Gary Rimar

Shelby Township, Michigan

Gary RimarI am Gary Rimar, and I live in Shelby Township, Michigan (about 25 miles north of downtown Detroit). I am 36, have known I was gay for over a quarter of a century, and have been out of the closet since 1992. I am presently a salesperson, but have ambitions of spending more time doing civil rights work on a professional basis. I am in a long-term monogamous relationship with my partner, Tim, who raises emus primarily for their oil, which has many beneficial medicinal properties.

My reason for going on this mission is out of my love for Jerry Falwell, his congregants, and the rest of humankind. My hope is to dispel some of the misinformation that some people have about people who are gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgendered. Because of the bondage of this misinformation, many people (both in and out of Jerry’s direct influence) spend incredible amounts of time dealing with phantom issues. There are so many issues that deserve attention. The time and effort prsently spent dealing with "the homosexual menace" would be much better spent on those issues rather than chasing non-existent bogeymen.
