Martin Murphy's Pride
I ride for my friends, to show my Pride, and to support the programs of the Gay Alliance.
I ride because I did not know how to be proud of who I was when I was growing up in a small town. The only people that I knew that came out or were outed immediately left town and were ostracized. I like to think that the world and that town are much different than they were when I was growing up but unfortunately there are still people out there living these scenarios or much worse. Fortunately I have a loving family, caring friends, and live in a very tolerant and safe city. I ride openly because I am greatful that I have all this and to remember that there are those that have none of this.
The good news is that there are organizations like the Gay Alliance that give people a place where they do not have to be afraid of showing their true selves. The Gay Alliance supports the LGBTQ community and individuals by showing them that they are not alone. With programs such as the youth group, safe zone training, veterans outreach, elderly outreach, and more, the Gay Alliance delivers the message of tolerance, acceptance, and community unity. The Gay Alliance is a support system for those that may not have any other support just because of who they are.
Please donate to help continue these services so that the Gay Alliance can help more people and keep the community strong.
Many thanks for your support -- and don't forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too!
