Blogger Nina recalls: Of the over 100 organizations, I think 26 were pedophilia or supportive – and in Vancouver this would lead to Cindy Filipenko being fired as editor of Xtra West for calling Pink Triangle Press, the publisher out for supporting. ILGA was the first nongovernment organization to have observer status – and pedophiles are not LGBTQ2 – who are adults with consenting adults. Pedophiles are criminals – which the UN continues to have unresolved issues of aid workers exploiting children, who were often child soldiers.
