Hi everyone here. What Mrs Sarah said is very true though i may not know her. I experienced it first hand also. It was this organization called fidelity loan firm (f.l.f)that really helped me to pay my medical bills when i was in dare need of money because i am a widow. A friend of my also directed me to them. when i was about to do a major operation and i had no money at that time, they came to my rescue and in less than 48 hours, i got my loan. But to say the truth, i was nervous and scared at first because i have been scammed twice. But when i summoned up courage and follow their lending policies along with my friends advice, at the end i found myself smiling. If not for them, maybe i would have been dead by now. I have even taken another loan from them start my business after my recovery which i am also paying back now. My only advice now is that any body who is really in need of loan should contact them with their email via: quaterloanfinn11@outlook.com and get a loan from them. Thanks.

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

- Dr. Lorraine Day on Riley's THE POWER HOUR (09/12): "...HIV-Negative AIDS cases falsely reported and treated as CFS cases may be one of the biggest cover-ups we have seen."

- In 1992 "...Newsweek made an even more shocking announcement: …CFS patients who had the same immune system deficiencies as the NON-HIV AIDS cases..."

- Dr. Judy Mikovits stated on In Short Order (11/12) about CFS & Myalgic Encephalopathy (ME): "…consider this as NON HIV AIDS."

My case goes up through the NIH, CDC, White House, WHO, to the UN. I testified federally in Washington-DC, and am published 23 times on 4 continents (including PEOPLE’S VOICE, PFLAG, BEST GAY NEWS, & FUSE GAY AND BLACK MEN'S MAGAZINES).

HELLO??? People are being imprisoned in the USA and elsewhere for merely downloading pictures or talking about having consensual sex, but ILGA doesn't care about that. In fact, ILGA continues to distribute HATE propaganda right here on its website, because ILGA is bullshit.

Proof that the Bible does NOT condemn homosexuality! Most of the anti-homosexual ignorance and resultant hatred comes from misinterpreting the Bible. This bigotry has been around for many centuries, but just because it has survived this long does not make it correct. Time for people to learn the truth and change accordingly. The Bible does not support anti-gay actions, and there is now a scholarly book on the subject titled "Homosexuality, The Bible, The Truth - The Bible Does NOT Condemn Homosexuality." This book represents forty years of intense scholarly research into the correct meanings of every biblical passage ever used to condemn gays, and it shows with irrefutable and verifiable fact that the Bible is not on the side of the haters. "Homosexuality, The Bible, The Truth - The Bible Does NOT Condemn Homosexuality" is available through all major booksellers. Bigots who want to continue in their hatred will face the judgment of God one day, but while we are all living here, we need to promote the freeing power of truth. God made all sexual orientations, not just one, and God made no mistakes. He made no "valueless" persons, He made no one who is worthless or a "zero," and anyone who takes it upon himself to condemn God's children based on the ignorance of their self-taught prejudices cannot say they do this in His name. God is not the author of hate, He is not the author of ignorance, and He made all of us. Let there be peace, and let it begin with education in the subject of truth.

In the U.S context, prominent domestic organizations sought to establish LGBT normalcy and inclusion as a means of assimilating into the heterosexual mainstream in order to change the minds and hearts of heterosexuals, pressuring local LBGT communities and individuals to give up their own sense of self and experience. I think its important to remember that stressing that " LGBTI people" are as normal as heterosexuals and deserve acceptance precisely because we are like every one else (aka straight people) was a political strategy. We need to remember what is normal and natural in society is constructed, our understandings of these categories are made up by mainstream society and politics. We should take pride in our difference and our queerness, we should not feel that we must make ourselves normal for others in order to feel good or enough or deserving of rights. there is no normal

