Growing up as an Asian-American in Southern California, it is easy to forget how privileged I am to live in such a diverse, accepting, and safe community.

After a long school day, the only thing I want to do is go home and sit on the couch. But I, and many other students, don’t have that option. After sports, speech practice, or hours of rehearsals for the fall play, students must go home to face hours of homework that they were assigned that day. ...

Walking down the hall in school the other day, I overheard a fragment of a conversation. A boy looked over to his friend and said, “that’s so gay, bro.” This simple phrase was obviously meant  as an insult—as if being gay is a negative thing.
