Thank you to all of those that have already sent in their intro video diaries. I've got around 4 so far, but definitely need some more! The first one will be going up this evening (Bethany, that's yours) so make sure you get on Twitter and start tweeting about it.
Please don't be disheartened if your first video doesn't get thousands of hits, what happened with the trailer was a complete shock and I think things will settle down for the next few days, perhaps even weeks. As the videos get added however, more people will subscribe and there will be many more views. Even if just one person watches your video then you're making a difference, remember that.
Bex, if at all possible, could you have it up before 3pm my time (8pm yours)? It's nothing major, I have a scheduled session this Thursday and I'd love to be able to show my counselor. If not no worries, I can always drop by his office an show him when I have time. On a related note, I have informed my counselor and his peers about our forum. The Zebra Coalition specializes in drug and alcohol free living, but do offer counseling of all kinds o anyone in the LGBT community under 24, a service I've been taking full advantage of. I will be working with them to help spread awareness of the forum stateside Also, SUPER excited (and nervous) about my upcoming debut, I can't wait ^^
Just because you can't see us doesn't mean we don't exist.
