For me, it is not possible to dissociate LSVD from the memory of Jacques Teyssier. I know Jacques has done so much for LSVD over the years together with other activists. It is sad he will not be able to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the organization. There is still so much to do in Germany in the sphere of same sex marriage and family rights like elsewhere in the world. Congratulation to all of you for the hard work over the years and for your commitment in campaigning in favour of equal rights and tolerance, and against homophobia and transphobia.
