Publishing Blues?


So ive been working on a book/Novella for a few weeks now. I showed it to a few people and they thought it was great and that I should continue it and find a way to publish it. It’s a book about my life, My mothers drug problems, my father and how he drove me to depression, my coming to terms with being gay and many more events in my life-like my first love. It’s a book about all the amazing and horrible things that ive been through. It’s basically an autobiography and a memoir. I was thinking of calling it ( Memoirs Of A Gay Kid) : Click Here for an extremely unedited snippet of two marking events. I’ve been told for a few years now that I should write this biography and ive started to do so. I really would love to see this published some day!

Finding a publisher is something that isn’t really easy to do. Because the book is about homosexuality and is a teen autobiography it seems to limit the disposition of Publishers available to the genre of the book. Not to mention that it will need to be re-edited a few times to fix up all the grammar and structure mistakes. It almost seems impossible to find one!  Perhaps I should turn it into a magazine article? Blah

Do you guys have any suggestions? I really don’t want to publish through a Vanity publisher. What are the steps i should take to realize this dream?

Pierre Elliot Trudeau – The Start Of Our Freedom


July 2005 ; Canada has become the fourth to legalize same sex marriage Nationwide, and is currently the only nation in the Americas to offer such human rights. The lgbt communities in The United States have been trying to legalize marriage, but have been turned down several times.
To me Pierre Trudeau was the beginning of the movement to stop discrimination and legalize marriage.
( Homosexuality was decriminalized in Canada as a result of legislation (Bill C-150 AKA the omnibus bill) introduced in 1967 and passed in 1969 by then-Justice Minister and Attorney General of Canada,Pierre Trudeau (who later became the 15th Prime Minister of Canada). He famously commented, “There’s no place for the state in the bedrooms of the nation.” )
In social 11 you will learn about him. and the Baby boom

Love or Fiction : Is it possible to find your soul mate online ?


This is the question LGBT youth are asking them self’s “ Is it Possible.
Yes it is possible to find your soul mate online, since modern technology allows you to “brows” through peoples  profiles, pictures, and even personal information until you find some one that you’re  interested in.
Yes there is always a chance that the men you are interested in don’t want anything to do with you, but there are always chances and things that happen for a reason. I know a couple… lets call them MR and MRS x. One day Mr.X was browsing the net and wanted to find his match. He was always interested in Japan and their culture, he even toke classes to teach him self the language. After numerous “Matches” he narrowed it down to one girl. Mrs.X. She was everything he was looking for, and he was everything she wanted. They added each other to MSN, and stayed  in touch for a few years. One day he decided to go to Japan and meet her. When he got there, he said it was love a first site. She immigrate to Canada with him, and they got married. They have been happily together for about 4 years. You may or may not agree with me, but love is found in the strangest places ( in the bathroom stall, in the coffee shop and even through the internet)
In conclusion, love is something that is hard to find. Some of us find it once in our lives and other find it thousand’s times. Its a part of life, its what makes us look forward to the future
