Afrol News, a Norwegian news service that monitors Africa, reports "dozens of Senegalese homosexuals have fled to ... The Gambia and Mali to escape the looming threats on their lives. [However] Gambia may not be a safe hideout for homosexuals, considering President Yahya Jammeh's personal hatred of homosexuality. He had earlier threatened to crush any act of homosexuality in the country."
As previously reported on Rod 2.0, the president of The Gambia has also been criticized by the world community for sensational claims that he can "cure" HIV/AIDS.
Last week, riot police were forced to disperse tear gas at hundreds of anti-gay protesters who rioted outside Dakar's largest mosque. The crowds, led by influential Muslim cleric and lawmaker Imam Mbaye Niang, were outraged after the arrest and release of five men accused of participating in a same-sex wedding.
Senegal is a predominantly Muslim country and, although only rarely enforced, homosexual acts are prohibited under law. In recent weeks, clerics are demanding a roundup of any known homosexuals as the nation will host some 40 heads of state and prominent religious leaders at the 11th summit of the Organization of the Islamic Conference on March 8 to 14 in Dakar.
Dakar will also host the International Conference on AIDS and STIs in Africa in December 2008. Some analysts believe the arrests were a potential source of embarrassment for a nation which boasted one of Africa's few official HIV/AIDS plans targeting men who have sex with men.

And the Winner is Is?: The Academy Awards have been handed out and the winners have taken their statues to the house, but It's Mike Huckabee who should get the "I'm telling you, I'm not going" award for his presidential bid for the GOP nomination. To my amazement and almost everyone else in the universe, it's clear that the Huckster is going to extend his death grip on his national exposure until the bitter end. Debate or no debate with front runner or should I say most likely nominee, John McCain. On each occassion that he's been quizzed about his unshakeable stance Mr. Huckabee stays the course on the fact that McCain hasn't reached the magic number needed to affirm his lock on the nomination. Meanwhile, Huck's comebacks have come neatly wrapped within some his homespun banter or colorful, yet perplexing rational, thusly denying that he's campaigning for a VP spot on the ticket. What does the man want? If not a VP spot, how about a cable reality show...Being Huck? or talk show...The Mike and Janet Crusade Hour or how about a stint on the lecture circut spreading the good word message to all who will pay to listen. Anyway the Mike "can you hear me now" Huckabee caravan rolls on and on and on and... you get the picutre.
Forclosing Michael : Just like a Phoenix rising from Eygyptian ashes, so does the icon of pop, Michael Jackson. His current music compilation, Thriller: 25 is based on much of his best selling catalog complete with DVD footage. But I hope that his sales soar as news breaks that his beloved, Neverland will be going on the auction block next month if the gloved one doesn't pony up $24 Million still owed on the estate. You would think that with all the cash flow MJ has had over the years that this place would have been paid for lock, stock and barrel. However, those pesky trials, high powered attorney's and cash pay outs probably needed some hefty collateral. I can't help but think, "what's the monthly mortage on $24 Million anyway?" Golly gees, has it been that long since I stood in the back room of the Discovery Club waiting for the national debut of his ground breaking video on it's "big screen" TV. At the time, I marveled at the this large screen presentation as it captured the essence of something special, as well as a tour de force performer to be reckoned with for decades to come. Nontheless, Jackson has always been a favorite of mine withstanding all the other "wacko-jacko" tags or antics that he's been plagued with over the years. Remember Emmanuel Lewis, Lisa Marie Presely or Debbie Roe? Yet, his creative blend plus laser beam ability to engulf himself in his music has thrilled me for years both on the dance floor and off. I read with great interest his December 07 interview in Ebony, which was "very vintage Michael." He seemed in full control of his image, candid, and thought provoking while still continuing to fascinate me as the enigma that he's always embodied. I would love to share a pelligrino or hell, even a Bud with MJ and the kids any old time. Have your peeps contact, my peeps. I'll buy since you might be playing catch up on the rent.