Hello to you all this afternoon. I have a information concerning the director of international health, yes Dr. Thom R Feroah Well, how can he possibly be the director of international health do they promote or work to stop prostitution? Because, with me being in love and becoming heartbroken as I almost lost my sanity over this issue in Feb of 2012, for lack of an open ear to take in all the facts that I have been able to provide since the year of 2010. Where he was to get involved in my life? It's not about me and my past history...It's about how he lured my ex fiancé from the stripclub,where he was a well-known customer and promised to help us both. By finding me a job in the construction field in which I have certificates in, and also helping us to launch our non profit foundation, that will promote the awareness for victims of crime against humanity...Including the things in which I am speaking of. Well, I have confidence if you all look up his name at the Radisson downtown Racine, you'll see that he stayed there with my girl a few nights after he bought her a car from a Used dealership, a laptop, money and charms and keychains from the motherland or where ever he went around the globe. My fiancé started to change by feeding into the dream of him being different and he seen good in us and he just kept lying...Although, his lying didn't go un noticed with my perception of the situation at hand, my ex lady fell for the trap...I buy you this and will help you with that and what are you going to give me in return. As we all very well know he deals with this on a day to day basis claiming to be the solution of the problem but, while soliciting prostitution while in the states, as I couldn't do anything because he had his hooks in her for all he was showing her but, she didn't see the blinders. She worked at the center with him suppose to be his secretary, but turns out, she then pulls me to the side and ask for my permission to have sex with him because of what he offered at the time, when if our foundation was properly introduced to officials who attended the World Cup with him, who all took portraits of themselves wearing the ribbon pins, including the Aboke Girls, Pam with the Invisible Children, Victor with Ayinet and the president who played who's name I can not recall for the life of me. Well, before he left he asked if we could create a fake bio of where we knew him from and when we couldn't for lack of being liars, we didn't and that is when he said the thing that showed me his true intention, claiming the ribbon pins as his own and saying "what if I didn't even mention you guys..." My double red flag went up. Then when he got back from Africa, he said we would soon have a meeting in New York with his collegues so, that he could introduce us. But, by the last night in New York, still no one to meet with about the foundation. But, because he had put a bank account in her name under his, when he purchased the car, and he enticed her with the line of he pretty much brought us to New York ,like we were bums in the first place and haven't been outside of our city, said well, the trip, you all's room and food and plus I am paying the car off when we get back,all things she told me he said, can she come to his room but, alone. I think I cried myself to sleep every night while there because all day I watched as she disrespected me for means of making dirty money especially seeing that it was a person who we once looked up to, by kissing him all day as I sat on the sideline like I was just her friend and not her fiancé...Tore my heart to pieces. Her desperate,stripper mentality having ass, agreed to go to his room. I cried some more especially when she came back and finally realized how badly she had hurt me, she started telling me how he acted like a gorilla the whole time,something I didn't ask about, and initially didn't want to take place but she always would snap and say I made my money before you and it won't stop, well, I just valued her a lot more than my ex before this relationship, for the simple fact that she had been a call girl, well, she lied and said she was dancing the whole time together but, in Oct. '04, I found out she had been having sex for exchange of money, when she was caught in the act. Later, I found out she had HIV from my old p.o. and that's when reality of the unsafe sex I was having was with a woman who opened her legs or maybe even mouth for every tom dick and harry and I began to grow self-worth by shying away from that especially since it almost cost me my life and it wasn't like I was ever a pimp...Not one chance. I saw my aunt be beaten and broken and put on drugs as her pimp manipulated her so, at eight years old, I said to myself, if she took care of me I would wine and dine her not beat and abuse her ,I would respect her. Mind you this is also the age I was raped at up until around 14, when I grew courage to tell the perp stop, as he tried as my mom was in the other room. So, at thirty sadly since I was a young child, I was abused and sex has been a major role in my intire life from this happening to me. I didn't like men, still don't and for any woman who had to experience the pain I endured as I was barely developing, I would be compassionate about so to speak. Met a younger girl who wanted to date, not have sex, my mother kicked me out of the home at seventeen for not complying with her wishes. So, I was pretty much forced into a semi-serious relationship as the young lady's mother took me in. Having no sex, I still donated blood/plasma to get her nails did weekly but I also was an assistant manager at Popeye's by age 16 by this time it was near my eighteenth birthday so, I looked for a new job because, I was not feeling the chicken racks any longer. By me quitting money grew scarce. By not sexual pleasing her as she would have liked, while I was away at my new job, she did the inevitable by having sex with my favorite cousin. It really messed my trust up. And with the lack of another home to reside in I gave her another chance, so yes, I was forced into manipulation of life from her for means of having a roof over my head. One day I came home happy about finding information on my Caucasian father who escaped paying child support,then not too long ago I got an email from child support stating that they don't have me on file...hmmm? confused me because I had a birth certificate. But, now it was too late to charge him, I was already 18. I found her in bed with one of her ex's. Tore me to shreds. Again. After that by 20, I had met the callgirl so called dancer and when I met the real dancer in 2008, when my whole life before that point was about people pleasing and kissing ass because it was part of my survival, the life was no longer attractive to me whatsoever. I just had gotten used to females lying to me about things and hiding things- or using me because I treated them like queens...you could say I was blind to the fact they were whores. I met my ex fiancé in a drug treatment class, but we were just being flirty at this point in time...Well, she asked me if I could find her some ecstacy pills and for her, her looks , her demeanor, she was quiet and mysterious so, I made it my business to make sure I could so that I could see her later that night. I found out she was truly an entertainer at a real club not going to house to house like the lying girl before. So, to show my loyalty I left my past behind me...and low and behold, after having a yr to fall deep in love with her, she tells me that she is doing the shit and just didn't know how to tell me...I guess she thought I would except it because I did prior to us...Well, the truth is I wanted nothing to do with the like of how she made her cash, all I could do is love her respect her for being an honest woman and omg y? She begin to stay nights with this guy who sold her dreams of helping with our foundation but, honestly he used us and made a killing off of our ideas he stole under our noses. He drove a Jaguar but, told her he was broke and only gave her $100/wk to play house so to speak, she said he thought that she was his girlfriend. I became confused, useless because I couldn't find a job at this point to attempt to stop her and it drove me to a 60 day episode of no sleeping and just being erratic. As it turned out I forgot about the seizures I had as a baby, and had I remembered this important knowledge, before hand I would not have taken the pills but, at the same time, I felt it was brought on from re living my past lifestyle patterns of my women sleeping with men. I almost became adaptive to how she got money but, there was always a void when she would leave and gave me the look like she wanted to tell me what she was about to do but, just couldn't bring her tongue to murmur the words from her mouth but, with our connection needless to say, she didn't even have to tell me because as it turned out she did what she wanted, I didn't realize that true love was not about sharing your lady but, I couldn't stop her from doing what she begun when she was 18, and fresh in the club lifestyle. I have more to pick up where I am leaving off, I need