PEOPLE
For four weeks we held discussion groups,
met one-on-one, solicited "unfriendly"
clergy, found straight allies, created a PFAG
and an Other Sheep East Africa chapter,
spoke live from a radio studio, met LGBT
activists, and distributed liturature.  It was
non stop -- rewarding and fun.

Unfortunately, you will not see the winsome
faces and smiles, the meditative looks, the
laughter and facial expressions of affection
and thanks; some gays can be open and they
are pictured here along with some straight
friends.
