Gay sensibility at Tax March
The best sign with a gay sensibility that I saw at the Saturday, April 15 Resistance Tax March, protesting the first president not to release his own tax returns, said: "I show you mine every year. Show me yours just this once!"

Not surprised at Chechnya
I came to America from the former Soviet Union, so I am not surprised about what is going on in today's Russia at all. If the Russian president is a killer, what are you going to expect from the butcher, Ramzan Kadyrov, who is the best friend of Vladimir Putin? Being a student of university I was just one time in Uzbekistan, where there were underground prisons to torture people, including gays. And when it was published in the newspaper, the answer from Uzbekistan was: This is what Islam is about.
So, I hope that this horrific news will not stop in Chechnya or even in Russia, but will go around the world to remember: it doesn't matter who you are, what is your name, your religion, race, education, social establishment, and where are you from, your life matters, today, tomorrow, forever.