to go home from school for a while...writing this has me all emotional...I never loved myself in life until she left me and I had to re learn everything on my own with no help being diagnosed with bi-polar with psychosis, which is in remission as I write this. Thankfully! I no longer use drugs and haven't since they only made me think deep and deeper about the things I just let take place under the roof of my home. I got fed up with the heroin user/liar/thief, because when I had the first breakdown she left me while I was in jail for messing up things while having my episode from the overload of stress she brought me to the table, finally someone who looked good at home treated me like a king but, when it was time to go , I never was able to convince her to stay not even once. She moved in with the heroin user in 2009 while, I was in jail for $100 for three months she barely came to see me or anything then her ex boyfriend was getting out this is why I began to worry because if she stayed the night with a man, I seen the callgirls make themselves thousands for something like that, but she would bring home $100 around this time after being gone all night like it was acceptable for her. Or she was giving her cash and time to her just released ex.? When I got out like July of 09, she picked me up but because of the weird things that transpired before I went to jail, I felt it coming. As soon as I got into the truck, she told me my clothes were in the back and how she let the man convince her to move in with him, which left me homeless:( As she played her games with him, she then little by little started to tell me how she had been with her ex but, all they did was kiss. It totally made me throw trust out the window. She was laying up with a strange man and hanging out with her ex who she claimed who didn't even take the trash out the five yrs they were together, and a person she had paid over $4,000 to bond him out of jail after he had gotten her house raided and $20,000 was taken for evidence. I was lost at this point so, I needed to convince her to go back to the club something I signed up for in the first place, not being with another cheating prostitute. So, this is when I built her back up. That heroin user had to be fired because one week he offered her $10. Ten dollars. Immediately he had to go. So, after putting up with all her pishposh...This is when Thom came into play,(the picture), but as the other men who just wanted one thing he was no different because after building our confidence in launching our foundation, and riding on faith even introducing him to my family because at first we thought he was a genuine individual,NO, he turned out to be the same, why put all the fault on the women the men are promoting it with paying more and more for what they know they can buy from a gullible female...And after me working in sheet metal in 2011 for a short month, I dealt with the most racist men. Their company even told the b..a to let me know that they were ONLY seeking to hire a Caucasian male as an apprentice and with the treatment there omg...you all could not imagine someone urinating on cardboard and chuckling as he told you to pick it up and when the warm substance touched my hands I knew this was why he came around that corner zipping his fly. She finally stopped doing that bad stuff for me and let me take control with my job, if it hadn't been for this happening I would have quit with all I encountered there. So, please do not judge me. I even tried to model but, the agencies were scandals. I was in the hospital Feb 2012, for another episode, this time it was serious...she left me while I was in the hospital,brought my four yrs worth of belongings to me there, I do mean everything. and after I got out again after witnessing all the money these girls got from strange lying men with wives, I let it drive me crazy because no one cares about a bi racial lesbian who has compassion for women by all means and then to be treated like a bum by this girl again...This is why today, I was like F it...I'm telling on her and Thom because they both had me fooled for a while there and this time I lost it for not being successful in my whole adult life as people took grave advantage of my loyal heart and I could no longer take being a failure when I worked so damn hard to be my best. Now answer me this? Am I wrong? maybe for sharing my heart with whores but never never was I a pimp. My mouth would contain more than eleven teeth total if I was about money...TWO THINGS I DESPISE>>>MONEY & SEX- for they were the ruler of my 20's down til I was eight years old. So, how couldn't I be able to help and reach out to the children of LRA's brutality...believe and trust. I was also a victim but not any longer. I just go to school pursing my m.b.a. in a global foundation...And after the world hears my short story I'm sure people will be open to my broad ideas about how we can as a globe move ahead with nothing but, high hopes for our futures,who needs a war when you have this info.? Well, I have given you all insight. You will have a YouTube video pop up on the screen when you Google Dr. Thom R. Feroah. I have been crying out since the date on it. No one cares or either to afraid to approach the situation. I just want an apology from you all for putting me on the news and one from him for shattering my dream because he was to full of lust to keep his word. Enclosed is the $5,000 he gave my fiance after I told him that I am contacting CNN about his deceit after he initiated sex with my ex. And had he helped us then without grave intent. She wouldn't be still doing this on the tablet I purchased for her to use on our non profit foundation enclosed is my proof of that and a ribbon pin we were ordering without Thom. She later came to me asking about escort sites because she knew what my ex did as a call girl and she offered me $100 per guy she would see but, seeing that my life is in a brand new place since my episode that started Feb 14,2012 when I missed my flight to new York to go modeling with Coach Models. Coach models.com and also tried doing work through the source in Chicago and model productions in plantation,florida-who(model production) I had signed a yr contract with and then I found out they were a scam, blowing my other dream to shreds. But, you see, this negativity between Leecia Harris and I is only because she witnessed my episodes both in 2009 & 2012... it goes to show you she never had an unconditional love for me as I once did for her and had she had faith in me, her partner, I would have still been happily in love together with the love of my life, we were engaged while she left my side as I was not well evidently and disturbed someone's things telling her it was from when my grandmothers things from when we lived on green st. You know I wasn't in my right state of mind but, she didn't mention that. And I ended up homeless again, only for three days, I got out easter day 2012, when my mother and my uncle offered me a spot on my Lil sisters couch. I seen her this same day. Down the street at her sisters house and so because I needed my clothing ans i needed Closure so I went there not to mention she still had four yes of my clothing pics of me at uw parkside when I did sheet metal work, my tools, I mean all that I have achieved my whole life was at her apt...my home. So we talked supposedly we separated to get on our feet I agreed.my other concerned uncle offered me a rm in his Atlanta condo in Buckhead. While there she sent me cash every week to pay for meds and cigarettes. I was going to enroll in a program at the BMW dealership for 20weeks and it would have certified me as a mechanic for their dealerships making $32/hr+....needless to say I wrestled with my. Emotions the whole three. Months I was away but yet didn't learn my lesson from continuing cntact with her and did the inevitable by packing up one day late july 2012 and had my uncle buy me a ticket back to WI.this is how I ended up on probation that Oct. Well when I got back home a month later she left me again for the third time in our relationship...I would have died for her sins. She had the coldest heart but, since I'm living, even after attempting suicide for times and told her because she was my witness to the SSI Dr appt OF WHAT I DISPLAYED as I deterioated and s definitely had ice in hr heart because she told me it wasthe wrong way and showed me the right way to do it.we went out for coffee at keepers she kissed me jumped in my arms n said she loves me.she went her way I went mine.but later this same night unexpectely at a store but could only look from my friends passenger seat as a short Mexican wannabe thug, who is recently abusing her along may have her prostituting and doing cocaine, all walk-in up behind her as they went into the store and. To the home i no longer had and the next week I was arrested. Please understand because I witnessed a lot of turmoil I just want to start my foundation not with her alone.these types of women and men have royally screwed my life over time after time. I want the world to know of my demise of society. Thank you with graditude.

