what comes. I'll be posing this challenge to not online my friends but to other queer internet spaces in hopes to get responses from all kinds of people all over. I'll let you see the finished result if I can get your help!

You can either post the link to your video in a comment here, or email me the link or video at spunky@gmail.com

Questions you can answer are

1. How often do you participate in these online spaces, and why?

2. How would your life be different without these online spaces, especially in regard to your identity?

3. Do these online spaces hold true to “real life” experiences?

 

Or talk about anything else you want... thanks in advance everyone! :)

Know any queer rural zines? x-post (if this doesn't belong/breaks rules, sorry; tell me&I'll delete)
Sorry if this doesn't belong here, but my friend Jenna (a.k.a. trashcan_chica) needs some help:

"does anyone know of any queer zines about living in rural areas or going to rural areas?

any help/pointing in the right direction would be amazing. i went through the whole Queer Zine Archive and couldn't really find anything.

thanks!
jenna b

p.s. i just got a wordpress site, sassyfrasscircus.com!"


Her (AIM) away message also says: "is looking for zines about/by members of radical queer ANTI-URBAN communities, so if you know of any..."

So please comment if you can help at all; thanks. :]

-Beth
