That last line makes me hurt inside.

IFH = Icon for Hire. They sing about depression and anxiety, and escaping it. 'The Grey' is one of the most heart filled songs I have experienced in a long time. It always makes me feel like its ok to be down now, because I will pick myself up later.
Just thinking about it right now makes me feel better.

Also, Gary can play piano, lead guitar, bass guitar, clarinet, violin, and flute. The guy is a freaky prodigy child.

@GreenKrog: That last line really *is* depressing. I can't even imagine trying to transition at that age, let alone with an unsupportive family. I imagine it would be very difficult and likely painful.

@Fey Prevesk: I find it hard to think of, too. When the world seems against her, you would think she should at least have her family to go back to an accept her.

I'm glad she has the Bernt's. I'd hate to think of what she would do without them.

@GreenKrog: Definitely. It always saddens me when someone can't even count on their own family to be there for them. It makes me very thankful that my family is completely supportive of me, and that I was 28 by the time I came out to them (and everyone else I know, excepting the handful that I came out to a few years ago when I finally realized that I was trans) and started my transition.

@Fey Prevesk: I suppose that is the only real advantage that older people (re: not minors) have for transition - they have the choice of who they are surrounded by, and can usually decide on being close to people they trust to be with them on their personal journey. I know when I came out, I had already cut ties with almost everyone who I knew wouldn't support me.

It is one hell of a steep tradeoff though. Had I been presented with the willpower and self-acceptance that Tony/Annie has, I am sure I would have been rejected just as harshly at that age as well. And I think it would have been worth it.
