I've been observing and participating in the movement since I came out to myself and some carefully chosen friends in 1995!
I've seen sites come and go, but I'm glad this forum has continued. I learned allot about myself discussing and dreaming here. All that I really know is that it has been an uphill struggle and the hill is made of mud and it's raining.
The one person I miss is Furbydad. He was one of a kind.
As for Dissident, I would sometimes throw out imaginary scenarios and Diss would respond with answers I never even imagined. He had insight! He would have made a great writer.
I raise my glass to you. Here's to the good fight.
