Hello ILGA! My name is Erik Toro and I am a singer/songwriter. My Music is about human rights, a theme that is very important in times such as these. I have just recently released my number 1 hit single in Sweden called THE RIGHT, that is about LGBT Rights issues in Russia and Uganda, and other places around the World. This is in collaboration with organizations and has recieved a lot of attention here in Sweden. Please see the video and hopefully it can be shown on your website and written about in the magazine. We have also released the video IF I PRAY which is about hate crimes towards LGBT's around the World, dedicated to victims such as Mathew Shephard and Daniel Zamudio and so many more. Please see the videos. Very Best,

Erik Toro

Allied NATO Government is hiding millions of infectious NON HIV AIDS cases (like mine) under the "Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS)" ICD-code.

My case goes up through the White House, NIH, CDC, WHO, to the United Nations. I recently testified on a federal-level in Washington, DC, and have been published 12 times on 4 continents.

UK PROGRESSIVE published one of my letters about NON HIV AIDS. This topic has been censored from mainstream media since 1992 (i.e., circa Gulf War I).


I hope that you will support this humanitarian issue, and spread-the-news too (e.g., write a story, add to your e*Newsletter and/or post on Facebook/Twitter).

In the fight for humanity,

My life with NON HIV AIDS (including my federal testimony):


Or simply google "NON HIV AIDS"

I'm a openly homosexual male, currently studying to become a teacher (ages 16-19) in the city of Gothenburg, Sweden. I have been adviced by other students to not make my sexual orientation public in my profession.
I feel that teachers are seen as heterosexual until proven otherwise. Does that meen I need to go back into the closet as long as I'm a teacher? I want to be free to say things like: "I was discussing the topic of corrective eye surgery with my boyfriend last week and he told me that..." and not having it be a big deal (which it is as long as teachers are kept in the closet.

Answerd the question of "Have you been denied medical treatment because of your sexual orientation?" - Have not been denied in such, but the staff and doctors had no knowlege of what to recomend as the best treatment sutiable for women who have sex with women.
