Just as a bit of information - there is in the United States an organizational called "Dignity/USA". It is a national organization with groups of local chapters throughout the various states headquartered in Boston. It is a support group for the Catholic GLBTQ community founded in San Diego in 1969. If you are Catholic and belong to the GLBTQ community check it out in your local area. You might find it interesting. And if you are in anyway Christian or just spiritual in orientation ... guess what ... being gay or lesbian or transgender or transexual or meta-sexual is cool! It's a nice group of people who have get together and have formed a caring and supportive community. (There is also a variation of the organization in Canada.) So YES - Dignity for all.

Is it dignified to pick men up in toilets where there might be children present?
