servando cardenas (user currently living in MEXICO) posted for gay lesbian transgender bisexual intersex straight readers on 21/03/2012 +5

My name is Servando Cardenas and i am writing to you because i would like your help. I've always accepted my homosexuality and i am proud of who i am. Unfortunately there is still alot of stereotypes about gay people like being promiscuous, having some kind of disease, or just judge us like we are not part of the society and keep us from having a regular life just like any other human being. i guess many consider us trash. Since i was small i knew who i was and my sexual orienation, and it was back then when i promised myself that i wanted to make a difference in all this stereotypes, i wanted to demonstrate everyone that we are also human beings, that we all want to have our own families and find someone to share our lives with. I completed my task guys and i found my true love and know that i have accomplished it, i want to have my gay wedding and make it public. I am currently living in Reynosa, Mexico and me and my boyfriend want to marry but unfortunately we dont have the means to make our wedding, we are asking you for your help guys, we are asking you to help us make the difference and demonstrate people that being gay is not a crime, that being gay is not what they think, that being gay is about a sexual orientaton but that at the end we all are just looking for the same as the heterosexuals our soulmates. We have attached some of our love story pictures guys hoping to hear from you, and see if you can help us any mean. Thank you for your time and hope to hear from you soon! chachodude@hotmail.com

PRESS RELEASE 03/10/2011

Subject: The Red Universitaria de la Diversidad Sexual (University Network of Sexual Diversity of the University of Guadalajara, Mexico) promotes local manifestation in the local Congress in opposition to the popular initiative to "shield" the family. The demonstration will take place peacefully, giving its arguments and positions.

The Red Universitaria de la Diversidad Sexual of the University of Guadalajara, in the Mexican State of Jalisco, invites media, NGOs, human rights activists and the general public to rally against the citizen initiative promoted by the neoconservative organization "Mexicanos por la vida de todos" chaired paradoxically by a citizen minister of the Commission on Human Rights of Jalisco, Norma Edith Martinez Guzman.

We believe that such citizen initiatives contravene the general principles of law and the essence of the legal framework for the extension of civil liberties and human rights recognition. The proposed amendments to the Civil Code of Jalisco, far from ensuring the prevalence of a traditional family model, provide the basis for the law to exclude and inhibit the different expressions of human relations that exist today.

The Red Universitaria de la Diversidad Sexual will held that peaceful and orderly manifestation in the Legislative Palace during the presentation of the initiative to the local House of Congress at its regular meeting on Wednesday October 5 at 11:00 am. It will inform the development of the manifestation and the session in the accounts on Twitter @RedUdeG and in the Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/233889565232/
