Boston. Always wanted to visit, now more than ever. Way to go Mayor Menino!

SB, I really don't know much more about them, but I will tell Cindy what you said about the preacher. Really trying to help her out with this with info. Thanks.

Steph, thanks, but this is no big thing. Just want to help her with resources for this incident, and future ones that I know will arise.

Tony I hope you are able to help them out. It's really nice what you are doing for them.

Tony, for that situation you were right to look into PFLAG.  It's by far the best.  After that, if they are religious, it depends on their denomination.  If it is supportive, they can talk to their pastor - such as Unitarians.  If it is not supportive, I would not advise that.

Hey SB, have to be somewhat circumspect, but a client of hers (teenager) had an incident where he came out to his parents due to a bullying incident, and his parents were very upset, confused, and bewildered. They were asking her about sites for them to visit, groups to check out, other parents to contact. Even in their confusion, she told me they wanted to support their son. Now, this is a smaller town we live in, and as far as I know, no groups here or anywhere except Dallas. She is trying to find resources for these people and others when it comes up again, and it will. She talks to me about things like this and others things, also. She knows my feelings on matters like this. She gets no support or help from other social workers here with stuff like this. What I'm trying to help her with is just general info, how to make contact on the internet to sites, groups, etc. Anything will help, and she can build a data base, hopefully, for the future. That is all really. Hope I'm making sense, my friend. Not looking for news sites per se, but sites for support of the family and individuals, if you know what I mean. Appreciate it. I've been trying to find stuff myself, and finding it hard slogging. But, will keep at it. Thanks again. Any help will be appreciated.

Tony, I don't know what kind of resources are available.  It would depend on what someone's need are, and even then I probably don't know.  Legal issues or discrimination issues might best be dealt with via ACLU.  It really depends on what kind of problem there is.

Hey there Tony!

Comment by Tony Carroll on July 18, 2012 at 8:00pm

Hey guys. One of the case managers at the hospital I work at needs some help. She needs resources. As in web sites she can direct people to for LGBTQI help. I am totally inadequete at what I know. I told her about the PFLAG site, and GLADD site, but I don't know much else beyond that. So, my friends, if you could please send some info, I will make sure she gets it to help her clients and families. Thanks in advance, Tony. Be well.

It's absolutely no surprise that neo-conservative groups from the US are behind anti-gay lobbying in Europe.  The same thing has been going on in Uganda for years.  The Box Turtle Bulletin blog (www.boxturtlebulletin.com) has meticulously documented the hateful actions and influence US christian evangelicals have had on African countries, especially in Uganda.  A very lethal combination of African superstitious belief and evangelical christianity has resulted in a literal death sentence for the LGBT community.  Blogger Jim Burroway from Box Turtle Bulletin should definitely be worthy of a nomination for some kind of journalistic award for his tireless documentation of the horrible situation in Africa.

Thanks for all the article links - I will have to get caught up on my news.
How's everyone doing this weekend?
