Dear Mark Zuckerberg, John Horgan, and other Facebook Leaders,
Thank you so much. Facebook has been saving young lives. You can continue to save lives, if you save the world's biggest gay-friendly facebook group, with all its information, members and discussions. You can make it better for LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans) youth. As you know, the group, "I Bet We Can Find 1,000,000 People who Support Same-Sex Marriage" reached over 2 million members in just over 2 weeks last year. Restoring the group is the right thing to do. It's also the profitable thing to do, as the gay-friendly community supports facebook.
Sharon Love started the group because her "not straight" cousin took his life when they were young. She has sent a link of the group to countless youth who posted suicide threats on facebook. Many times, Love has sent messages to LGBT youth in crisis saying things like, "Please, on behalf of over 2 million people, I ask you to live. Yes! Over two million people support you. There is hope. Just read the discussions and you'll see....". Those youth are still alive today, thanks in part to you. Please bring back the elements of the group that have been deleted, including the earlier discussions and the list of over 2 million members.
The group is a place where LGBT youth go 24/7, year-round, for a much-needed sense of belonging, support and self-esteem. Saving the group will not only promote justice, it will also save more lives. The group gets hundreds of posts every month. Please upgrade the group, or keep it as is. Please do not archive it and delete all the members, as the note at the top of the group indicates is planned.
The gay-friendly community supports facebook; please support us. Being gay-friendly is the right thing to do. It is also the profitable thing to do, if you would like to enjoy our continued support. Research shows that over 54% of the population is LGBT, and even more are supportive. LGBT people are your members and your advertisers, and we care about respect. Deeply. You can contact Sharon Love at http://www.outstandinglives.org to negotiate a win-win solution that benefits facebook and the gay-friendly community. We support you. Will you please support us?
THANKS! You make a difference.
