I’ve known of the site Gives Me Hope for quite a while now. Nicknamed GMH, it’s basically a site collecting very short anecdotes of endearing stories (chicken-soup-for-the-soul style) all ending with “GMH.” If you’re feeling down and want a pick-upper, then reading this site is sure to bring back the optimist in you.
I was reading this site again and I came across a few LGBT-themed entries that I can’t help but share.
Today, I proposed to my girlfriend of four years in a nice restaurant. When she said yes, the entire restaurant stood up and applauded.
We’re both women.

Today, a boy came into our English class to ask his significant other to Prom in a cute, creative manner.
After receiving a yes, the boy kissed my classmate’s cheek, and the room erupted in applause.
They’re both boys.

Today, my friend told her father she was gay.
He turned and left silently, and she cried, thinking he wouldn’t accept her. About an hour later, he came back with a gay pride flag and a stuffed animal dolphin and said, “Did you know 40% of the dolphin population is gay?”
