FROM: Organization Center—Cliff Sawyer
SUBJECT: Danny Nagashima’s Message to the Gay Pride Parade Celebrations

To the precious members of the SGI-USA GLBT group:

Congratulations on the holding of your wonderful pride celebrations. I truly thank you for your participation, and I especially thank those who have worked tirelessly behind the scenes toward the success of these activities.
In his message for the 75th anniversary of the Soka Gakkai, SGI President Ikeda writes:
“Nichiren Buddhism guides us to achieve our individual human revolution while enabling us to reveal great strength of character from within so that we can contribute not only to our own happiness but also for others and society as a whole. What is most needed in this ever more confusing world is the kind of dialogue that, based upon mutual trust and respect, is capable of transcending any differences among people.”
I believe your gathering is symbolic of this spirit, expressing your powerful
determination to advance with justice and equality for the sake of the people. I am looking forward to your wonderful growth and expansion based on these efforts;
let’s continue to unite with the pioneer members, men’s and women’s division and the youth. Please advance valiantly, creating a glorious history toward 2010, and let’s celebrate the 80th anniversary of the Soka Gakkai with boundless victory as Ever-Victorious America!
I am sincerely praying for your great health and success in all your endeavors. Once again, from the bottom of my heart, thank you very much.


Danny Nagashima
SGI-USA General Director

We finally got our GLBT and Friends group officially up and running. Only running into a bit of difficulty getting support from members to march in the Pride Parade and work the table. We are chanting Daimoku to make this happen..but I just feel some members do not understand that the SOLE purpose of our pride participation is share this buddhism with as many people as possible. Send Daimoku and those who have experience with this...feel free to message me.

Welcome, I am a American who lives in Germany and I have been practicing over 9 years and you areright what a wonderful organization we have SGI. We are in over 199 countries and we practice the same just in different languages. I have the fortune to have moved back to Germany and this is my 3rd time back. Everything is possible but you must have faith in you and the Gohonzon. Please keep up the good work and fight for Kosu-Rufu, the world needs us. all the best,

Hello from Louisville KY!
I am a queer member of SGI-Louisville (Men's Division/Highlands District). Just wanted to say hello to my fellow GLBT Bodhisttavas of the Earth. I am so grateful to have found the SGI, a religious community that goes well beyond TOLERANCE and CELEBRATES our diversity. It has been the greatest blessing. We are trying to get a GLBT group going in Louisville..thoughts, comments, advice welcome!
Take care,
