As a founder of the GCIA, I must stand against Dr. Vera Triplets' thoughts. 'She has never represented our community... in fact she is against many of us who live in Gentilly.
She wants our lives to be hers, and I'm sorry, but I don''t desire to live her sterile life. (Remember Vera, I told you to remove the corncob from your tush years ago.
I live my own life and people like you have no control over me.
