M I S S I O N: Our vision and goal is to educate people about gay culture in order to promote mutual respect, harmony, tolerance and positive change.
A large number of gay people of both sexes, recall being strongly attracted to members of their own sex from a very early age. The best scientific evidence to date suggests that this fairly common talent is largely controlled by genetic or prenatal factors. This tendency comes in all degrees and in more than one form. Harry Stack Sullivan famously said that there were at least sixteen different personality configurations which straight society labels as "gay". Bisexuals would be just one of these. In this regard, gayness is very similar to the heterosexual orientation. For an excellent summary of the latest research in this area see: A Separate Creation by Chandler Burr.
