I want to personally thank everyone. Just for being who they are. The good that brought good and bad that brought logic in my life to weed out the bad and bring more of the good in.

This past year has been one of the busiest, most stressful year filled with hate, harassment, bullying, gay haters, gay gay haters, trans people going off the walls, radical feminists, phone calls, text messages and online bullying, yet actually beautiful, enlightened, awesome year of my life. A new job, new friends, new sights seen in this world and much much more.

A wise Drag Queen once told me: “Some call it LIKES, others FANS. I just call it friends. And friends I still haven’t seen or gotten to know”, and she’s right. That’s what I think too. So a very big thanks for everything sent my way. Both the good and the bad.

Being an openly gay Iranian activist, and a social icon as some have referred to, it’s a very daunting task. But a very necessary task. Sure, I lose friends, family and even relationships because of simply being myself, but it’s my duty and honor to fight the good fight with dignity, respect and humor to see what I grew up with doesn’t happen to any other kid.
A kid from NYC once told me that after reading my biography, he felt someone finally understood him and he felt he could put down the razor. Because if I could have done it, so could he.
I get lots of these from kids around the world and you can’t imagine the joy and sense of humble I feel.

So thank you for everything. And I love every single one of you.

P.S Sorry for all the dick-jokes, haha :-P

The truth behind me?
I get bullied. Still. Every day of the week. Everything from what I do as a living, that I do activism, how vocal I am, how open I am (people have tried multiple times to muzzle me down) and that too affects friendships and relationships.
Because I believe in the term “Masculinity/Femininity - who gives a fuck? You’re a human-being at the end of the day. That’s what I like. As a friend or as a partner.
Because I don’t define myself as to what society deems guy or girl. I define myself as I find it comfortable. If I feel like playing FIFA with the guys, then why the fuck not. If I feel like going my mah gurlz down to the nail-shop and get our nails DID, why the FUCK not.

I’ve lost friends because of what I do.
I’ve been tagged out of photos on Facebook.
I’ve been bullied on Twitter and Tumblr.
I’ve been shoved out of gang-photos, because people don’t want to be seen with me or associated with me.
I’ve lost relationships because of what I do.
The more I do, the more I get known for my work and who I am, the more people I get that come for me and try to sabotage my way to my own top.

But what keeps me going?
Myself. And what I believe in.
I’m going to have haters from now til Kingdom Come. And that’s fine.
You can try all you want. I’m still here. And I’m still going to be here for a very long, long, long, long, long, long time.

xoxo, Ani.

Here’s the down-low:

I moved from Iran to Norway, I had not a single friend growing up and I was bullied for 19 years and had the famous “jantelaw” after me my entire life.

How did I survive it?

By believing in myself, my goals and being MYself.

Weed out the negative people in your life and those that stand in your way. Tell them all to sit on a cactus, deeptroath a chainsaw and be YOURself.

My #ItGetsBetter-video is finally up!! :-D Hope you guys will like it! :-)

I toned down my witty-ness and my jokester-side, as this is a more serious video for a serious campaign. Kinda funny to see me switch personalities going from a hilarious and witty person to a proper person, hah!
