The Best and the Worst


Even though neither is funny, here are two things you just have to see.  Apparently I’m feeling bossy today.

Click here to see pictures from a weekend Pride event in Uganda.  That’s right, Uganda, the country that for years has toyed with the idea of executing homosexuals.  Not really a climate that shrieks “Let’s party!” but these brave lesbians and gays turned out, out, out.

The other item I’m foisting upon you is a letter I first saw yesterday when PFLAG posted it.  In this missive a father disowns his son, precisely the reaction we fear most when we come out to family.  I can only hope the father comes to regret his words.
