Dear all of you, I haven't seen all of you teens out in the other forums so I've come to you.

I am working right now on my Labour of Love. It has just found me and I want it to be the best.

My new found business partner & I are setting up a media group that will predominatly be working with charitable organisations. There are many, so we want the best input & output! We are developing ideas on a couple of plans already, in the best way for everyone. As well as designing new ways of being helpful, we also need solid input from people who want a change in certain things.

I need to know what's out there. The general concensous is always shifting, and I'd greatly appreciate it, if you'd voice what matters to you and why.

This will assist me a great deal in defining what it is people are looking for in the world. Please be specific, for example if it's a 'Stop Cruelty to Horses' cause, or 'I'm worried about the rainforests' - please state why so I can see what steps have been done to remedy these already.

With your help, I can decifer what to bring to the table, and a structure of how to help to resolve it. This will help a great deal since I haven't got all the hours I need to research right now, keeping up the day job!

Many thanks in advance!
K

Well... As far as things that I think about...

I live in America! I don't have to think! What are you talking about Sheaa Olein Oh Sorry Karen. I don't know what came of me. Must be that alternate consciousness they implanted in my mind the other day... As in Popular couture... WHY, Why, why? We the people of the world are being influenced and blinded by the worlds media. So many choices to chose from. Which is the right chose for you? The major networks that spew sh*t at you such as murder cases after murder case? "BE AFRAID! BE VERY AFRAID!" Do you ever watch that cr*p? It's positively mind numbing, desensitizing cr*p that makes your mind lazy. I want something to make me think, but just like you Sheaa Olein, I'm Special. I go out into the world and try to see if for how it is. Not for Whose latest scandal is on the news and what Model is going to rehab, and who got married. That stuff is the stuff that ruins the young, and potentially beautiful minds of today... The superficial saturation of Media! I don't want my media to exist without content! I WANT CONTENT! And think of it this way. You want to interest the masses? Well then present content in a way that is popular! address popular issues! Give them different spins. Change the perspective. Throw them around and make them thank you for it afterward.

Anther thing that kind of ****** me off is politics... they those ******** are runnin' things now-a-days is mad.

Also, I love conceptual things: Like philosophy, science, art, lifestyles, and people

For me, I care about a lot of issues, but what I'm looking for in general is, like Deep said, content. It needs to be interesting, current, targeted at young people (if they're who you're targeting), and cool/hip (hate that word, 'hip'). Class and artsiness are also good to have. Presumably you want to attract intelligent, discerning people, not the mush-brained mainstream?

Okay, on topic: issues I care about. Very concerned with gay rights, the environment, ethical treatment of animals, and humanitarian crises the world over. Closer to home, I have a major bone to pick with corrupt and unfair government, the Christian right, and corporate wickedness.
There's a lot of other things I'm concerned with or interested in, so maybe I'll add to this list, k?
good luck,
Sheeba

Hey Shea,
I'm a Rotracter(I hope u know what that is!), so I'm into doing social work & stuff.
However I think one of the grave problems facing the world is awareness among youth.We are the future citizens and adequate stress needs to be given on developing healthy young minds for a better tommorow.

I'm really interested in AIDS. It's a pretty huge epidimic, and I don't know if Bush is really caring about it as much as he should. I think it's pretty funny how so many people are dying out there of AIDS and other epidimecs and all he cares about is whether or not homosexuals should be allowed to marry.

Anywho. Having had one of my own family members die of AIDS (my mom), I'm aware of how big of an issue it is in third world countries. I watched a documentary on Nova once, and they were talking about Africa, and how women have to sell their bodies for food, and then they contract AIDS. It's just... horrible.

This is great, what you're doing Sheaa =).

Hi everyone!

Thanks for you're input I noted you're replies.

Queen of Sheeba Hello beautiful! Love your pic in the old LL photoshop

I agree whole heartedly - content, content, content my aim is to attract views from all people. it's important to know how the "mainstream" work - and where the perception of disillusion comes from to fully comprehend what it is I'm attempting.

You're issues - gay rights, ethical treatment of animals, humanitarian crises, governments, Christian rights & corporate affairs.. a good mix m'love. What did you mean on the Christian issues? This is what I'm attempting to discern, there may be things I'm missing that are important to people. Of course, I'd welcome you to add to the list, it's all appreciated!

guess_my_sign Hi there honey! The whole concept of up-coming youth being the world's tomorrow is imperitive to address! Indeed, I'm glad you reinforced it.

I'd love to know more about what social work you did, if you choose to share? Please expand on Rotracter, I don't know what it means exactly. I love when people know they've helped, y'know?