Obama on the Brain: Just for a minute, I had to sign off the political radar and take a deep breath. I might take in some of tonights showdown debate as Hillary takes it to the mat in this "do or die" title match. I don't know about you, but Obama-Mania seems to be running amuck and taking flight into some other kinda omeba. As I was watching one his recent televised rallies, I was awe struck at the heighten vigor, mesmerized attendees and tear stained faces of onlookers whom seem transfixed into a state of stooper once the candidate took to the stage. I realized that most of the electorate is in a "ABB,"(Anbody But Bush) mindset, but in my opinion it seems that the bouncing "O" could recite the alphabet and folks would literally give him a standing ovation. Even though the country certainly could use a change of leadership, I'm hesitant to believe that even a Obama presidency would deliver all that's expected or that's needed in this beleaguered land. I love "change" but change to what? And how long will it take to make this change and what will it cost across the board. O.K. "Yes we can!" Can what? We can propel a candidate into the White House and hope that they can unlock congressional gridlock, find solutions to the foreclosure debacle, wrestle the healthcare titans into submission resulting in universal health care and meanwhile singing Kum By Ya with the rest of world. Boy it all seems like a tall order for a 4 year stint for anyone. No matter how tested, vetted or experienced. I'm fastening my seat belt, because it's going get really bumpy...

Pride in the City Update: In previous post I reported that this years' Pride activites would be cancelled and such. Also,there had been inquires as to the status of those funds raise prior to that announcement. Board member Joe L set the record straight with a comment( which is posted) asserting that the funds would be divested to the Arkansas AIDS Foundation earmarked for HIV testing. O.K. now that that's cleared up, it seems that there are plans for Pride activites in Fayetteville and the yet as unannounced yearly Conway festival. But, despite an unofficial organizational blow out, I feel confident that area watering holes will set in motion their own brand of celebrations and you never know what CorneliusOnpoint will be up to. Or you can get your pride on in Vancouver, Pittsburgh, Hotlanta, Nashiville, St. Louis, Dallas or make your own pride statement.
In a statement the groups said that the effort will be non-partisan. It is aimed at "growing the pool of openly LGBT professionals who would be qualified and ready to accept politically appointed positions in the next presidential administration."
"Our goal is to make sure all Americans have an equal voice in their government," said Chuck Wolfe, president of GLLI.
The Presidential Appointments Project will identify, recruit and vet openly LGBT applicants for thousands of executive branch positions that will be filled with political appointees after the next president is sworn in the organization said in the statement.
GLLI worked with the second Clinton administration to identify gays and lesbians who were qualified to serve the president.
Potential appointees who are openly LGBT can submit an application through a special Web site created for the project: www.glli.org/presidential
Got Info...Need to share?... then get about it and click the comment icon to let's us know what your thinking. Have you Chipped IN yet? why not...Do it today. It's a safe and secure platform to show your pride.

DL in SGL Community on Blast: Only if we were so lucky to have a ground swell of support for more arty expressions from the local black SGL community. Not to mention an outcry for something more than a club night or house party. O.K. maybe that's asking too much, or is it? Well, of course not. Now you ask, what does all this mean? It's the lack of alternatives that I've been hearing about from various individuals who say they wished we had more variety. Usually with pronouncements such as this, I start banging my head and my eyes start to fall back in my head. Yes, wouldn't it be wonderful if somehow the local black SGL culture could support more options than just a club night. I've got a novel idea, how about screening the new controversial movie, "Cover," from veteran director Bill Duke? Apparently, this movie packed the house during it's run during the 16th Annual Pan African Film and Arts festival held in L.A. and has been the subject of much chatter surrounding it' s treatment of that troublesome phenom known as the "Down Low." The film stars Aunjanue Ellis, Razaaq Adoti, Vivica A. Fox, Richard Gant, Mya, Louis Gossett, Jr., Leon, Paula Jai Parker, Roger Guenveur Smith, Patti LaBelle and Obba Babatunde, "Cover" tells the story of Ryan Chambers (Leon) who is murdered on New Year's Eve, the prime suspect is Valerie Maas (Aunjanue Ellis), a church-going homemaker whose life unravels when she discovers that her husband (Razaaq Adoti) of 15 years has been leading a double life. Her strength of character and faith keeps the family alive as a deadly disease threatens to destroy all that they have known. Sounds like a something to see? Probably so, only if we had a viewing audience who would solidly support such an effort, purchase advance tickets and be open to this type of programming. In the meantime, I've posted the trailer to give you some flavor of what's going on elsewhere among other progressive brother's and sister's whom are creating culture for themselves.
Community Center Concept: Since we are on the subject of novel ideas...across my in-box came some interesting speculation about a local GLBTQI community center in the greater Little Rock area. The idea is the brainchild of a few locals who believe that the time has come for such an entity to exisit although the actual "brick and mortar" portion would follow an online counseling concept that in a start up phase as well. According to group postings the organizers are in search of board members, funders, and volunteers. If you really want more info, you'll have to hit me with a E-note and I'll get you the hook up.
A delegating we Go: Have you Chipped IN today? Well, if you haven't, I've launched a little widget to help us in our funding quest to offset expenses as a delegate to the 2008 Democratic Convention in Denver, Aug. 25-28. I received my info packet and I'm poised for balloting in the District/Special Convention being held March 8 in Little Rock. The DNP has mandated a diversity platform stance and Arkansas' delegation will reflect that position. With that said, I'll still have to sway those other electors that I would make a good choice and represenative from the Natural State in the election process culminating in November's smackdown. The DNC Delegate fund is devised to help defer travel expenses such as ground transportation, per diems and lodging. It's easy as 1-2-3-... Click on the icon, follow prompts, and show your proud donation. I want to thank the first contributor for that $20 spot, I appreciate it. I opened the mail recently and to my suprise there was another donation. Got some frequent flyer miles to donate? Want to hold a funding soiree? Let's get creative! Can I count on you today?

