Kurt: The future used to be such an abstract idea. The dream was enough, you know. And now the future has the nerve to show up and it's expecting us to do something and it's not interested in giving a lending hand.

Dianna reaguje na tričko, které nosila během vystoupení "Born This Way" v Torontu a které říká "likes girls". Je to delší článek, ale je naprosto výstižný a dohnal mě k slzám, takže ho dávám celý. Máte-li čas, věnujte ho přečtení tohoto pravdivého článku.
EDIT: Rozhodla jsem se to zkrátit, zveřejnit ty nejzajímavější pasáže (pochybuju, že se mi to povede). Celý článek si můžete přečíst tady.

June 2, 2000
What does that day, month and year mean to you? President Bill Clinton used that particular day to declare "Gay and Lesbian Pride Month". Nine years later, on June 1st, President Barack Obama spoke to incorporate an even wider group. Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgendered citizens alike could all have this month for recognition, respect and appreciation.

And how many times have you felt that perhaps further knowledge on an issue or subject matter might result in a different voice, a different understanding? Perhaps even going against the ideas they've learned, heard, or grown up around? We have the ability to fly planes, send astronauts into space, develop technology such as cellphones! Things that once were unfathomable.

As many of you know, we (the Glee cast) have been storming the country at whirlwind speeds to put on a forty-two show, month-long tour. It has been a constant reminder of why we do this. We've witnessed the impact our show has had, from the very beginning, to these moments, three years later. You LOVELY & AMAZING fans! Just indescribable. The love, affirmation, and dedication you provide! We see it all, value it all. Trust me, we do! On stage, the excitement that we absorb from your ball of energy brings our adrenaline levels to highs that often-times, we aren't sure we can reach. Bottom line, we love you guys. And our crew! Without this diverse group of hard-working people, this venture would be impossible.

Text of Lady Gaga´s Born This Way

Beautiful. True. Words to remind yourself, words to live by. Doesn't matter if you're not a Gaga supporter, or one of her "Little Monsters" as she lovingly refers to her fans. Kindness moves mountains. Acceptance opens doors, makes room for change, diffuses misunderstanding.

Raise your hand if you've spent nights crying yourself to sleep, raise your hand if you've felt as if you'd rather hide in bed all day than face the people that make you feel small or powerless! Raise your hand if you've felt as if you'd rather lie to people than tell them the truth about who you really are, because at least you wouldn't be the victim of hateful behavior or prejudice! And raise your hand if lying feels almost as bad.

I was not raised in a family that accepted prejudice or hatred. For that, I thank my Mom and Dad each and every day. Look, we are human, we make mistakes. I will gladly shout from the rooftops that I AM NOT PERFECT. Nor will I ever be. But I can happily say that to my knowledge, I do not ever intentionally cause people pain. I love my family, my friends, my co-workers…and they all consist of girls AND boys. I do tell them that I love them. Yesterday, during our second show, Instead of wearing my usual shirt during "Born This Way" I decided to wear one that said "Likes Girls". It should actually have read, "Loves Girls", because I do. The women in my life give me things that the men in my life can't. And vice-versa. No, I am not a lesbian, yet if I were, I hope that the people in my life could embrace it whole-heartedly. And let me tell you, I can easily spill (quite comfortably) what I admire, respect and think is beautiful about any of the women in my life. Piece of cake!

Last night, I wanted to do something to show my respect and love for the GLBT community. Support that people could actually see. Which is why I decided to change my shirt for the show. I happened to read a few comments that were posted on twitter. Many of you asked, "why?" This is my response. I am not asking for you to agree with what I am saying, but if you are listening, thank you. That is all I can ask. And a step further would be to take a moment to (honestly) answer the questions that I have raised. We can't always put ourselves in someone else's shoes. But we can try.

Our show celebrates the GLBT community. We are proud to be a part of something that embraces an often avoided topic. Hate is terrible, especially when we pass it down to a new generation of innocents.

Sadly, we've gotten letters from people who explain that they love the show but hate the gay story-lines. That we shouldn't be polluting their children's heads. To this I'd sometimes like to sarcastically reply, would you also like us to tell them that a stork is dropping off our offspring? That the sky is purple?

I believe that if you are bringing a child into the world, you should be willing to accept them in any reality. Whether they are Black, White, Asian, have four fingers, are disabled, gay…that the only wish should be for a happy and healthy baby.

I understand that I am sitting behind the protection of this computer screen, in this hotel room, and to many I might sound "preachy". Especially now that I have written an essay. I hope my intentions sound pure, and just. I speak, because I am passionate. I write with this passion because I know how it feels to be hurt, to be depressed, to not value yourself, or your feelings. If any of this has inspired or moved you, even just made you think…I encourage you to tweet or reblog a picture, quote, anything that you feel will continue to spread the love. And if any are interested in tracking the chain, perhaps visualizing the greater collective, include the hatch tag, #letlovein.

To thine own heart be true. Many thanks for your time, your love, and the gift you've given me.
Sincerely,
Dianna Elise Agron
