This passionate talk from Dr. James O’Keefe MD gives us a deeply personal and fascinating insight into why homosexuality is indeed a necessary and extraordinarily useful cog in nature’s wheel of perfection.

  1. This new to many especially growing up in the Christian community where homosexuality is looked down on. But I do see them has unique with special talent. I guess there is a variety of people. We were always taught they are wrong I never really wanted to go there so I usually left the arguments alone.

  2. Fascinating. It totally makes sense. Thank you for this enlightening talk which helps to spread not only acceptance of the lgbq community but appreciation and understanding.

  3. I so miss my Darling Kevin.
    He visits me now, in the shape of a Monarch butterfly (as he was born in the Year of the Tiger…hence the royalty and matching colours!…lol)..
    He has touched many lives, and changed the minds of so many people, with his gorgeous Spirit.
    Although he left way too early…his impact was enormous…our World was so much richer..for having had him in it.

    He was a Blessing, to all who met him.

    When I first met him…he was reading a book called 'The Inner Eye of Love'…..he must have studied it well.
    I feel his presence around me a lot…"Hey Kev….miss seeing and hugging you, so very much"

  4. Im a straight man but I dont understand homophobes. Its none of their business who others want to date, love and attracted to. It isn't harming them. So I dont understand homophobia or transphobia. Let people be themselves

  5. Yeah, my family disowned me. I'm a huge help to them, they didn't even want me. They just shattered my self-confidence. I can't have friends anymore because I'm afraid that they'll hate me. I have trouble submitting applications to jobs because I think they'll hate me. I don't expect acceptance from anyone.
