As many of you are aware I have recently began writing a column for Diversity Rules Magazine a fairly new LGBT publication. I am very happy and proud to be part of the Diversity Rules family.
However, something very disturbing occurred on Friday afternoon.
My editor received the following email:
Dear Mr. Koury it has come to our attention that not only have you been spreading your heterophobic filth thruout the region but also include your faggoty shit where young children have access to it.They don't know what even normal sex is in their impressionable minds.You WILL stop distributing in these areas and keep this shit in gay bars,etc.We have your name,associates,phone numbers,where you live and where you work as well as your routines.You are giving an even worse impression of homos when you freely distribute among kids.It's called recruting and you WILL stop if you know what's good for you.You see Mr. Koury we are EVERYWHERE.We have also infiltrated your queer organizations AND distributorship. You boast of 10,000 issues a month.It's really only 1/2 of that as OUR people destroy the rest.We are invisible and we are LEGION.We are 14-72 YEARS OF AGE.We are in your schools,law enforcement,churches and government (national and local) and we are EVERYWHERE.If you continue in your indiscriminate distribution of your filthy rag someone-an "associate" perhaps will come up to you UNEXPECTEDLY to render you a personal TUNEUP!!!!! IFYOU'RE SMART YOU WILL TAKE HEED OF OUR MESSAGE.THE MAR/APR EDITION WILL BE THE LAST ONE THAT YOU DISTRIBUTE INDISCRIMINATELY.MARK MY WORDS.ALSO IF YOU THINK "HATE CRIME "LEGISLATION WILL STOP OUR ACTIONS YOU'RE WRONG.DEAD WRONG.In the present economy we can hire almost anyone to do WHATEVER needs to be done.Have a day.
YOUR WORST NIGHTMARE
I am sickened, saddened, and absolutely blown away!
The authorities have been contacted and are investigating and hopefully it will become a matter for the FBI.
There is much more to be done though in the fight for equality and tolerance, which is what Diversity Rules is WORKING TOWARDS! We NEED Diversity Rules and publications like it. And Diversity Rules needs your support! Please share this information with your friends, post it on your blogs, your groups, your mailing lists.

We at Diversity Rules promise to continue to fight this bigotry, all bigotry! I know that many of you will join us. I know that some of you will think about it. I encourage you to do more than that now while you are thinking about it.
I thank you all for your support and please post or email me your thoughts and reactions