HIV-Negative AIDS: Is it CFS, GWS, or AIDS?

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

- Chapter 33 of Hillary Johnson's: Osler's Web: Inside the Labyrinth of the Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) Epidemic is "HIV-NEGATIVE AIDS."

- Neenyah Ostrom's book "America's Biggest Cover-up: 50 More Things...CFS & Its Link To AIDS" cites: "Some CFS Patients May Be Non-HIV AIDS Cases."

- Dr. Lorraine Day was on Joyce Riley's THE POWER HOUR news segment (9/24/12) entitled: "...HIV-Negative AIDS cases falsely reported and treated as CFS cases may be one of the biggest cover-ups we have seen."

- In 1992 "...Newsweek made an even more shocking announcement: that CFS researcher Dr. Paul Cheney had in his practice 20 CFS patients who had the same immune system deficiencies as the NON-HIV AIDS cases revealed at the Amsterdam conference."

- Dr. Judy Mikovits stated on the In Short Order Radio Interview (11/04/12) about CFS & Myalgic Encephalopathy (ME): "You could consider this as NON HIV AIDS."

- The topic of NON HIV AIDS has been censored from mainstream media since 1992 (i.e., suspiciously enough, the same year that the *very mysterious* Gulf War Syndrome (GWS) started to present itself).

Will GWS, CFS or AIDS ever make any progress unless we acknowledge these horrific facts?

My case goes up through the White House, NIH, CDC, WHO, to the United Nations. I recently testified federally in Washington-DC, and have been published 16 times on 4 continents.

For example:

http://www.ukprogressive.co.uk/the-aids-like-disease-seldom-mentioned/article20891.html

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,

I was visiting Cedar Point, which is in Ohio, USA. It is a rather large roller coaster park.
I went on an all day trip with my girlfriend Liz, and her foreign exchange student from Germany that Summer. We were all 16.
We were standing in line for about 2 full hours when we were just getting to the front of the line for the newest ride. All of a sudden, a cop taps on my shoulder and tells me that "all three of us ladies need to step out of line."
Liz, the German girl and I looked around us in utter disbelief as to why we were being escorted out of line by the police.. I mean we were just a few 16 year old girls from a small town in Michigan.
While we looked around, one of the women in front of me in line started to scream at me and laugh about how "it was ridiculous" that I was "basically having sex" with my girlfriend while in line for the ride. She had called the park police on us for Public Display of Affection. And I swear on my life, that is NOT what I do in public. She completely made up the story.

The police took us to the front of the park and took our names and addresses down as well as a statement. Our German friend was basically in hysterics. She was screaming at the cop saying things like, "this country is ridiculous, they didn't do anything!" and "why are you doing this to them?"

We were escorted out of the front gate 4 hours before we were expected to leave for home.
I've not been back to the park since.

Cedar Point in Sandusky, Ohio is discriminatory and there are no laws against it. Because they are a privately owned business, Cedar Point can remove anyone they want from the park with no questions asked.



Disgusting.

I have no story that happened to me, I'm sorry. I just could not easily find a way to deliver my message to the world. I and my husband have been happily married since 1975 and WE see no difference between your love with your chosen mate and ours with each other! We are both thrilled with the federal government of the USA and the law that just happened. We hope and pray that all of the States of the US join in and support the Federal Government. Thank you all for hanging in there and fighting for your RIGHTS! You all deserve this new-found freedom. All US citizens, Please travel to your closest state and get MARRIED! Inundate the Governments with numbers that they can't argue with!!! You are all in our hearts and prayers. God loves each and every one of us... Christians, Jewish, Muslim and on and on and on. I used to say I was a Christian, but I can't anymore because of the other so-called "Christians".

