I grew to understand that perhaps this really was my how to save money fast for a house calling and that perhaps an engineering career would have to how to save money fast for a house wait. So, with the help of many angels, many, many angels sent my way and hard work on my how to save money fast for a house part I would wind up in new york city studying how to save money fast for a house at, and four years later graduation from the julliard’s school’s drama division.

TV is powerful, I think it’s no secret that hollywood and the media have a how to save money fast for a house huge impact on our culture’s perception of itself. Before I joined the cast of grey’s anatomy, I had grown to accept that the media’s images of beauty and intelligence would be indefinitely be how to save money fast for a house exclusive and quite dismissive of all the true beauty and how to save money fast for a house intelligence that surrounds us in the real world, but here was my boss, asking me to show that a woman who looks like how to save money fast for a house me could absolutely be a leader, who explores and enjoys her pleasure center, can fall in love, feels sexy and be a nurturer. Sometimes erroneous, sometimes self aware, vulnerable, powerful, human, and again I thought “wow this is so much bigger than me”. Shonda rhimes is the same person who showed tremendous commitment how to save money fast for a house when we discussed the possibility of callie being a vessel how to save money fast for a house for a story about someone who discovers that their sexual how to save money fast for a house orientation is different from what they initially understood it to how to save money fast for a house be.

Most recently, dr torres unapologeticly declared that she is bisexual and that how to save money fast for a house it is real. The adversity written for callie, the way she manages to get back on her own how to save money fast for a house two feet, and her unwavering belief in love are just some of how to save money fast for a house the many things I love about her, she is a survivor, she is a human, flawed yet lovable, perfect in her imperfections, and what an honor is has been to pour my how to save money fast for a house heart and soul into a fictional character who represents something how to save money fast for a house so much bigger than all of us, a character who shows us we are all, each and every single one of us deserving of equality, respect, acceptance, love, compassion.

Recently my husband was asked rather loudly by self-proclaimed fan “what’s it like being married to a woman who plays how to save money fast for a house a …lesbian?”, all pointed like being a lesbian is this awful, horrible thing and well thank goodness my husband is intelligent how to save money fast for a house and evolved because he handled clarifying the truth for this how to save money fast for a house person and hopefully they received it. Later when my husband told me the story, we chuckled at first because obviously this person is not how to save money fast for a house a fan of the show, dr torres is bisexual, hello, couldn’t even get that part right. But, clarifying that was not as important as the most dangerous how to save money fast for a house part of the exchange, and you know what? We were frustrated, no, we were pissed. In implying that there is something wrong with playing a how to save money fast for a house lesbian, this person who represents folks who speak like this may how to save money fast for a house never know how offensive, disrespectful, and hurtful their tone could be to someone overhearing this how to save money fast for a house exchange, who is a lesbian or a part of the LGBTQ how to save money fast for a house community for that matter. Now, the good news is, this kind of exchange is outweighed by the many, many, many letters that I have received, and continue to receive from people who are a part how to save money fast for a house of the LGBT community. People who see themselves in callie’s story and who are struggling to find acceptance, a safe place or who have found it and are how to save money fast for a house thriving.

People who, for the first time feel brave and empowered enough to how to save money fast for a house come out to their loved ones because they watched callie how to save money fast for a house live it on screen, and it turns out, according to the HRC’s recent ‘growing up LGBT in america’ survey, of more that 10,000 american LGBT youth ages 13-17, nearly 40% of the participants identified as bisexual. In 2013, pew research center survey of LGBT adults , 40% of those respondents were bisexual, that’s almost half of the entire LGBTQ community.

Several weeks ago I heard a really touching story about how to save money fast for a house how a few years back, this married couple, whose permission I got to share this, because it is personal, was facing a terrifying time as one of them found how to save money fast for a house out they had a brain tumor. They watched the grey’s anatomy musical episode right before surgery and then wanted how to save money fast for a house me to know that she carried my voice into her how to save money fast for a house dreams and it gave her much needed escape, laughter and just… peace before, and I’m happy to say after surgery.

These are the people who I do this for. These are the thoughtful beautiful people who remind me time how to save money fast for a house and time again that the arts and entertainment can be how to save money fast for a house a tool for much needed civic dialog and sometimes just how to save money fast for a house to help people get through a really tough time.

Violence between transgender women and particularly women of colour is how to save money fast for a house an epidemic, there are so many stories like this, so many members of the LGBTQ community who deserve better how to save money fast for a house from the human race.

This also brings to mind another community vulnerable to violence, migrant workers.

This document says “we will be a champion for communities who are too how to save money fast for a house frequently vulnerable to violence, abuse and neglect such as ethnic and religious minorities, people with disabilities, lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals, displaced persons, and migrant workers.”

There are too many people in the world who feel how to save money fast for a house as alone as leelah did. We’ve lost so many already, we cannot let our LGBTQ children walk the earth feeling how to save money fast for a house less than, feeling worthless, feeling wrong.

It’s been a week since THAT episode. You know the one we mean. We haven’t quite recovered. Twitter and facebook certainly let us know we aren’t alone. The funny thing is that it’s not so much about the break-up but the amazing emotional ride that shonda rhimes and how to save money fast for a house the GREY’S ANATOMY team took us on. Even if you want to see callie and arizona together, you have to agree that the only way for ANY how to save money fast for a house couple to survive is for each person to love themselves how to save money fast for a house first. There aren’t many TV shows that would take a risk and how to save money fast for a house do what’s right for the characters rather than what some fans how to save money fast for a house may want.

It’s episodes like this that make us watch GREY’S ANATOMY year after year (and every other show shondaland does). With all of the wonderfully outrageous things that rhimes comes how to save money fast for a house up with (plane crashes, shooters, bombs, etc.), it is the deeply personal, deeply emotional, and – yes, we are going to say it – deeply real episodes like the calzona break-up that get us. And no matter what you feel about the story-line you have to agree e ach and every moment how to save money fast for a house was BRILLIANTLY acted. How amazing is it that rhimes let us see these how to save money fast for a house phenomenal actresses shine?!
