We are motivated

by the world's oppression to offer one another the best parts of ourselves.  We can be friends.  What we want from one another is love, friendship, and shelter from the storm of the straight world.  We seek -- and we create -- community.  This communal movement, loosely called gay spirituality, is concerned with finding kindred spirits.