Kate Hunt, a high school student in Florida, USA, faces prison – all because her girlfriend's anti-gay parents were angry that their daughter was dating another young woman. They went to police just two days after Kaitlyn's 18th birthday, claiming she had assaulted a minor.

If Kate is found guilty of "sexual battery" she could face 15 years in prison. But this isn't about a crime – this is about a consenting, high school romance between teenagers little more than two years apart in age. Please sign here to tell Florida Assistant State Attorney Brian Workman to drop the charges.

Hello! My Name is Victoria Jones, but people who love me call me V.v., and I am 20 years old. I am going into my third year at Azusa Pacific University, but in order for me to register for the Fall Semester (where I will be a Resident Advisor), I need to pay the school an outstanding balance of $19,280.00. The reason why this has just arisen is because for my first three semesters, my mother paid for school. But at the beginning of this year, I just came out to her as being a lesbian. She cut me off. I work over 35 hours weekly now, but sustaining myself AND paying off my balance is actually impossible. I am asking that you good people PLEASE help me. APU is my life, and if I can’t go back, I don’t know what I will do.

Thank you so much!!!
I have a page where you can donate funds. Anything counts!!

I am a documentary filmmaker, gay, and have just completed a film called STRAIGHT LINE CURVE. It showcases seven successful gay men of the USA Southwest who do not fit the stereotypes often associated with homosexuality. Each man has a high profile and is fulfilled, optimistic, inspirational and proud.

I believe this film offers the world a wonderful and motivational look at the gay journey, which few people in the general populace knows exists...but it does! This 32-minute film is available on DVD.

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).

the following is my friend Tom's story, in his own words

I committed statutory rape with a 15-year old male when I was 51. He was my student. I loved and love him whole-heartedly and completely, and promised him unconditional love, long before any sex took place. Human behavior is complicated and has many varieties. This is an unusual story. The government told a cartoon story with broad strokes of black and white.

I was imprisoned without bond, and had my freedom of speech taken away before I had been convicted of any crime. Newspapers printed government press releases without any checking of any facts. If necessary, I will submit to a polygraph on any statement I make, from any independent administrator. Ask those who contradict my statements if they will do the same. If a statement was proved by evidence or the victim's statements, I will put (P). I have discovered that the police falsify information, and distort and manipulate facts and testimony. My belief in the United States has been shaken.

The young man, a South American adopted into an Orthodox Jewish family, was cutting himself in September of 2009 when we met. He told me it was from the frustration with his home life, and not being allowed to be Latino or social, and being forced to observe a religion he found oppressive. He said one sister attacked him physically several times. He is a remarkable, bright, witty, and kind human being, with a fierce urge for freedom. I found him to be extraordinary. He came to see me most days, even more often after he was warned by his parents that I was homosexual, I found out later.(P) He brought a chess board in for lunches when he found out I played chess. We talked about history, religion, politics, psychology. He eventually he told me about the cutting.

I called his father, talked to the rabbis, called a psychologist, put him in touch with a former student with whom I thought he might click (heterosexual), gave him a copy of The Road Less Travelled, the best book I thought on how one gets happy. He kept cutting. I was frantic to help. I promised to love him unconditionally, forever. We loved talking, and I hoped I could make up whatever he lacked. I promised to do anything in my power to help him be happy. I sent him affirmation texts. (Know you are loved, you are great as you are, say "I am a wonderful person," etc.)

Some months later, on the phone, he said we should have sex. I told him that was a "really bad idea."

Some time later, he said he was playing tennis next to my building, and he would come by to work on a project. He came up, and said he was not there to work on the project, but to have sex. I tried to talk him out of it. (P) I said I could love him without sex. (P) He said I didn't have to. I said he did not owe me sex for love. He said he knew he did not owe, he wanted it, and he said I did too. I said sex was not that important, that he should not ask such a thing just for sex. He said it was for true love, that we were soul mates, we would be together forever. I said if we were soul mates then, we would be so in a few years. He said, true, but since we were we did not have to wait. Many times, he said he needed it to live. He confirmed at trial that he believed that. (P) He believed he loved me and that I loved him. (P) I said he should be with someone his age. He said he was attracted to older men. (P) I said everyone would assume it was my fault when it came out (even years later if we were together). He said he would tell them he picked me, and besides, we would be together. He said he had known what he wanted for a long time. He said such things happened all the time. Nothing happened that day (Feb,. 13 2010) We agreed to work it out. The conversation continued the next day with many more reasons for no on my part. He finally said if it was not me, it would be some other older white guy. (P) I agreed on February 14.

I have tried to be a good person my whole life. I try not to manipulate people. I love people without sex; sex and love are not the same thing. I do not even like to have sex with someone drunk, even a boyfriend because of the consent issue. I have always tried to tell the truth. Even in teaching, I would tell students the reason I was doing something (quizzes are designed to force you to read, etc.) I have tried to help the outcasts, with chess and theater. Many students said I saved lives, saved souls.

No combination of things could have made me give in like those. I had to save the life of someone I loved, a soul mate with love so true that 35 years made no difference, and if I didn't do it he would go do it somewhere else. I justified it by saving his life, not denying true love, and protecting him from those who did not love him. It was clearly wrong, but has anyone been subject to such arguments in such a situation? He said, trust me, believe me.

