First off, just want to say that I think your blog concept is really awesome, it's great that you do it. And secondly if you could post this message, I'd be really grateful. We're an LGBT helpline, and we really want more people to know about us, so that if they need someone to speak to, they know we're here for them :)

Thanks so much for the kind words!

If any of you need someone to talk to, I’m here and thelgbthelpline is here too. Don’t be a stranger! :)

Sorry about this message but we really want to spread ourselves around, in the hope that we can find more people to help. Thanks, oh and btw your sidebar Klaine gif is so adorable.

LGBT Couples 5/?: Ellen DeGeneres and Portia De Rossi

Ellen: ‘I’m going to be with her till the day I die.’

Portia: ’We were together for four solid years before we got married, but the minute we said ‘I do,’ the minute we stood up in front of our parents and our friends and committed to each other, our relationship changed. I don’t think people understand how important that little ceremony is and what it actually does to people. To my mother, instead of thinking of our relationship as a little bit less than my brother and his wife’s relationship in some way, it made them instantly equal in her mind, and Ellen became her daughter rather than someone that I was with or dating.’

LGBT Couples 1/?: Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka

NPH: ’I don’t want to paint our relationship like we met and it’s been happy family fantastic-ness ever since. What defines a relationship is the work that’s involved to maintain it, and it’s constantly changing. Sometimes I’m deeply in love with David and head-over-heels, and sometimes I question whether it’s going to work out and is meant to be. It’s like a business relationship, as well as a personal one; we have a business together and that’s maintaining our love for one another.’

David: ‘Without him, I can’t breathe. The biggest thing is that he makes me laugh, but he’s also smart. He can do everything. I’m not kidding; I think he’s half robot. He makes me a little more grounded, and I bring out the wild side in him.’

"Secrets can cause so much internal damage. People love to preach about honesty, how honesty is so plain and simple. Try explaining to your loved ones after 25 years you are gay. I always thought I could hide this secret. Football was my escape, my purpose, my identity. Football hid my secret, gave me more joy than I could have ever imagined"

LGBT Couples 2/?: Jane Lynch and Lara Embry

Lara: “I had stopped dating altogether. I mean, you have to sit down and think, How do you trust your judgment? But I saw Jane walking in the lobby and I thought, I’m supposed to follow her. It was like I’d been picked up in a fishing net. I was supposed to go that way—and she was actually going the wrong way! But it was like the door was cracked. It was perfect.”

Chaz Bono: “As far back as four or five I felt like a boy and wished I was a boy. At that time I didn’t know anything about people being transgender or changing their sex. As I started to get older I made the mistake of thinking I was gay. My mother is a gay icon yet she wasn’t over the moon when I came out as a lesbian in 1995. I wasn’t surprised by her reaction. In fact, I knew it was going to be bad. It took me a long time, into my early thirties, before I really figured out I was trans- gender. Then it took almost ten years to get the courage to transition because I was Cher’s child — everyone was going to know about it.”

LGBT Couples 3/?: Tom Ford and Richard Buckley

Tom: You can look at someone and feel like you’ve known him forever. The first night I ever had drinks with Richard I felt I knew everything about him. He has the wildest eyes — like an Alaskan husky. They’re not blue, they’re not gray, they’re a color you’ve never seen before — they approach silver. They give away absolutely nothing, yet they are completely mesmerizing. We first encountered each other at a fashion show in New York in 1986. He was 38 at the time and the fashion editor of Women’s Wear Daily. He was confident and handsome in a way that made him almost unapproachable.  

Richard: I couldn’t imagine being without Tom now. I couldn’t imagine what I’d be like if something happened to him. There’s only one Tom for me. He is still that man who I met 24 years ago, who has a good heart.
