Hello and welcome to *Alive N Proud*. This community is for any gay and lesbian who wants to express themselves. Anyone is welcome to join here and invited to share their words. In fact, I would love everyones inputs. Please feel free to share your poetry, songs, love, loss, and stories. No one is going to discriminate here. I will personally make sure of that. Instead, I hope to build friendships and trust that will last for years to come. This is now your community as well as mine. Here we have a safe groud to just express ourselves and not worry about being judged. We can be proud here because we should be able to be proud. We are who we are. So dont let anyone stop you from being *Alive and Proud* whether anyone or no one is around.