Manifesto: A Cause for Life
By Doug Cooper- Spencer
Growing up gay is a challenge. From the day you first realize your difference, you immediately draw strategies of defense. Those measures can range anywhere from outright confrontation to secrecy and denial. Ostensibly, secrecy is usually the easiest road to take.
In an often hostile world that refuses to validate your existence, being gay or lesbian quite often requires giving up modes of self-validation and refuting self-worth. In the process, discourse that affirms a homosexual existence is usually lost, especially if those matters posit topics that affirm our humanity and our spiritual existence. In response to such challenges, I have offered this manifesto.
I assert that my homosexuality is no more exclusive than difference in height, or those who might have a natural tendency towards obesity as compared to some who cannot for the life of them gain weight. It is no different than those who are born to function primarily with their left hand while others cannot function with hands at all; or those who have near incomparable physical strength and those whose frailty allowed them to live only for a day.In nature’s tendency towards diversity we have been given people whose minds mainly grasp abstractions while others, logic. It is the will of the force of nature that deals in diversity, just look around at the different races that people this planet. If nature can offer such diversity, why then would it not offer homosexuality as a complement to its course? My homosexuality is no less an aberration than merely difference.
I reject the notion that my ‘difference’ causes pain. The pain is caused by ignorance, fear and bias, not my sexual nature. It’s the same pain that once made some cry out that the physically challenged be thrown to the wolves, or that the existence of other races be the agent behind social woes.Sadly, it’s never the pain brought on by my detractors’ own social or personal maladies that is investigated. Instead they choose to make others the source of their discomfort. Quite often, people will form fragile matrixes in which to house their own short comings.
As well, I refuse to allow my detractors to lump me in the category of rapists and molesters. Rapists and molesters harm. Heterosexual and homosexual rapists and molesters cause harm, not heterosexuality and homosexuality in and of themselves.
I refuse to believe my sexual orientation is unnatural. My homosexual orientation developed as a course of nature, it was not artificially induced. Therefore it is natural. Quite often, what is meant by those who use the terms, ‘unnatural’, or ‘not normal’, is that my sexual orientation does not match that person’s moral beliefs, just as it was used decades ago in matters of interracial marriage.That stated, I understand the implications of such an argument go further than it appears. It underscores the reasoning that homosexuality is a matter of choice (in that case, why not heterosexuality as well?). It’s the implication that since it is choice and not of nature, it is not of God; therefore it can be (and should be) undone.Only I know the depth and history of my feelings and I know it was not by choice. Only I know this, and I do not owe anyone else an explanation unless I choose to do so. Given the pain of disenfranchisement, even death that many of my sisters and brothers go through in life, I doubt many would have ‘chosen’ such a life. However, I say to them all love who you are just as you love the skin you’re in. It is the gift God gave you. It’s called Life. Yours.
Regarding morality. We think of morality as inflexible codes of conduct. But, in fact, our moral precepts are not so inflexible, they can be very pliant. History has shown us that. For instance, the difference between the moral standards that once viewed women as an adjunct to men, or ones that supported the belief of the inferiority of black people to whites are vastly different than moral standards of today. Morality can be used to protect and enlighten in the most divine way, or it can be actualized as an agent of great harm and destruction. Therefore, I will only accept those things in life that do not harm others or myself, and ones that nurture and create a positive energy for me and my environment. So unless it can truly be proven that being gay works against this positive force, I will embrace it with the warmth it deserves no matter what others might think.
