Society will never realize or hear our suffering voices if we don't show them! We need a subversive method in bringing down propagandas the bullshit media have told us. We are a community, not just some social deviation. The first gay person to come out in a modern society is an existentialist (I think), so I think existentialism will be a good way to get by everyday life. It has always been your own opinions that matter, not theirs.

Hello, this is a voice of a 16 year old boy suffering with schizophrenia and just happens to be gay. Wake up people, really? In the closet? Waiting for someone to frig you and that's it? I heard a story about the beaten ladyboy in Seminyak and I was really pissed. I think it's important for heteros to accept us (except those religious hard-liners who think sun revolves around earth, I mean...) But it's also important for us to unite. Why? I had a friend when I was in 9th grade, he was also gay. But he left me and told me he changed. He was one of my best friends and now he thinks I'm disgusting and immoral when we never did anything. It sucks really, because now he's living like a psycho. What sucks is that I think he was electroshocked or something. Oh and I hate school, they give sex ed that says AIDS is a gay disease. Wake up people! Read Oscar Wilde! Get out off the closet and into the streets!

I'm not gay nor have any gay friends or family members (not yet anyway), but I strongly support the equality of the LGBT just like heterosexual people.
Sadly in this country, persecution of openly LGBT people is an ongoing issue. Like yesterday the so-called Islam Defenders Front (FPI) halt a conference of LGBT in Surabaya. This is only one of dozens of similar or even more severe instances.
I'm not so sure when LGBT will receive the recognition they have achieved in some countries like Spain and Canada. Hopefully soon.

I'm *****, 14, straight. I'm not lesbian, but I do love Gay relationship. Are you confused? I mean i'm Fujoshi (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yaoi_fandom#Fujoshi) and I met so many girls like me here. In Indonesia, Homonism is completly taboo. I hate it, but I can't do much here. And... I hid my hobbies from my parents, or otherwise, They'll burn me alive

Mostly of Indonesian are moslem (I'm too)-the religi that forbid biseksual relationship. So... if you're gay or lesbian, hide it and I think you'd better not show it to a common people, except you really know that person will accept it fully.

Don't ever sad, I (and all Fujoshi) won't ever excommunicate you all... We'll always support you! >w
