1. Proud2Be Guest Blogger : Zoe Lock

    A lovely piece from Devonshire writer Zoe Lock. Here she talks about her experience of some of the views she encountered about gay people whilst living in Kenya. Religion encompasses most of what Kenyans do in some way or another. For most of them it will lead their lives, some more devotedly than others. Some so much that they may go as far as to not love thy neighbour as thyself. In some hospitals in Kenya it has been known for patients to be refused treatment due to their sexual... Read more
  2. Proud2Be Post : Standing Up

    Proud2Be Project was out at Plymouth Pride last week spreading the Proud2Be message! Whilst our gang was sat in the park enjoying a picnic I decided to go for a mooch about with some business cards! I had a chat with most of the stall holders and made some great connections (I think they call it networking). I came to the police tent and immediately wondered if I should bother. I have never had anything to do with the police and if I am honest I wasn’t sure how they could help our project... Read more
  3. Equal Marriage : It’s Only Fair

    The Proud2Be Project supports equal marriage, mostly for the message it sends to society- that under the law same-sex couples are regarded as equal and deserving of the same rights as their straight brothers and sisters. Likewise we believe our straight brothers and sisters are deserving of the same rights. At this time only same-sex couples can enter into a civil partnership and only opposite-sex couples can enter into a civil and religious marriage. To us equality means civil and religious...

  4. Proud2Be Blog Post : Coming Out

    Proud2Be Post : Coming Out I have been thinking recently about coming out. More specifically my own coming out. I have come out as gay a number of times so far and I continue to do so every time I start a new job or meet somebody new. These days for me it is easy. Partly down to the fact that attitudes and beliefs are changing but mostly I think because I am no longer ashamed of who I am and have finally released the need to have others agree, accept or get on board with who I am. One... Read more
  5. Proud2Be Blog Post : Children and the messages that shape them

    Proud2Be Post: Children and the messages that shape them I was taught many things at school. I spent two hours a week for a good five years learning the French language. At the age of twenty nine I have to admit that I do not remember anything apart from bonjour and s’il vous plait. My Maths teacher went over and over Pythagoras’ theorem with me and I remember none of it, I even had to google the spelling. There is one thing I do remember about School. I seem to be reminded of it all... Read more
  6. Proud2Be Guest Blogger : Carol Price

    This is an article our Mother has written commenting on the church officials reaction to the ever growing support for equal marriage in the UK. We are so Proud2Be the sons of a courageous woman who has questioned the many messages about LGBT people she has received throughout her life and has chosen to reject prejudice rather than her two gay sons. She writes: How ironic that the church officials who, for centuries, have persecuted and vilified people for their sexuality, have preached and... Read more
