(A True Tale From The Castro. Eat your heart out, Armistead!)

You can meet some of the nicest people here, at _____
___________ Street, eh! People who gossip and harass decent
residents like myself. I try to make a difference as a gay
activist and homeless advocate. The pathetic loser who wrote
"crazy fuck" on my envelope, is guilty of harassment and
tampering with the US mail. I can only imagine what EVIL words
s/he has spread throughout this building, in order to make
people fear and hate yours truly! (For what's written on the
envelope is surely the tip of the iceberg.)

Can you say "witch hunt"? Indeed, this is truly another era of
anti-intellectualism, anti-artist, anti-gay, and
anti-individual freedom! I am so very PROUD to be a warning
bell to those who will listen (and a thorn in the side to
those who won't). It is not MY OWN safety for which I'm
concerned (as I know my angels protect me every step of the
way, thus no harm shall ever come to me)...but for the SOUL of
the sick person who abides here. He or she is NOT alone, and
is in the company of various OTHER nasty folks who reside at
____. They are but a handful of our current residents...but a
very NASTY handful. 

Oh shameful one: your hand writing can easily be compared with
that of other residents on file w/the building manager a.k.a.

been sent via certified mail to the property owner Arikat well as to my own attorney, the local post office,
and the Human Services Agency (from which the letter was

I'd APPRECIATE it if the manager or another representative of
Arikat Realty, would ADMONISH the culprit (whose identity is
revealed by his or her unique hand writing), as well as send a
letter of apology to me, a long term and RESPONSIBLE resident
here, of many years. There is NO EXCUSE for owners of a
building to allow any resident to be treated so shabbily like

This is a nasty epithet written on an envelope addressed to
me, for all to see who pass through the lobby. I feel VERY
sorry for the sick and twisted person or people who perpetrate
homophobic and classist attacks against a dedicated gay
activist such as myself. To write words against me in public
is LIBEL, that is: written defamation of character.