God and religion. God is an abstract concept that humankind has honed to explain phenomena such as being, death and circumstance; inexplicable matters that govern life. There are many views, all of which claim divine providence.To say the concept of God is an abstraction is not to say It doesn’t exist. I, for one, believe God does exist. It’s just that our ability to fully understand God is greatly lacking. It is very difficult to understand something that cannot be fully realized as fact.Even to the point that we have come to apply anthropomorphic terms to describe God speaks of our desire to come to terms with It. In the end, we can only come to terms with It, not explain It. We cannot explain or understand something so powerful, so infinite as God. Beyond it all, this is where faith comes into play. So many people profess to have faith when all they really have is belief. Someone once described belief as wishing things to be as you are told they should be, and faith as a letting go of expectation, to be able to throw your arms open and accept what is not known or understood. Our beliefs are shaped by cultural, political and to some degree, personal influence, but very little faith. Belief taught me fear, but now, my faith informs me of love.Finally, regarding God, I cannot leave this discussion without addressing the idea that God does not condone homosexuality. I challenge such a notion to be proven. If God is omniscient, then He knew I was going to be gay.
I do not accept the idea of free will as an explanation of my homosexuality. That would be akin to accepting the argument of ‘choice’. Even the idea of free will as grace from God is arguable if it is set within the context of retribution. If God punishes us for our choice then free will was not given out of grace. I do not believe a divine entity that possesses omnipotence has need for free will. It would simply control what we do, not allowing us to fail, and would therefore not resort to retribution.
I refuse beliefs, borne, again, of culture and politic. I choose a faith that liberates me from such precepts and simply embraces the idea that everyone has the right to become self actualized towards a spirit that causes no harm to self or others, a nurturing spirit. Therefore, I choose to walk a spiritual path (stumbling sometimes as humans do), than a religious one. The two are not the same because religion is man-made and is prone to all the influences I stated above, while spirituality is the essence of God. Many seek religion (earthly power), but few seek spirituality.
Homosexuality and family. I refuse to believe homosexuality causes the destruction of the family and shuns procreation. First of all, if a family is firmly entrenched in love it will not allow the fact that one of its members is gay destroy it. If it does, then it needs to re-evaluate its shortcomings because matters of diversity as well as adversity will always arise within the family structure. That is the challenge of love.
I do not believe if those of us who are homosexual act on our nature, then everyone will become homosexual and procreation would cease. Everyone would not become homosexual if someone who is homosexual chooses to live his or her life. Humans are not that monolithic. Besides, if procreation is the prime reason for the validation of existence, then we are all in step to miss the fullness that makes us human. I believe the positive growth of our individual spirit (one imbued in love) is the prime agent of our individual lives, not the extension of the physical self. And given our tenuous relationship with the ecosystem, adoption would be a suitable fit.The propagation of life is a powerful force. We do not know that sexual intercourse is exclusively needed to procreate. All living beings don’t engage in sexual intercourse in order to procreate. Therefore, we should not assume humans, if given the fate of the cessation of intercourse would no longer generate offspring. Quite possibly it could happen through cellular division as it does in some life species on this planet. In a world that has offered the Immaculate Conception, such a notion is tenable.A final word about family; it has long been high time to redefine the concept of ‘family’. It’s been done before (for example, the Industrial Revolution), so why not again? The strongest glue to hold together a family is love.
I accept Love to be: “The will to extend one’s self for the purpose of nurturing one’s own or another’s spiritual growth.” (M. Scott Peck, ‘The Road Less Traveled’). I will love myself and seek this kind of love from others. I will demand it so I might know it. I have all the right in the world to seek the nurturance of my spirit free from the whims of others. I reject the games people play in their attempt to gain dominance over my life; it’s been done to many throughout the ages. I understand that when you learn to love yourself, you are able to love others, and you grow beyond the borders of religious doctrine and demagoguery towards a true spiritual journey. You become open to wondrous things about your life, about Life period. You become the person God meant you to be. This I understand. This I accept.In the end, I accept that the brilliance of ‘The Mystery’ we call Life will probably always continue, and will probably never be understood. And that ‘The Mystery’ is not as scary as it might sound. It is fear that holds most of us captive to lives of trepidation, hatred and inconsequence, not love.
This I accept.