I thought that rejection just might kill him. I thought he wanted to be trusted and believed. I rationalized that the release of sex with someone he loved might stop the cutting. I let myself believe. He said in a statement later he did it for power and control. (P) The cutting stopped for four months until another fight with his sister.

Once I agreed I did whatever I could to make him happy. He was very advanced sexually. He claimed that I was the first, but close examination of his statement excluded from trial makes that claim dubious. He wanted to try light bondage and spanking. I always did what he asked. The prosecutor loved to say "penetrated with objects." I was the far more often penetrated. Everything done was done mutually. He was very happy, almost giddy. Only he could arrange meeting times. I came when he called, and did what he asked. He estimated 50 to 60 times in 5 months. The frequency with which he chose should have been proof of a loving if wrong relationship; I had no ability to arrange to see him. The schedule was his. He repeatedly texted and told me "You saved my life."

I had to move to Virginia to make more money. He said he wanted us to be together, so I remained faithful. I saw him that Christmas break, once, and it was clear he was no longer interested. He had been sleeping with a number of other older men. (P This is factual from his statements, not speculation.) I did not know that until my arrest. He called me to officially end the relationship in January. I was heart-broken, but I never raised his vow of eternal love. I tried to continue loving him as a friend. We soon emailed, and I never asked to renew the sexual relationship. I offered to be a best friend (my choice) or never talk to him if that was what he needed. (P) His emails say things like "Thank you...for everything," and "Not worry about you? Not possible." The emails are available.

He broke contact in early June of 2011. I heard by email from someone claiming to be him in October of that year, but it was not him. I denied the sex, thinking it was his family. I promised to do anything to help him if HE asked, and ended contact with the impostor. It was a Florida law enforcement agent. That was my first offer to turn myself in.

He got in trouble for his sexual contact with men. He refused to cooperate with police. (P) He was locked in psychological facilities for a year. He was brainwashed into changing the facts of what happened, (P) and his attitude was reversed. As far as I can tell, he was locked up for being actively gay. He was 17 for most of that time. In May 2012 he cooperated with police, and contacted me. When he called, I said I was ready to come tell the truth if that was what he needed. My second offer. He said he wanted me to come see him (reversed by police) and that he could not wait until he was 18. (P) I was confused by his previous rejection and now reversal. The policeman, as the young man, sent me sexually suggestive texts and emails, begging for me to renew the relationship, and made me promise to say something on the phone. It was the young man on the phone. I promised, and the young man initiated phone sex at the behest of the police. (P) I tried to decline; he said he had "needs." (P) I came to Florida and was arrested, after telling him twice more on the phone I would come and tell the truth. He was three months away from his 18th birthday at this point. The federal age of consent is 16, but they charged me under the Florida age of 18, but using a federal charge that carried a sentence of 10 to life.

The young man's police statement on which the indictment was based was largely disproved at trial. (P) The federal government charged me under an internet predator law, convinced that there were other victims. The police directed or suggested the false testimony. (P) They said I showed him child porn, which makes no sense. This was dismissed on sentencing, but they used it twice in trial to disgust the jury. They kept hinting at trial and sentencing about other victims, who do not exist, in spite of running a hotline number that was carried in the US and England. I find men from the age of maturity to 30ish more attractive sexually than older men, though not exclusively. Do heterosexuals do this as well? Does a 50 year old heterosexual fantasize about 50 year-ld women? I tried NOT to see students outside of school. I would never seduce anyone; the greatest attraction for me is someone's desire for me.

When the other victims did not appear, they brought in the FBI grooming expert to say I groomed him, since the evidence of persuading, enticing, inducing or coercing was slim. No grooming scenario exists in which the "groomer" waits for the "victim" to ask for sex, and then tries to dissuade the "victim." As unlikely as my story sounds, at trial he admitted that he, not I, proposed sex, that I tried to talk him out of it (and thus he talked me into it), that he BELIEVED he needed it to live, that I said I could love him without sex, and that he said he would find another older white guy if I said no. He AFFIRMED these at trial.

The interpretation of the law for induce as "cause" is to "allow to happen," when it should mean force. Under this absurd reading, this law has a LOWER threshold of guilt than statutory rape; a text message saying "OK, I will pick you up," would convict, without any contact. If every gay teen who texted an older lover were to be found in South Florida, there would be an army in prison. Statutory rape under federal guidelines carries a 41-51 month sentence. I was given 200 months under the persuasion statute. I had offered to plead guilty to statutory rape and it was rejected; they blamed me at sentencing for putting him through the trial.

Most heterosexual women in the same situation are sentenced to probation to two years. The application of this statute was arbitrary and unequal. The prosecutor announced to the jury that he granted that the "sex was consensual." The age of consent in Israel is 15, so in that civilized a country I would not even have committed a crime at all. The rich are sued for this. Where is the moral fairness?

Why was I prosecuted this way? Conservative politics and homosexuality. The family is Orthodox Jewish, the investigator who fashioned the testimony is Catholic, the prosecutor is Republican, and the judge voted for Rick Santorum.

I believed saving his life, or both of us believing it, would mitigate the statutory rape charge. I believed telling the truth and offering to turn myself in would mitigate. Telling the truth was the worst thing I could have done. Had I denied him when he called, and lied, nothing would have happened. I tried to be honest; rejecting him seemed to violate my vow of love.

