Response to Ananta Purusottama

by Rama Kesava das

Posted August 2, 2003

Dear Ananta Purusottama prabhu,

Dandavat pranams. Firstly let me thank you for your kind letter. I wish more people had your kind of attitudes.

You're right, GALVA does not exist to proclaim our sexual proclivity (far from it!). Rather, GALVA exists to provide support, counselling, etc., for gay devotees, and to counter misunderstandings about gay persons. This is the same reason other Vaisnava groups have been formed too (including Vaisnava Youth and the International Women's Ministry). If everyone were as tolerant as you then GALVA would not even have to exist.

Thanks.

Your servant,
Rama Kesava dasa
