COMMENTARY:  Hello all of you sexy boys and sophisticated men.  I am looking
forward to meeting many of you and making new friends in the LGBT community.  I like to consider myself fairly
well educated as I am working on my basic associates degree and plan to pursue further education.  I am very
liberal and open-minded and there is nothing people cannot discuss with me.  I consider myself a true cowboy
because I know how to train and ride horses, rope cattle and more.  I am a very outdoors kind of person.  People
sometimes call me old fashioned because I believe chivalry isn't dead and that manners go a long way.  Maybe
I've said something that sparks your interest.  By all means drop me a line and we'll see how it turns out.  There's
nobody I won't write, so please don't hesitate.  Diversity makes the world go round.  Thank you for taking the time
to check me out.  Whether you choose to write me or not, I wish you a blessed day and a happy life.

COMMENTARY:  Gay man here in search of the same.  I am a white guy who
is 53 years old and I have no one on the outside.  I will be released from prison
in 2016.  I am unable at this time to provide a photograph.  I would truly like to find a gay man to write.  Who
knows what the future might hold. I am very lonely.  It seems that when I came to prison I lost contact with the
world.  I get no mail and have no friends either here in prison or outside of prison.  I guess you are expected to be
some kind of macho straight dude before anyone will allow you to fit in.  One day I hope I will find a man who will
care for me the way I care about him.  I am not about head games.  I am about friendship and, hopefully, turning
that friendship into something real and forever.  Lastly, if you are a gay man who would like to meet a fun-loving,
big-hearted true gay man then please write to me.  It will be worth the stamp.  I have a stamp and envelope just
waiting to be used on my letter to you.

COMMENTARY:  I am the youngest of three and I am part Cherokee Indian
from East Texas.  I've lived in Dallas and Ft. Worth most of my adult life.  I was
raised by my grandmother.  I have done some traveling from Seattle to South Carolina.  I really want to see
England.  I love castles and I love to play Dungeons & Dragons.  I've been locked up for more that 12 years.  I
want to write someone outside these walls that is like me.  Being gay is not accepted in prison and that means
there are not a lot of people with whom to have a real conversation.    I am very open-minded.  I love to draw and I
can draw anything if I can see it.  I love to listen to the House of Hair with Dee Snyder.  I love all things outdoors.  I
enjoy working out and watching WWE wrestling.  My favorite WWE group is Skid Row.  I really enjoy laughing and
joking around and I try to surround myself with the same type of people.  I don't play games..when I am loyal it is
total commitment.  I believe we all need at least one true friend. If you do decide to use Jpay.com to write to me,
please put your return address within the body of the letter. If you don't, I won't know where to send my reply to
your letter. I am not looking for a special friend because I have found my soulmate. He is a very important part of
my life and I deeply love him. His name is John.  If you write to me it should be as just a pen pal. I am true and
loyal to John. He's my true friend.

whole purpose in life will be to serve and please me.  I will own you like any possession.   I will use, degrade and
humiliate you and you will thank me for it.  You will be my pet and plaything, a piece of meat and servant that
exists solely for my use.  I will give you the discipline you crave.  Be warned, write me and I own you from that
moment on.  You must be a freak and total sex addict.  I will train you through the mail for the present, but upon
my release I will immediately take possession of you.  I demand honesty and loyalty above all.  Your outward
appearance is not as important as your heart and sincerity.  You must send a photo and obey without question or
reservation.  All may apply regardless of your age, weight or ethnicity.  I do enjoy being especially rough and
sadistic with sissies, crossdressers and fems.  I am demanding, cruel, outrageous and caring.  I will make you love
me.  Write now for immediate service and training.

COMMENTARY:  I am innocent and wrongfully locked up for murder.  I am looking for loving and caring gay guys
and transsexuals who are willing to do whatever to get an innocent man legally released from prison and thereby
starting a long and loving relationship.  I've been wrongfully locked up for 14-plus ears and financial help doesn't
come often.  So I do not have the money I need to prove I am innocent murder.  I also don't have the money to get
my inventions patented and sold.  I know that with the right help I'll be able to prove my innocence and get the
inventions sold.  I have a military invention that will save lives of the troops, but I don't have the money to get an
attorney to file the necessary paperwork with the U.S. Patent Office.  My inventions are worht millions because
they'll save lives, stop rapes and crimes and other stuff.  If I am proved innocent, I should get $1.2 million from the
state for wrongful imprisonment.  I also want to open an LGBT nightclub.  I'm clean, respectful and a hard worker.  
I love to hang out with family and friends, both mine and your's.   I love to receive pictures, especially sexy ones.  I
also enjoy hearing about the fantasies of others.  If you receive a letter from an unknown inmate at my prison, he
probably was given or stole your letter that was addressed to me.  I encourage you not to write back to that
person.  If you feel your letters are not getting to me by using the prison address, then please write to me at my
parent's address and they will make sure I get the letter:  1516 Lee Ave., Ft. Worth, TX 76164.

