i participated in Palomar”s Day of Silence on the 18th. i have to say i was looking forward to this day. i got a lot of mixed responses as to my silence. my boyfriend supported me and tried to help me translate as best he could. i had one man say he admired my vow of silence, even if it was for just a couple of hours. i felt really empowered by something as simple as not speaking. some people did mock me and others begged and bribed me to speak. over all i really enjoyed this experience and i… Read more »

Participating in the day of silence was rather hard I have to admitt. At first, I really didnt thnk that the whole concept would make sence and I didnt think people would understand it.

I have been participating in the day of silence since my freshman year in high school when I first learned what it was about. I have always been a supporter of equal rights for the LGBTQ community, but had never really been able to participate in any events. My time participating in the day of silence was probably one of the more difficult things I’ve done. I talk a lot, so being silent for an entire day was definitely a challenge. I remember a few of my friends also participated that day, but there were not too many others. At… Read more »
