Congratulations to Fisch for coming-out!

I would like to commend Fisch on his coming-out on FT!

http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/Forum.../001370-4.html

It is never easy to do this, and it is important to be as supportive as possible to those amongst us who are torn between keeping-up appearances and taking a chance with people accepting them for who they really are. It takes a lot of courage to come-out, and Fisch managed to find this strength much faster than others.

People of a variety of persuasions and ethnic backgrounds have always been an important aspect of the FT community.

I hope that we continue to make everyone feel welcome (unless they get into some flame wars )

Thank you Flyboy for your kind words

BB, thanks I agree, diversity is one thing that makes our board so wonderful and useful. And you know that I'd never engage in a "flame"war!

Personally, I don't see what the big deal is. If you are, you are; if you're not, you're not. No big deal. All are welcome in this community.

Welcome Planetalker.
Fisch it certainly does not bother me at all what yours or anyones sexuality is, if you enjoy it and it harms no one, go for it. Life is too short not to take happiness where you can find it.

My response to this is who cares? And I mean this in the positive sense. (I hope you know what I mean, Fisch )
