And who says black gay men aren't doing anything? We are making moves, baby, from the US to FRANCE to AFRICA. Ain't no stopping ...

Rod...THANK YOU!!

I am one of those readers "across the pond"...London by way of Ghana...and appreciate any stories and positivity of black gay men!...It is difficult finding our images overseas. I appreciate it enormously...

Another reason we love you so much. Or at least I do.

Rod

What is French for "YOU Go boy?" lol

Rowan

Ha Rod!

In france they say, 'On a gangner'.

Whict translates to 'we have won' BUT said by the french translates to 'you go boy' etc. It's also the most well known!

(I used to speak French, coming very young from a french speaking country but growing up in the uk!)

i love this story thank you

Ralph Davis

Remarkable. A black man and woman, gay and straight, working together to find homophobia. I love it!

John

Great article...and blacks historically, have been on the forefront of movements like this, including Bayard Rustin. But interestingly enough, USA didn't sign it.

Thank you Rod for including this on your blog. For a couple of years, I have been backing the idea of Louis-Georges Tin to get a statement against homophobia and transphobia read at the United Nations.

While it is fantastic that Louis-Georges' "dream" became reality a couple of days ago, it is a very sad fact that he was "cut out" of the publicity distributed by the Non-Governmental Organisations.

At a United Nations "forum", immediately following the reading of the Statement, Louis-Georges made a short speech, and ended by bursting into song - a chorus of "We Shall Overcome". Not that is definately "style" ... A class act!

Fortunately, the United Nations videoed this. Go to http://webcast.un.org/ramgen/ondemand/specialevents/2008/se081218pm1.rm to relive Louis-Georges' address and song, which comes 1 hour and 5 minutes into the video.

Again, thanks Rod for "telling it like it is" and giving totally justifiable credit to an extrordinary Frenchmam who works tirelessly for LGBT human rights around the world.

I love this!! Thanks Rod! Rowan and Rod(the other one), On a gagné, indeed! Still have a long way to go though!!

An English translation of Louis-Georges's French-language book, The Dictionary of Homophobia, was recently published.

Mario

How strange!!! I never heard this piece of news on french TV networks! Did they forget it?! Tin is from Martinique and they never mentioned his UN speech. Very strange, indeed!

Hello,

Both homosexuals and straight persons might appreciate what I shared in my lastest post 12/20 in Curtis' Expectations. It takes note of the circumstances of children adopted by gay couples and about 12/10/08.

But why would gay people be turning to the United Nations for help? When this organization was unable to stop serious conflicts and wars-it is odd, can you explain?
If you visit my other blog site, Curtis On The News. I had began a monthly series about the United Nations beginning in December, 2008. There are related videos to watch. I hope the blog posting may be enlighting and a benefit to you.
Regards,
Curtz
