These are parameters, not statistics.
I came out just over a year ago (see this video), and as a result of such, I've had many people confide in me that they experience same-gender attraction. Therefore, I've discovered at least 10% of the students in every one of my classes since then (except one class I'm unsure of) have been gay.
Many of them are married. Many haven't even told their family members other than their spouse. In fact, the majority of these gay students in my classes aren't even "out".
I take a lot of computer classes, and even 10+% of those classes are gay. This tends to go against stereotypes. The majority of my classes are 90% male, and males are generally the one's who choose to confide in me. Some girls do, but not as often, hence that "one class" mentioned above that I'm unsure of. That class is full of mostly girls.
Gay people. We walk among you.
Like Canadians :)
Speaking of gay people!
|Jimmy Hales & Carson Tueller|
Carson and I met when I was 14 years old. We lived in the same neighborhood and went to church together and all that fun stuff. He came out to me (and then everyone) this past year. This past December Carson was in a trampoline accident and as a result is now paralyzed from the chest down. I am completely devastated. Carson, quite literally, is one of the most incredible people I've ever met. I would have said the same about him even before the accident.
There will be a 5k run (and other activities, which you can learn about here) to help raise money to cover the costs of Carson's recovery. He also has an incredible blog.

I'm just finishing up writing another song. I like this one. It's happy. The tone of my music is finally catching up to where I am. I hope to release it this month, but it'll probably be next month to be honest.
