28. Thanks newyawker99 for the welcome.

Actually, I've been here a very long time. I just post very infrequently, although I'm very fond of this site. I spend most of my time reading latest breaking news items and others' comments.

My first goal is to help my gay and lesbian community here at DU, when I can, with anything that I can add to a discussion. Nothing, absolutely nothing, makes me prouder of this site than my fellow brothers and sisters. Although I've been offended by a LOT of comments from ignorant, straight DUers, I keep returning, hoping for understanding and bridges.

One thing that I have learned here is that, just as in politics, you have to keep repeating the same message, over and over and over and over again. For example, I keep seeing asinine statements that gay men have a choice, that, after I posted several statements to the contrary from the two leading mental health organizations, the American Psychological and Psychiatric Associations.

Anyway, thanks again for your warm welcome. Stay well.
