    I heard a comment from a grandson who is frustrated that you can’t even have male friends now without being harassed as homosexual lovers. I think the constant media feed is not liberating anyone just tightening the knot more.

      Do you really think that a lack of media coverage of anti-LGBT abuses would be helpful, or am I not understanding your comment?

    Gosh! Your thought provoking contrast with the treatment of African Americas is stark. We talk about the benefits of coming out, even in extremely homophobic societies; knowing people who are LGBTI is one of the ways of reducing homophobia. Yet African Americans are already out! They generally can’t NOT be. While America is still a homophobic society – where isn’t? – despite all the advances in modern times, is it that racism is even more deep-seated than homophobia? Is it that racist Americans don’t really know any African Americans? And desperately want to keep it that way! Whereas they already know LGBTI people – whether they realize it or not; whether they like it or not. The glimmer of hope for LGBTI people in African countries is the rapidity with which attitudes changed in western countries: Ireland only decriminalised homosexuality in 1993 and already has equal marriage! I do not know where the glimmer of hope for African Americans is in the US.
