“My name is Alex McClusky. I am 17, and a transgender teen in Cumming, Georgia.” -Alex McClusky
My friend Alex just recently finished building a social blog for LGBTQ youth all over the US, and the world. The website title, Comingoutofthecloset, is a play on coming out of the closet, obviously, and, get your mind out of the gutter, the city she lives in, Cumming, GA. I invite everyone to help get the website off to a strong start.
“This is a… totally awesome off brand Facebook.” -Alex
When you first enter the site, you are greeted by a rainbow (of course) and surprisingly more blog options than the average page. This site allows you to connect and share your stories by starting discussions and posting on the public guestbook. Backed by strong social blog options and a tight-knit group of friends as staff (a small group of friends and their friends), Comingoutofthecloset will definitely shine light into the surrounding conservative areas of rural Georgia, hopefully reaching those who feel trapped by the long-time opponent of gay marriage and my home state. Although the title is city-based, everybody is invited to join, share, and read. CLICK THE LINK –>
