Today, is the National Day of Silence. Today, hundreds of thousands of students nationwide take a vow of silence to bring attention to anti-LGBT name-calling, bullying and harassment in their schools. As a bisexual woman and mother I am showing my support by going virtually silent for the next 24 hours. No tweets, Facebook status updates, no Foursquare check-ins, and no Tumblr’ing. All my social network accounts will be silent.
If you are part of the LGBT community or an ally of ours please go silent. If there was ever a good reason to be silent THIS is it! Please watch the video below or read more about this movement here.