I do not "blame" him for sleeping with other men. I do not love him less. I would have done anything for his happiness. I would have gladly NOT slept with him. I rationalized that I was being courageous to save his life and risk my own. I felt he was testing to see if my vow of eternal, unconditional love was real. He convinced me we were breaking convention for our mutual happiness. I thought I could serve some years to save him. If it truly saved his life, I wish I could say that knowing what I do now, I would still have been loyal enough to say yes. I would not have had the courage. I am sorry it happened either way.

Does love matter? Does fairness matter? Does the truth matter? When does a person have sexual and religious freedom? Can a conservative family change those by locking someone in psychological units, to change attitudes and alter facts? Does gay sex justify any level of charges, and any lying by the government?

I hope the young will save my life some day.

Please tell my story.

Hello my name is Daria and I am a producer in the NYC area, I am currently working on my latest project which I believe may interest you! I am currently in pre production of my latest film called "The Honor" this film is a heart wrenching, dramatic story about the love of a bi racial lesbian couple, whom despite the scrutiny from their peers and family they pursue their relationship anyway. After much tirany the protagonists mother ends up having her lover and soul mate killed, this story goes through the very struggles of bi racial and homosexual couples do today, and ends with a triumphant and revelating reveal. I am personally a huge advocate for gay/lesbian rights as well as bi racial and bi ethnical rights, this movie is my baby and the script was given to me along side of a dozen others and I immediately knew which story I would then make come to life. If you could be of any assistance with this project I would be more then happy to mention your organization in our film and of course give you credits. This is a story very close to my heart and getting this film the recognition it deserves is my number one priority. If you would like a copy of our script I would be more then happy to send it to you, or any more information! I truly truly hope to speak with you soon! Thank you for you time.

Sincerely, Daria
Producer of "The Honor"

HOMOPHOBIC REMARKS MADE BY A STORE EMPLOYEE FOR WAL-MART
*Email to the HR Department*

Hello,
My name is Michael Devor and this morning at 2:15am I was shopping in your store in Eaton OH and I had an issue come up that I feel needed brought to your attention. I was talking on the phone with the store manager on duty about my bad experience with a store associate. She was having an unprofessional attitude with me when explaining your check policies. Which isn't a huge issue every store has them but when the store manager at the end of our phone conversation called me a "faggot" then we have an issue. I dont know about what state your in but in Ohio that's a hate crime. I have shopped at this store since I can remember and to be disrespected like that has made me not only decide to shop at Kroger but I will also be forwarding this message to all major LGBT organizations as well informing my fellow LGBT members that your no better than Chick-fil-A and we should take our business elsewhere as well.

SORRY. TRY THIS ONE:


Cast the Last Stone
or
I Got Your Civil Union Hangin’

Do you take this man and this woman
Do you take this woman and man
To love and to honor and cherish
The way only a good Christian can

Will you throw a few stones at the heathens
Will you tell ‘em all where they can go
Will you hate everyone who’s not like you
For the Bible tells you it’s so

Or will you listen to that old hippy Jesus
Who said Leave all the bullshit behind
And let two dear sweet lesbian lovers
Enjoy all the love they can find

{chorus}

I’ve always loved you
And you’ve always loved me
You’d think love would be easy
In the land of the free
In a world full of bitterness
Hatred
And stone
Why don’t you leave all the lovers alone?

The love police say we can’t marry
The thought police say we can’t think
While the lawmakers locked in the closet
Say we can’t watch them buy the boys drinks

I love you like your soul is my soul
I’ll stay till the end of the world
But the minister ran from the altar
When he found we’re a couple of girls

Tradition can be a real mother
Those weren’t cruise ships in the triangle trade
And the two dear sweet lesbian lovers
Know it’s time to make history fade

{chorus}

Money is nice if it’s decent
And handy when push comes to shove
But the two dear sweet lesbian lovers
Know everything’s lost without love

They say Jesus he died for the sinners
And he fought so that true love will win
But the two dear sweet lesbian lovers
Were told they should read the small print


Charlie Manson can legally marry
Any woman that’ll give him the time
But the two dear sweet lesbian lovers
Were told that their love is a crime

{chorus}

Yeah, Charlie Manson can legally marry
Any woman that’ll give him the time
But the two dear sweet lesbian lovers
THEY KNOW THAT THEIR LOVE IS SUBLIME

Money is nice if it’s decent But the two dear sweet lesbian lovers
And handy when push comes to shove Were told that their love is a crime
But the two dear sweet lesbian lovers
Know everything’s lost without love {chorus}

They say Jesus he died for the sinners Yeah, Charlie Manson can legally marry
And he fought so that true love will win Any woman that’ll give him the time
But the two dear sweet lesbian lovers But the two dear sweet lesbian lovers
Were told they should read the small print THEY KNOW THAT THEIR LOVE IS SUBLIME

Cast the Last Stone
or
I Got Your Civil Union Hangin’

Do you take this man and this woman
Do you take this woman and man
To love and to honor and cherish
The way only a good Christian can

Will you throw a few stones at the heathens
Will you tell ‘em all where they can go
Will you hate everyone who’s not like you
For the Bible tells you it’s so

Or will you listen to that old hippy Jesus
Who said Leave all the bullshit behind
And let two dear sweet lesbian lovers
Enjoy all the love they can find

{chorus}

I’ve always loved you
And you’ve always loved me
You’d think love would be easy
In the land of the free
In a world full of bitterness
Hatred
And stone
Why don’t you leave all the lovers alone?

