    It appears to me to be an incredibly sad, somewhat thwarted story.

    I'm not sure this man became everything he could possibly have been, but I do know he was a gay man who became a hero. I think he was looking for things that I would have liked him to have found elsewhere, but when he did the ultimate thing, he's still been denied.

    Not acceptable.

    This is one post I'll wait and read later. I'm not in the mood for tears right now.
    Actually....is there a right time for crying? :frown1:

    I wish I had the strength and wit to assemble everyone gay/bi/straight suportive and knock on the door of the men and women that choose to fight against equal rights.

    It's so much different to talk behind a bodyguard and spout hate than it is to be surrounded by the people that they are trying to keep rights from.
