“Thanks so much all you Same Love crowd. Love you all”   Hermine Spies Coleman

“This last year has been one of the most incredible years of my life and to that end, I would like to thank everyone in my life that has made this transition so amazing! Without the love and support that I have received from friends (new and old), this last year would never have been quite to fantastic as it was. To everyone at my work who has stood by me, and to my LGBT support group (Same Love) who has shown me such love and kindness, and wrote me letters, so that I wouldn’t feel alone here in Bangkok, I thank you.”  Nicole Orpen

“Thank you Kim for all you did to make the first LGBTI workshop in Toti happen, big love” Graham Goodwin

“I felt that I was drowning at sea, with no land anywhere in sight. Then I found Same Love Toti, and for the first time I felt the ground beneath my feet. Since those early days at Same Love, it has been a time of walking for me, with the water getting shallower with every step. Now I feel like I have finally come to shore.”  Gillian Coleman

“I like coming to Same Love Toti because at least here, I know that my child feels accepted and is safe to be who he really is. It is a relief to come here.” Merilyn Thomson

“Since my daughter came out and we started coming here, she has just bloomed! She has such a confidence now and is so much happier. At first I didn’t know anything about bisexuals, then Kim came and explained it all to me and I am so grateful for that. All I can say is that I don’t know what we would have done without the support of Same Love Toti.” Lorinda Eastes

” I didn’t know anyone here, so this has become like my social circle, a safe space to be me and meet some lovely people.” Gus Oosthuizen

“Same Love Toti is for me, a safe place to come and be me. I believe everyone is an individual, we are all unique, and we should all be who we truly are. We shouldn’t have to change to fit in, or hide who we are. That’s what I find here.” John Goodier

“At school I felt like a stranger in my own class, a freak. Until Same Love Toti came to my school, now I have hope. I know that there are other people out there like me, I know that I am not alone, I know that I belong somewhere – here! I know that we can change things and make things better for everyone. Even if it is for just one person, like me, then I want to give them that hope that I found too.” Audrey del Valle Zimeta

” I just want to thank you for speaking to my mom. I know she has talked to you a lot, and you have helped her, and so you have helped me too. It has made it easier for me. It has made such a difference!” Kerry-Lee Minnie
