To all my fabulous bloggers and readers,
Thank you so much for all the wonderful words and concern shown to me for the past couple of days. I am now feeling much better already. You guys and gals are the greatest!
Even if I were not feeling better, I would have been after I came back from Frangipani yesterday night. Admittedly, it was my first time there and definitely won't be my last.
Though for personal reasons, my second visit won't be anytime soon.
I will probably write something about it soon.
Meanwhile, my previous post where I posted a letter from a Vermont mother seem to have elicited favourable response from you guys. You are welcome to post it in your blog if you want to.
I tried looking for the source or which site it was first published. A little Googling has shown that it actually appeared more than a year ago, in June 2004, in a PFLAG (Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays) of San Diego County's weekly alert.
Moving on. In one of the mailing groups I subscribed to, PLUPenang, someone posted on "A brief take on the history and evolution of gay movements: Its lessons and impact".
The author, CH, was one of my hiking mates to Mount Kinabalu, has spent quite a lot of time compiling the information. The result - a wonderful write-up on the subject which shows how much we, the gay community, have progressed and also how much still needs to be done.
There will be five parts in all and I shall post them under "A brief history of gay movements". Acknowledgement and credit goes to CH.