COMMENTARY:  I am looking for a brighter tomorrow. I am about to begin
my 13th year of confinement and would like a few pen pals to give me more
to look forward to.  Receiving mail on a regular basis goes a long, long way in here helping us inmates stay
positive and hopeful.  So I'd really appreciate it if you'd take a few moments to respond to this listing.  I'm like that
lost puppy, it doesn't take much to get me all excited.  So you need not offer much encouragement, any will do
just fine.  I am a huge flirt at times and as you can probably guess prison isn't an ideal place to flirt.  Too many of
the fellas are way to ready to take you up on it.  Being gay in prison can be tricky if you aren't careful.  So I prefer
to pursue my gay men outside the walls that imprison me.  I have a huge range of interest and enjoy learning new
things.  I am also a big kidder.  I like to have a good time joking around.  Of course I have a serious side.  I'm
versatile in so many ways.  I am greatly looking forward to hearing from you.  I'd like to wish everyone a happy
new year.  May this year be the best yet for us all.

A guy you can open up to and be yourself and who isn't judgmental?  A guy that respects other with a kind heart
and an open mind?  Then we should write.  In life I realized to be yourself and not what other want you to be.  But
not everyone can, that's why we need other to talk with.  In college my studies were first responder, emergency
medical technician and lab tech.  Being one that likes to help other, I took classes on massage therapy to help
people to relax.  I have always been involved in the gay community where I lived.  I volunteered at food pantries
and clinics for people living with HIV/AIDS.  I enjoy all types of novels -- from romance to mysteries, gay erotica
and vampires.  I'm more of a masculine guy than feminine.  I am a guy who enjoys being in jeans and T-shirts, but
I do like to dress up and go out.  I do like to cook and I can make some fab dishes.  I enjoy cooking Mexican,
Italian and American food.  I enjoy writing, it helps a person to express their self to others.  If you are looking for a
guy you can have great conversations with and could help brighten your day, the please just take an moment and
write me.  I appreciate you taking the time to read my listing.

my mate.  I am in great shape because I exercise daily.  I just recently decided to turn myself completely over to a

COMMENTARY:  I've never liked long-winded introductions, so I will keep
mine brief and unpretentious.  I've been told that my profile should sound
friendly so as to offset the fact that I am serving a life sentence for murder.  Apparently, a sense of congeniality
would make me see less threatening and increase my response rate from potential pen pals.  However, I've never
been considered "friendly" by anyone who has known me.  I realize this admission might decrease my response
rate from potential pen pals, but those who are open-minded, adventurous and have some kind of interest in the
darker side of human nature might find the idea of corresponding with me an intriguing journey.  My life has been
very fascinating, although macabre at times, and I am very knowledgeable in various esoteric subjects.  Those
who wish to correspond with me are welcome ask any questions they might have.  Issues such as age, race, etc.,
do not matter to me.

COMMENTARY:  Hello!  Hopefully this finds you all in good health and
spirits.  I am here in hopes of finding someone that is serious and mature
enough to left go of all the head and heart games.  I have three years left on a 7-year sentence for assault.  My
life and my past are open books.  I have nothing to hide.  In prison gay males are treated like the lower class, so it
is hard to come out of the closet.  I have to portray this straight image or become a victim of a sexual assault.  So I
keep up this ruse to protect myself.  But I really miss hanging around with "my people."  So if you are serious,
please sit down and respond.  I will answer all until I find that special one.  The remainder of my sentence is short,
so please no head games.  I await your response.  Please take care and remain safe.

COMMENTARY:  I am a 33-year-old gay man hoping to go home within the
near year and no later than in 2015.  Having cut most ties to my former life,
I am not sure where I will be going or what I will be doing.  For years I was
addicted to sex and hard drugs.  Though I still favor sex [lol], I have given up the drugs.  My new high is getting an
education.  I am currently in college and my grades are excellent.  Having the mind for it, I plan to continue once I
am released.  I am seeking honest, straight forward, no nonsense individuals with who I can build a meaningful
friendships/relationships.  I have no times for games.  What I need are some positive people in my life and I
transition to the outside.  As for romance, I'm optimistic.  I would like to find a good man who has his shit together
and the type of guy I can emulate.  A guy who is energetic and enjoys life like I do.  I'd like a man who will
encourage me and build me up.  Your age isn't important to me.  The best love I've had was 20 years my senior.  
My interests are too many to list here.  I love being outside, live music of all sorts, different people, cultures,
travel, food and specially being near the water. The list could go on forever.  I am a lover of life.  I encourage any
man who is interested to write to me.  I look forward to hearing from you.