The love police say we can’t marry
The thought police say we can’t think
While the lawmakers locked in the closet
Say we can’t watch them buy the boys drinks

I love you like your soul is my soul
I’ll stay till the end of the world
But the minister ran from the altar
When he found we’re a couple of girls

Tradition can be a real mother
Those weren’t cruise ships in the triangle trade
And the two dear sweet lesbian lovers
Know it’s time to make history fade

{chorus} Charlie Manson can legally marry
Any woman that’ll give him the time
Money is nice if it’s decent But the two dear sweet lesbian lovers
And handy when push comes to shove Were told that their love is a crime
But the two dear sweet lesbian lovers
Know everything’s lost without love {chorus}

They say Jesus he died for the sinners Yeah, Charlie Manson can legally marry
And he fought so that true love will win Any woman that’ll give him the time
But the two dear sweet lesbian lovers But the two dear sweet lesbian lovers
Were told they should read the small print THEY KNOW THAT THEIR LOVE IS SUBLIME

Being a senior in high school I couldn't ask for better in the way of being me and getting messed with. I did get bullied a ton when I was in middle school for the preconception that I was gay. Later I finally came out my sophomore year with tons of support that I have now. Slowly I started telling more friends and adults along the way. Now I plan to find a organization in the states so I can start making a difference here at home.

College Speech here at my high school has really brought the advocate out in me this year. I have always fought for the community, but with the ability to get a voice to my class, has made it more wild. An informative speech I have been working on currently has me on the bystander effect and bullying. That has kept me busy with me trying to perfect it as much as I can. I want to be the one person for small towns to make a difference while I am still here. Then my nation and ultimately the world.

All in all, whatever I can do, I will do it. I will be the one that makes a difference behind the scenes. No fame needed, just the pride of a job that I go to everyday and love! I love LGBTQIASP individuals more then you will ever know. This is the era of change. Here we come.

As an American girl in her college years, I meet people from all over the world and of all different religions. Although America tends to have some horrendous issues on the subject of gay marriage, they are, overall, quite accepting. Since one of my majors in college is religious studies, I have made a lot of Muslim friends and have learned a lot about Arabic countries. It saddens me to hear of countries where you can be put in jail for life or even put to death for being gay. I simply cannot, whatsoever, understand such ignorance and hatred towards a person simply due to a basic part of their personnage that does not harm anyone else! I'm glad to say though, that everyone single one of these Islamic friends, who come from countries such as Morocco, Egypt, and Saudi Arabia, are all open-minded! Whatever their typical religious or cultural beliefs, they all believe in freedom of expression and a person being aloud to be who they are as long as they don't harm others. This, to me, sounds like a major step. Not only are they spreading Arab and Muslim culture that will spread Gay Tolerance here in America, but most of them even hope to do so in mother countries. I can only wish them the best of luck as they attempt to do so, hoping that I too can do something to aid the situations of those countries where gays are put to death simply for being themselves. I've begun to learn a lot about the Qur'an (Koran) and have learned to speak Arabic. I hope to start various online and in-person groups to continue the spread of positive LGBT outlook from the Muslim/Arab community.

I was so excited to hear this song. It is so important to nurture positive and supportive messages like this one. A song writer in Nashville, Gene Levine, wrote a song called "the Package" inspired by a true story of a brave young woman coming out to her parents and finding love and support.

I am not a supporter nor a contender of your groups and this is the only way I know how to get this message to you but I was driving on a highway in the central USA and saw a volkswagon bbeetle painted in rainbow colors from New York I was a bit surprised but was really surprised to see the name "fagbug" printed in large letters on each side now apparently this is some lady out to make a statment and has a website "fagbug.com" but the last time i heard people of the lgbt oreantation took offense to being called or refered to as "fags" and as a straight person even I find it offensive. You may already know of this person and their mission but this seems to be a rather odd way to gain respect by advertising the name/term "fag" with rainbow colors which is very commonly associated to the gay community this is just an fyi for the most part maybe your orginization is ok with it I don't know.

Sorry for what has happened to you am really surprised that in USA you still have people how hate LGBT people because of what they are.If such is happening in USA what about Africa. We LGBT members have suffered alot in hands of governments that are meant to protect us. In Uganda some LGBT lost their jobs,others are recieving death threats,experiencing discrimination unlawful detention by police ,LGBT communities in Uganda have no were to go to as they are scared of the police and even it cant take your case as priority instead they will inform you of the law you are breaking. Yet sexual orientation is a universal right. Let us join hands and try to put pressure on all government to decriminilse homosexuality pass laws against hate camp gains targeting LGBT people .Some of us have been victim to torture discrimination because of being agay we know what you are experiencing as for me up to now am still expriencing the pain from the torture of the police trauma and am ever suspicious of everybody around me. when i was still in Uganda i was ever worrying about life as i had recieved death threats even my house was destroyed Steven Kasiko

Defamation of character.
They try to portrait me as a transexual, Hate crimes orchestrated after that.
Extreme danger. Invasion of privacy. I have never made sex for money. Dangerous and hateful people after all this. It is in your interest to find out who they are. They go everywhere after you. Including the places where you work. Death threats everywhere. Songs instigating to kill LGBT people. All with smiles and dubious situation.

This is what they did:
