Hello, I'm Pete in Canada.
I found out about this site through Democratic Underground. The folks who started Soulforce are very brave and I salute them.
I'm a straight single white female who supports the GLBT cause, mostly because of some high school experiences. First, I had a couple of buddies who really suffered because the were considered "faggy looking". Second, I was a geeky kid, so I have some sense of what it's like to not fit in and feel that you have to hide who you are.
I am active in the New Democratic Party. My provincial section added a GLBT wing just this March. It's also for friends and allies of GLBT people. (Other provincial sections and the federal section have had GLBT wings for some years.) I went to the founding meeting, and they needed someone to be Secretary, so I was "drafted". It's a great honor to be on the first Executive of this organization.
One of the issues we are working on is harrassment and bullying in public schools.
Soulforce is a wonderful organization. Something like this would never have happened when I was in high school. I'm going to tell my GLBT buddies about Soulforce. I look forward to checking out the site and participating in discussions.
