|Message:||What a great site. I really like the set-up, almost like being invited to a friends house. I have already bookmarked it and plan to return quite a bit :)
also like the HAM :) (great paintings).
|Message:||I am heterosexual woman. However, I have alot of homosexual and lesbians friends, AND I LOVE THEM ALL! I was looking through your website because I wanted to find some information on Melvin Lindsay, and your's is the only one that had his picture on it. After I found that information, I read about more people and their contributions to the world. I find your website to be very informative and I commend you on the courage that you have and the "point blank" matter that you state your information. I just hope people one day realize that our sexual orientation does not label us, it is our character. Keep up the good work, I will visit your site often!|

|Message:||I am very impressed with your great efforts. what you have created is invaluable. Thank you. I'm a gay Canadian man battling HIV , but doing well.|
More importantly though, I resided in So. California during the early years of the AIDS epidemic (San Diego.) I have buried fifty-five men that I was privileged to call close friends.
I have also had three friends murdered through the years, because of sexual orientation. I am determined that the atrocities of history, recent and past, are never repeated. Again, I am amazed at your site, and will inform as many as possible of it's valued existence. I also had the privilege of seeing the Homomonument in Amsterdam a couple of years ago, along with touring the Anne Frank Museum. I took photos and made multiple copies to give to every gay organization in western Canada.
At the time, no one was aware of this monument to commemorate those who perished under the Third Reich. While we here in Canada are slowly progressing with issues of equality, it seemed to me that Europe was so far ahead of most of the world in this regard. Keep up the great work.
|Message:||Love your site - very inspirational. Keep up the good work boys!|
|Message:||I can never forget you, ever. Even if you are so far away, you are always inside my heart. The world is so cruel and often we cannot live what we feel because of other circumstances. But through this lifetime and beyond, there is something much much deeper that will always remain... Hope you are doing well and Merry Christmas!|

|Message:||Hello, I would like to say to the creators of this site, thank you. I read the memorial page, and I can't stop crying. Reading their stories is like reading my own. I grew up in a small town (pop. roughly 1000), and I am openly gay to my family. They are supportive but I am still afraid. Being gay here can get you killed. I move soon to go back to school closer to Nashville TN. I never think of suicide, I love my life and God made me this way so I am beautiful in his eyes. I just wanted to say thanks.|

|Message:||Tough living in part of the world where gays and lesbians are officially accepted (in the big cities anyway) there are also here still a lot of places and people and families that merely tolerate gays and lesbians (in public) but reject, judge and exclude them as soon as they don't have to worrie about exposure of their homophobia (in example when the gay-people concerned are youths or are isolated or just not assertive enough)... I myself am forced underground in my identity as gay wich is quite difficult sometimes and make me very angry and sad.|
Your site mde me cry because it shows that tere is something else then hatred and denial of homophobics on one hand and the pure commercial exploitation and merely sex-centered and indifference of the open and established gay-world as to be found in the big cities. Your site is a tribute to Love and respect (for oneself and others) and made me, for the first in a long long time, glad and proud to be gay. I'm very grateful for that.

|Message:||i'm an amateur artist...in oil paints, sketching and carvings. i have viewed the works of many artist over the years. koymasky is new to me and i cant imagine why i havent seen his work before now... Sorry... He should be ranked amongst the all the great artists in the world... but our homophobic worlds have probably prevented that. his relaxed approach to the nude youth male body is so awesome. he knows anatomy so well... and portraits it with such a relaxed perspective. all of these youth are friends; there is no implied sexual relationship in his paintings; it is only up to the viewer of his works to interpt the paintings meaning. these can be boys who are friends who are so close that their nudity and naked state is "just the way i am"... and just the way you are and just the way we all are, in Gods own image. friends.... best friends.... buddies.... lovers.... AND Komasky was such a revolutionary for his times. certainly his works must have caused some squinted eyes in his times..... On the other hand, who could resist to view how beautiful his paintings are!?!?!?!!!!!!!!! if one has any appreciation for the beauty of a flower or a rainbow or a sunset or the stars in our sky... then one can only admit to how beautiful the human body is!!! such innocence and yet such relaxed sexual expression is so awesome!!! i only wish i could have met such an awesome man with such awesome talent. he really has greatness in my mind. i am so glad to have found him on this site. thank you for letting me view his wonderful works!!!!!!|

|Message:||My admiration and deepest appreciation of your magnanimus gesture in creating this Memorial of our martyred friends.
I am fowarding copies of your website to the Governor of Louisiana the Honorable Ms. Kathleen Babineaux Blanco. News break August 18, 2004, she says because of her Catholic upbringing she believes that Marraige is a Sacrament between a man and a woman only. So she will probably vote YES on the Louisiana Amendment #1 banning Gay and Lesbian marriages. This a poll going out to all Louisiana citizen to vote on in September. I am trying to convince her that the issue of "Civil marriage" is an institution of the State, where as the Sacrament of Marriage" in as intitution of various religious denomination. Thus church and state issues should remain seperate. The message I am trying to convey to all the our founding forefather drafted the Bill of Rights of the United States Constitution with the heart of the language being rooted in civility and ethics seperate from the Christian language of dictates of morality and rule by Theocracy.
I hope to convince her with the pages of horrible histories from your website that "Religious fervor/fever/passion" is indeed the root to all of the killing and murders and suicides of Bodies and Souls of her citizens. It is my hope that it is not to late for her to change her mind and also my hope that she will encourage her constituency to vote NO on the Amendment #1.
You have my deepest thanks for your remarkable work. I know there are thousand of untold tragedies out there waitng to be added to your memorial wall.
However depressing it may seem to do this work, I hope that you will be sustained to continue to channel yours and our grief and anger to constructively memorialize the our martyres of HATE. All hidden travestpies must be revealed and told and never forgotton.
Sincerely with best regards and love,

|Message:||Did you know that you were created to have a loving relationship with God? He is patiently and lovingly waiting for you to respond to His invitation to salvation. Yes, you can receive forgiveness for your sins and assurance of eternal life through faith in His only Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. "God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved" (John 3:16-17). "Now this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent" (John 17:3).|

|Message:||I LOVE YOUR WEBSITE. Thanks for bringing such intelligence and beauty to a site.
|Message:||The website is simply great. I'm wondering if Koymasky is a Polish surname? Anyway it's a pleasure to finally find a gay site without any pornographic pictures. Actually I don't know why I was even looking for any gay websites but I recently met a guy, I know he's gay and I like him very much (more then a friend). He's amazing but I also know that he's in love with somebody else, but they are not together. Now I don't know what to do. If he loves someone else then probably I shouldn't even flirt with him. But he is my perfect match. I mean he likes the same things, we understand each other perfectly!!! Anyway, sorry for my problem sharing. The site is really great!!!|
