Religion and Same-Sex Attraction

Dear Ernest,

Welcome to Ning. I came to know about you through Rituu. I had recently seen a letter from you regarding a consultation for TG persons in Delhi. I would like invite you to see my page on Ning. I have been gaining a lot of inspiration from ACP and Community Life Competence Process (CLCP) as it is very close to my life. I am glad that you are keen in practising the ACP approach among the MSM community I strongly believe that many of us are trying to do it and to gether we will be able to make it happen. I have been working with organisations of Sex workers and MSM for past few years and I hope we can have lot of interation regrding this and learn and share with each other. Another colleague of mine Robin will also get in touch with you.

Lets keep in touch,

With warm regards,
