Welcome to Gay / LGBTQI Atheists & friends!

I will be taking a reduced role at Atheist Nexus as of Oct 1, 2017. I will not be moderating this group after that time, and I will be re-zeroing most of my groups and comments.

That will leave this group without a moderator. Since this group was started by a member who hasn't visited Nexus for many years, it is not possible to select or designate a moderator. Instead, I will send notification to Br. Richard that the group will be without a moderator. It will then be up to him to decide how to proceed.

Since this is a popular group, I recommend that a member start up a new group for quotations, so that the members can continue adding and reading their favorite quotes.

Thanks and happy reading!
Daniel W

Daniel, I thank you for the Gay Muslim marriage in UK, although I could not hear a word. I tried several different things to get the audio; nothing worked. 

The beautiful garments and flowers looked splendid. I tried to read lips or imagine what they said, but could not.

Thank you, Carl, for that lovely interview between a young and elder man. The questions and answers moved me, both in their honesty with each other, and their clarity of experience.

Carl, thanks for posting.  That's really important.  I often feel like the younger generation doesn't seem to comprehend, or respect, us oldsters.

Gay Muslim marriage in UK.  Actually, they don't look all that happy about it.

It's always important to remember our past and to make sure it's not forgotten.

One of my all-time favorite novels, Earthly Powers by Anthony Burgess, opens in Malta with one of the best first sentences I've run across:

It was the afternoon of my eighty-first birthday, and I was in bed with my catamite when Ali announced that the archbishop had come to see me.

Conservative, Catholic,tiny Malta, to legalize gay marriage.   I always thought it would be cool to visit Malta, because it is so tiny and obscure, and in the middle of the Mediterranean

Interesting story in The Guardian about Mae West getting into trouble for her play about gay male sexuality in the 1920s.  "The Drag was inspired by her many gay friends. She knew their daily struggles to be open about their relationships, and to be accepted for who they were. When casting the play, she actively sought out gay actors."

In Germany - Im surprised!  Merkel has long opposed marriage equality, and still does.  But most Germans are in favor. I guess there are still some legal hurdles but maybe it will go smoothly.  I hope so.  German persecution of LGBT people leaves a lot to forgive. Ning wanted to go there and visit my ancestral villages, but I have not expressed enthusiasm for that.  Largely because of German culture and attitudes.

Andrew I agree with you about distrusting the offer.  Anyway. emigrating us one thing.  Immigrating is another.  A country must accept you.  California is a state.  Can a state issue a green card?  I feel very bad for our kindred spiritds elsewhere.

This would be a truly good focus for activism.
