“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.”
I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality… I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word.
Like anybody, I would like to live a long life. Longevity has its place. But I’m not concerned about that now. I just want to do God’s will. And He’s allowed me to go up to the mountain. And I’ve looked over. And I’ve seen the promised land. I may not get there with you. But I want you to know tonight, that we, as a people will get to the promised land.

The Ghays get off of work in abundance and they alllll come to Atlanta to celebrate. It’s not called anything, but the promoters took it over and now there are a ton of gay events.
I guess you could call it a “mini-ghay pride”. ~ DramaDupree
