A couple of years ago I printed some of these and made a collage. Even if they are not all lovers, it is wonderful to see affection between men. American society frowns on such affection. They make me smile and yet are sad at the same time. Sometimes love is difficult to find, especially being an atheist. People pre-judge you and will not even explore who you are. I have a full life of family, friends, hobbies, gardening, many pets, and yet miss sharing who I am with someone special.

Some beautiful old photos. You don't see photos like these very often. Thanks for sharing them.

Comment I posted at 365Gay.com re: the group that wants same sex people to be executed per Leviticus:

Wait a minute. Am I missing something? The noose sign people quote the Leviticus Cafeteria for the proposition that gays should be executed? Wasn't there some prophet who came along and saved whores from death by stoning? Didn't he preach compassion for everyone, and doesn't the Declaration of Independence state that all were created equal (language not qualified by exclusion of gays). These people are not just homophobic, they are lapsed Christians with an anti-American agenda.

@Dale, Great video. Do you really think there is hope for them?

I posted this song because the Ted Haggard song has already been posted.

BMA is making an awful lot of sense lately

Hopefully, anyone involved in the so-called treatment of homosexuality will realize that the medical profession considers them dangerous charlatans, and will reconsider their beliefs. I also sincerely hope that any vulnerable gay person who is unhappy about their sexuality takes notice of this motion and realizes that it is the world that needs to change, not them.

Atheist homosexuals.

It seems that most Gay / Lesbian people who grow up in a Christian family, drop the Christianity and adopt another religious or "spiritual path".

The question is why are gay people trading religion for another?

My frustration as a liberal, the first group of gay atheists [by name] I met were devotees of Ayn Rand, John Galt, Objectivism and Libertarian anti-government free market fundamentalism.

Pride parade can't be 'everything to everyone'
As ever, the perennial march for gay and lesbian rights was a colourful affair.

This year, some members of gay community find they’re not as united as they once thought

Greg McArthur

From Monday's Globe and Mail Published on Sunday, Jul. 04, 2010 6:59PM EDT Last updated on Monday, Jul. 05, 2010 8:01AM EDT

Under the canopy of a leafy tree, away from the blazing sun beating down on Church Street revellers, two gay men discover they’re not as united as they once thought.

The two friends, 63-year-olds Norm Galliford and Alek Nastajus, are asked about the controversial inclusion of the group Queers Against Israeli Apartheid in Sunday’s annual pride parade.

"Dealing with that political issue has nothing to do with being gay," Mr. Galliford says. "You can't be everything to everyone all the time."

Mr. Nastajus jumps in, pointing out that many heterosexuals supported gay rights when it wasn’t popular. Now that lesbians and gays are empowered, they have a duty to speak for people who need a voice, he says. "You're obliged to help others who need it."

This is the burden of success for Canada's homosexual community: They can get legally married across the country and are well protected by anti-discrimination policies and laws. Battles pop up from time to time, but the war is slowly reaching its end. And as a result, the soldiers are splintering off in all sorts of directions.

...

"I'm here to stand with the gay community and it's unfortunate that Middle East issues got dragged into this."
