The idea of this site is support of equal rights for everyone, not to exclude LGBTQ/GLBTQ. We are one humanity.
So these are the acronyms for (some of) the groups that help the cause:
PFLAG: Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (If you love or care about a LGBT person [or recognize it's right] join this group. It lobbies.)
GLSEN: Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (< My daughter Jacqui was president at her highschool. I am SO PROUD of her!!!!! )
GSA: Gay/Straight Alliance
LGBTQ (or GLBTQ, whichever you prefer): Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Questioning...or Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender and Questioning...or whatever pecking order ya like...hopefully point is made that it's to respect everyone, and recognize that every American deserves equal treatment under the law. Period.
Last point: I do not intend to censor or prohibit any contribution from anyone on this site in any way. So, be prepared for a breadth of opinions. Probably not too bad here, but still may occur. Please respond respectfully or ignore as appropriate. Remember that some are friends, and some are curious or interested. And some may not like you simply because you are different from them--and you may not be able to change that, although it's fair game to try. Some people are going to be abrasive and nasty, as in life. You create your own impression. The impression you create will influence others. Attack the opinion, not the person. I apologize if I’m reiterating what you already know. Ok, so jump in!
