So There’s That… Adventures in Transgendering

Dante from “So There’s That…”

Recently, I was invited to be interviewed on an LGBT podcast named “So There’s That… Adventures in Transgendering” that has been growing like a storm and featured on iTunes in the UK. On it, I discussed my personal experiences and thoughts as a transgender person, as well as my music and Great to be Different.

If you’ve been wondering what it’s like to be a transgender person, or are interested in LGBT topics, you should definitely check out this podcast...

“Why is your OC a girl?”

I’ve had this question asked to me many times over the course of being a Brony musician. I used to see Forest Rain as being androgynous— without a gender. So I used gender neutral pronouns “sie” and “hir” to describe the character. My OC has always been a reflection of who I am. However— people learn more about themselves, and change and develop as life goes on. And this leads me to an important announcement:

I have recently come out as trans.

I Am Myself

I Am Myself (What it means to me) – SteelChords

When I started writing “I Am Myself”, it started out as simply writing a song for my favorite character in the show, Derpy, but when I went through the process of writing the lyrics, I found that I put much more personal experience into writing them than I’d originally intended.

When I was younger, throughout all of Elementary and Middle School (K-8th Grade) I was looked at as a bit of an outsider...

Never give up, be positive, and spread positivity to others

My name is Jeremy Wanzer, and I have been diagnosed with a couple mental disorders, mainly Bipolar, but with another that has apparently stumped every psychiatrist I’ve gone to, as it has changed at least 3 times and has finally been removed this last time I was tested and such.  There will be no names other than my own, to protect privacy and such.

I was originally diagnosed with Aspergers and Bipolar around age 8, and since then, looking back, I have noticed that my mother started changing ...

Robin Williams


So it’s been a little while now since the news of Robin Williams death. As you have probably heard his death was due to an apparent suicide. Robin Williams had been dealing with severe depression starting around 2009. It was also later revealed that he was dealing with the early stages of Parkinson’s disease. All of this news is incredibly heart breaking. A man who brought so much joy and love into people’s life ended his in despair. I think it shows that no one is immune.

Over the course of th...

I’ve stood around too long

Two students at Central Kings Rural High School fought back against bullying recently, unleashing a sea of pink after a new student was harassed and threatened when he showed up wearing a pink shirt.

The Grade 9 student arrived for the first day of school last Wednesday and was set upon by a group of six to 10 older students who mocked him, called him a homosexual for wearing pink and threatened to beat him up.

The next day, Grade 12 students David Shepherd and Travis Price decided something ha...

Blue Lightning Never Giving Up

Hello to all.

My name is Blue Lightning.

I am only 19. Just got out of high school last year.

My story…is a lengthy one. Every year of my life has been filled with hardships, anger, sadness, and pain. However there has been love.

Beginning from when I was first born, I was identified as having chronic kidney infections, spina bifida aculta (missing vertebra in my lower back), ADD, and keratosis pilarous (a form of eczema). From the get go, I was very different…and I knew it.

At the age of two, ...

The Mighty Michael Stream is Ongoing!


The 24-hour livestream benefiting Michael Morones and his family kicked off just 4 hours ago, and is ongoing!

Tara Strong joined the stream right off the bat with some very inspiring words, serving as a true role-model to this community. She brought up the fact that if you’re being bullied– it is not your fault. The fact that someone is bullying you has nothing to do with you, and everything to do with the bully having a sad need to try to find power in their life by demeaning or hurting others...

For Michael

Hi folks, Forest Rain here with some sad news and an important announcement.

Michael Morones

While the attempt was, thankfully, not successful– Michael has been left with severe brain damage, and his family has been left with the medical expenses. His family has reached out to the brony community for help with these medical expenses, and we are responding a...
