      I think it would be great if the international gay community organized some fundraiser so our friends can get their asses away from those homophobes.

      Wish I had won the Power Ball; I’d charter a plane to pick them up and take them anywhere they want. Wingnuts, homophobes and bashers rant about how weak and sissified we gays are, yet these two men exemplify courage and strength. Bless them and keep them safe.

      So sad. These 2 people ( and many, many more GLBT Africans)are trapped with no financial resources to escape their homophobic/ transphobic environment. I can relate to some degree having grown up as an effeminate man (later to become a female) in the Deep South. It’s obvious that the President of Malawi was bribed in order to release these two. I’m sure his Swiss/ offshore bank account just got a hefty deposit. Sad that he will benefit financially from his hateful ways. I say Stop all financial aid to African countries that persecute GLBT people. You will see a major cultural change toward GLBT people if the foreign money dries up. I think this also should apply to Carribbean countries. Stop taking cruises to Jamaica, Dominican Republic, Bahamas etc. until they get their minds right and acxtively pursue the GLBT business. Too many other nice places to go that support our community.

      Newsflash… they aren’t two men, they’re a man and a woman. A transgender woman is a woman, period.

      Update:

      Tiwonge Chimbalanga is missing from her village where she was dropped off after leaving prison. They are unsure if she’s in hiding, trying to leave Malawi or been attacked.
