|Message:||I came across your website in my pursuit of gay fiction and really enjoyed the several stories I read from the first shelf of your library (the other shelves seem to be off limit to the casual visitor). But then the site is much more than stories, I was impressed by the visual attractiveness and the variety and richness of the material available. Thanks... I enjoyed visiting over the past few weeks.|

|Message:||G'day, Matt and Andrej!|
I stumbled across your site whilst searching for some info on Wilhelm von Gloeden of Taormina photography fame.
Came for a few minuts and stayed for a few hours; it's now way past my bedtime!
What a wealth of information you have here! I shall have to return for further browsing - and to sample some of Andrej's stories. You never know - I might decide to offer my editing services to your cause (being, as I am, a professional verbivore).
Best wishes from this DownUnder gay man! :-)

Thank you so much for the fantastic site! I found you in my search for photos of gay holocaust victims. I am working on an art project and would like to know if you or any of your viewers can help me find high resolution camp photos of victims. All I am finding online are very small.
Any help would be appreciated and I would be happy to send you a photo of the final project!

|Message:||Guys, congratulations on your superb website. Of course I haven't seen it all yet, that will take days. I just love your Jean Cocteau drawings which lead me to this place in the first place. I really do think that your gay site is the most sensual of all that I have been able to see so far but, whereas they are usually so,so yours is great,great. I'd like to gather a lot of other materials for you to add to what you already have placed here, things from Leonardo da Vinci and Titian, for instance, that the world knows nothing about. Your interest and presentation is a genuine redit to you. I actually envy you your success and am so happy that you are willing to share it so freely with everybody. I'm just getting into finding things on the computer after growing up too old to understand them easily. But it is wonderful to realise that a man is never too old for sex and if anything, it just gets better!|

|Message:||A most comprehensive and useful site that I feel I shall use often.|
I was active in the European Gay Christian Movement at the time of Pastor Doucé's disappearance and spent a lot of time with Guy. He was a contreversial figure and will be greatly missed.
When I was a teenager I fought for Gay Rights, now at 53 I find gays are accepted but I have MS and find myself fighting for the rights of gay/disabled people.
Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose!
Yours in love and peace

|Message:||I was just surfing around and happened upon your site. I was especially interested in the lists of famous GLBT people. I had a good chuckle over the parenthetical comment next to the entry for Joe Clark - frankly we often wondered about our former Prime Minister! LOL!|
There have been persistent rumours about a number of our NHL players - particularly Joe Nieuwendyk, Cam Neely, Rod Brin d'Amour, Glenn Anderson, and Wendel Clark. Could you confirm any (all?) of these?
In addition, I have been attempting to find out more about a wonderful historian by the name of Allan Berube. I Heard him speak at a conference in Ottawa about ten years ago, and would like to know more about his work. He spoke of a gay labour union which controlled the docks and cruise lines on the American west coast in the 1920s and 30s. Any assistance would be appreciated!

|Message:||A friend of mine told me about your wonderfull website, and that it will be fine to give you more informations. I was born in Nimes, south of France, in 1968. I'm the editorial director of Têtu since 1997. Têtu, the europeen leading gay mag, is now 10 years old.|
I'd just check what you wrote about Axelle Le Dauphin and I. It's all wrong. The idea of a lesbian edition of Têtu was mine, and so was the decision to give Axelle the direction of it, because she was clearly the best. She gathered lesbians journalists, and one of them, Elisabeth Lebovici, find the name Têtu Madame, which is a joke with Madame Figaro. This is just to say that in no mean Têtu Madame was ever thought as some thing against Têtu, since it was born out of it.

|Message:||An impressive web site with a lot of information. Unfortunately, some of it is not true. You have an impressive article on "Johnnie" Phelps. |
All after she was a WAC corporal during (and after) WW-2 is NOT true. She served for two years (1943-5) as a clerk and truck driver in the USA (to include Langley Field, VA). She was authorized to wear the following medals: American Campaign, WAC SErvice Medal, WW-2 Victory Medal. She was discharged as a corporal in late 1945. In May 1946 she rejoined the WAC. She served as a light truck driver/mechanic and clerk, first at Camp Shelby, Miss, then in Oct 1946, she was assigned to Frankfurt, Germany. She had some unknown medical problems, and in Feb 1947, she was returned to the USA for hospitalization at Valley Forge General Hospital, PA. In the Sep 1947, she was released from the hospital and reassigned to Ft Monroe, VA for duty in the USA as a clerk. In May 1948 she was discharged again, for the last time.
She never served overseas when the war was on. She was not in the South Pacific. She did not serve in Germany during the war. She never served in a place where General Eisenhower was assigned, she never worked for General Eisenhower. She was not wounded in action because she was never in action. No WACs were, though 16 were wounded in the Blitz in England (she was never assigned to England either). Her comments are pure fabrication.
General Eisenhower returned from Germany in late 1945 (Phelps was still serving at Langley Field, VA) to become the US Army Chief of Staff (check the record!).
Johnnie Phelps is a fake.
Please check for yourself. Contact the National Personnel Records Center, St Louis, MO using an SF 180 and ask for Phelps records. Her full name is Nell Louise Phelps. Her army service number is A 410913. Her date of birth is Apr 4, 1922. She died Dec 30, 1997. Her SSN is 239-26-2334 (you can get this from the Social Security Death Index).
Her story is very impressive, but it's also a complete fake. Please check the facts and remove her bio from your web site.

|Message:||Subj: SCHINDLER and WINCHELL DEATHS |
Date: 7/30/05 1:15:33 PM Eastern Daylight Time
To: MATT and ANDREJ KOYMASKY
Many thanks for responding to my suggestion that you provide a fuller account of Allen Schindler's death at the hands of Navy personnel. Just yesterday, my assistant showed me additions to your pages concerning Allen Schindler, which appear to have utilized information once posted on "Sailors United for Self-Defense."
Would you also be amenable to bringing your account of PFC. Barry Winchell's death up to date? The truth is usually more satisfying than any fictional account; and there is little Calvin Glover does NOT know about Barry Winchell's demise and the reasons for it. And nothing he would not be prepared to share with you, in the interest of getting that truth out.

I was especially moved by the letter from Bruce's mother; it could sadly be written for every one of the suicides that plague our community.