The Family Council is now collecting signatures to enact another mean spirited and discriminatory law against LGBTQ and some straight Arkansans... national political picture is certainly of serious consideration. ..but what does it take to get folks moving and working for their own rights right here???
Neither group, this one or the lesbian group has touched this issue when I have posted it. It's hard for me to believe that almost 300 people are completely apathetic to their own rights...many of us may not want to adopt or provide foster care, that's fine...but if this passes, it's another nail in our ever having equal rights...and it's a good bet they will use this law as a precedent on custody cases where one parent is lesbian or gay....
yes, life is busy, sometimes downright hard, brutal and difficult... and it's true that justice efforts have never been easy...it takes time and committment, it takes money...but, is it really true that no one reading this cares about stopping Jerry Cox???
sometimes it feels like beating my head on a brick wall

Members of Arkansas Families First will be at polling sites in more than 20 Arkansas communities to educate voters about why they should refuse to sign petitions for the proposed ballot initiative that restricts foster-care and adoption of parentless and neglected children. I early voted and didnt' see any of this activity, but I saw an E-blast seeking volunteers to place yard signs and other participation. At this posting, I haven't heard about any results, but we will update as soon as we get an update.
"In today's world there are too many threats on the well being of our state's children, too many children in need of healthy and loving foster and adoptive homes" said Dr. Eddie Ochoa, President of the Arkansas Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics. "The federal government has continued to criticize our state for the shortage of adoptive and foster care homes. We can't afford to limit the number of stable homes for kids in need or to let kids fall through the cracks when there are qualified and caring households with open doors to serve."
Jennifer Ferguson of Arkansas Advocates for Children and Families added that, "the reality is that we already have too many children without good homes, and this proposal will leave even more children waiting for a loving home. We hope Arkansans will decline to sign the petitions for this ill-conceived and harmful initiative."
Arkansas Families First is a statewide grassroots organization created to advocate on behalf of children. It includes the Arkansas chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics, the Arkansas Chapter of the National Association of Social Workers, the Inter Faith Council, Arkansas Advocates for Children and Families, and Just Communities of Central Arkansas, the Arkansas Psychological Association, the ACLU of Arkansas, the Arkansas Public Policy Panel, the Center for Artistic Revolution, and the Stonewall Democrats.

In an effort to share the dearth of information available around HIV/AIDS and African Americans/Blacks, CorneliusOnpoint is sharing the information from the Black AIDS Day portal which has uploaded to their server or provided links to key publications and reports that assist in providing a backdrop to the HIV/AIDS crisis in Black America and other parts of the world. After checking their website, and surveying area organizations, I am proud to announce that this forum will be one of the few local mediums to acknowledge Black HIV/AIDS Day 2008 in Arkansas. What's up with that? Where's the step up or is this just more of the disconnect/complacency attitude that continues to grip the local Black GLBTQ community? Hello-Somebody? Anybody?

National Black History Month 2008 -
Artist Hubert Sam created this years image which depicts the National Theme for Black History Month 2008 "Carter G. Woodson and the Origins of Multiculturalism". Known as the "Father of Black History," Carter G. Woodson holds an outstanding position in early 20th century American history. Woodson authored numerous scholarly books on the positive contributions of Blacks to the development of America. He also published many magazine articles analyzing the contributions and role of Black Americans. He reached out to schools and the general public through the establishment of several key organizations and founded Negro History Week (precursor to Black History Month). His message was that Blacks should be proud of their heritage and that other Americans should also understand it.
Just how much is a Trillion Dollars anyway? Does anyone really know? President Bush has submitted a budget with so many "zero's" that most folks, including myself are wondering "what in the world is he thinking?" Or better yet, what in the world are we all thinking that a 400 Billion Dollar( yes that's with a "B") plus- plus deficit is just simply, alrighty. What's really eye opening is that this mega- budget doesn't even include the upcoming "economic stimulus" plan with all those other dead presidents to flood the economy. All I can say is, Wow!
