Proof that Federal Way needs diversity awareness | Letters

T.J. Brown's letter July 14 regarding "Gay in Federal Way" is full of hate and misinformation. Moving to any particular city over another to avoid gay people is an exercise in futility. Gay people make up roughly 10 percent of our population and since they are born, not recruited (which Brown was concerned about) they are being born here, there and everywhere, all the time. Even in Federal Way. Brown also confuses gays and transvestites ("and a dress too if he wants to play dress-up with his steam bath buddies"). I can understand wishing our city did not have to spend money on diversity awareness issues, including gay awareness. However, Brown's letter is proof that we need to.