Everlong Good to hear from you! I'm sorry to hear about your mom

AIDS is another one of those issues that education is so important for. I see where you're coming from. It's an issue that bugs me because I've seen so many charities making a great deal of money & noise about it. We've been told that there have been improvements, and I believe that people are working hard on the issue. However, just like many of us, we want to know hard facts as to what's working, and what isn't!

I love you're sig by the way.

Our meeting on the rainforest issue was moved from this weekend. I see now for a very good reason. It's an important meeting, in which i have the opportunity to bring up other ideas.
When I meet with Oli on the charity issues, this will be printed & we'll see how this can be researched.

Thank you for being 's
- please add to it, no matter how small you think a concept is, as Linda said - "If you don't mind, it won't matter"!

We're working on the music aspect right now, & setting up the UK tour. I will keep you posted on how things are going,

Much love,
Sheaa

Thanx Randall Feels good to be back.

Sheaa- clarification on the Christian right topic. I'm referring to the Christian political right, ie conservative Christian fundamentalists, and the things they stand for that I find to be lunacy. So, for example, violations of the church-and-state barrier, homophobia, book burnings and other censorship,anti-abortion madness... that program.

Last time I checked, the actual rights of Christians were in no danger at all.

I'm editing to clarify just a little more: their absolutist thinking, that their religion is the only valid one, and that anyone who does not agree with their standards and morals must be made to conform.

Thank you for clarifying QOS - sorry I thought I'd replied. That's what happens when I read posts at work, I usually get distracted. Thanks again

The prep for all this is going well - still juggling the day job and late nights to set up meetings, but hey - it will be worth it, especially when I get useful info daily. Being aware of each other is so important, there are signs in everything

I agree with you totally, Queen of Sheba. There should be someone to adress the issue of gay rights. Sadly, I have seen some ignorance on other sites linked to this one on that subject. I wish more people understood about gays and lesbians, they would not be opposed to gay marriage if they could walk a mile in our mocassins. I am a girl, btw It's too bad. There are gay rights organizations out there, of course, and there is pflag. In schools, there are gay/straight alliances. I know! Why not outreach to straight people and try to educate them? Even the ones who have no gay relatives. That would be nice.

I know that Linda did not say a lot about gays or lesbians. Let's say she hinted at it a few times, skirted the issue a little more, made some (sadly) heterosexist remarks....... Very regretful for Linda! ..... But she couldn't help it, was a product of heterosexist society, and a Catholic. (Much more enlightened & understanding than most Catholics!!!!) So... I think if she could have sat down with us for a cup of tea, Queen of Sheba, we might have explained it to her between us.

I was very deeply inspired & moved by what Linda had to say about twin selves. I am not sure if my twin is still out there or not. I think she is. I'm not supposed to meet her yet, I think. She isn't ready yet. I have some creative work to do in the gay community first that will lay the groundwork for our meeting (I hope.)

Okay, does this help, Sheaa? If you have any questions at all, feel free to ask, I would love it.

Yes, laff, welcome! This website is wonderfully openminded, even if the rest of the world is still a touch bigotted. Does Philadelphia have much of a lesbian scene?

Thank you all for the warm welcome. I appreciate it.

Yes, QOS, the scene is still active here in Philadelphia, although I have been out of the swing of things for awhile.

What's it like right now in sunny California?

Hello & welcome laff!

Yes, another insightful opinion appreciated I learnt something else thanks to you about 'pflag' http://www.pflag.org/ I'd not heard of it before. I agree, there's a dire need for education in all areas - some people are too quick to leap to conclusions when they don't know the facts.
What's the community like in Philadelphia - would it be easy to set up a group - is that what you're working on? I mean as in the creative project?

The scene for under-21s is pretty limited. But there are tons of queer folk around if you know where to find them.

Honestly Randall, not as I expected. Thank you for asking I can't post all the reasons on the board as to why, but let's say I used my instincts wisely.

My mind's still in full flow as to how to tackle this, since I'm adament I will achieve something. It's just not going to come about the way I thought it may, three months before. It saddened me, but I have and haven't let it go for now.

The input I recieved in the throes of this project were useful indeed and still appreciate it. I will a hatch way forward! It's just a matter of time.

If anyone wants to mail me regarding this, you are welcome to

I think that a big problem is the gang stuff it happens in the next town. I think it has to be stopped I live in the richer part of town cause my dad is very wealthy and stuff but I fell bad for the people who can't afford to live here so I'd like it if there could be some kind of somthing that will put out the hate.