COMMENTARY:  Hey everyone!  I'm so excited and grateful to know there
are people out there who understand that no one is perfect and even though
many people in here earned it,  most of us are simply good people who made
a mistake.  I feel honored to be regarded as worthy of your time.  I hope to find
someone who can look past how horrible my crimes must look and find out for himself that I am a kind,
compassionate and loyal person.  I go by Andre, Trip or Dre -- your choice.  I am interested in meeting new
people.  I am a very happy and open-minded person despite my incarceration; so I am quite open to any and all
pen pals.  This place is, amongst other things, a lonely place.  Also my sexuality isn't something you can
broadcast without facing drama, so I keep it to myself and that sucks.  Although I will be happen to be friends with
anyone who writes to me, romantically I'm most interested in meeting trans girls or very fem guys to be friends with
first and perhaps more later.  There is enough discrimination in this world, so I don't participate.  You race does
not matter to me.  I remain on a quest to evolve as a human being, to learn new things, be happy every day and
leave the world a better place than when I found it.  I'm looking forward to meeting you.

COMMENTARY:  If you are reading this, then something must have caught
your eye.  Being bored or lonely can certainly bring you to this realization. So
let's get started.  I am in search of a few friends with whom to correspond to pass this idle time.  Friends that are
honest, outgoing and have an understanding about life.  Someone that isn't quick to judge. "Books are meant to
be read, so don't just look at it."  Friends that understand when you make a few mistakes, some of which I am not
proud.  I don't claim to be perfect and if you do, you're fooling yourself.  What I do know is to build a lasting
friendship or relationship it must be built on trust, honesty and, most of all, communication.  There must be a
willingness to admit when you are wrong.  I can't please everyone, even though I wish I could.  So let me tell you a
little bit about myself.  I am from Ft. Worth in the Lone Star State, a pure Southern boy, that loves hanging out.  I
am fun, easy going, honest and love to laugh.  I love to write and converse, so that would surely brighten my day.  
I am straight forward and DO NOT judge.  My interests in life are socializing, working out to stay fit, anything
outdoors, drawing, shooting pool, dancing, any kind of contact sport, being at the lake with a cold Bud Light,
cooking out, bonfires and feeling loved.  So if any of my thoughts dwell in you, we could be compatible.  We are
only human and that means we make mistakes in our lives.  We must learn from those errors and keep pushing
forward the best we can and accept no setbacks.  The type of friends for which I search should be open-minded,
honest and care-free; plus willing to give me a chance to prove my loyalty and respect before a label is printed.  
That is what I would do for you.  Let our journey begin.

COMMENTARY:  Hi everyone!  I am 5-foot-4, weigh 135 and am 45 years
young.  I also like going to the beach and traveling.  I am looking for friends
and friendship.  Let me be honest with you, I have been locked up since I was 19 and that's 26 years since I have
been incarcerated and most of that time was spent in administrative segregation.. In Ad-Seg I am only allowed to
come out of my cell for one hour a day and cannot watch television.  I was originally locked up for car theft but
managed to acquire more prison time for not following the rules.  I am not proud of it, but I am open about it.  So
ask me all the questions you want.  I am finally up for parole and have a chance of being released in three to four
years.  I am a little scared and uncertain because the world is now a completely different place.  So I am looking
forward to writing to people who can help prepare me for that strange world....like smartphones and other
technology.  Really everything!  I am looking to correspond with like peers and there are so many crazy, different
and unique stories out there.  The cultures, the different views and people and everyone wants to tell their story,
to be listened to.  I am no different, so write!  Tell me your story and I will do likewise.  Hope to hear from you
soon. Take care.

COMMENTARY:  I am stepping out...and it feels like I am walking on
cloud nine.  Actually, I came out a couple of years ago while incarcerated.
It is safe to say it is not like prison is portrayed in the movies.  It is all about
the ways a person carries himself.  I am an athletic person and an outgoing man.  I love to work out and play both
basketball and volleyball. I maintain a healthy body of which I am very proud.  I enjoy the company of people who
like me for "me."  Many guys in here will not associate with me for fear they will be labeled.  I'd love to correspond
with all LGBT people.  I am seeking someone who is secure in who they are.  Personally, I messed up and let a
bad marriage dictate my unforeseeable future.  Instead of letting it keep me down, I try hard to do positive things
while here.  Do you want me?

for -- friendship, a companion, etc.  From behind these walls lonely is where I find myself today so I figured I'd
shoot my shot at this pen pal thing and who knows.  Maybe the person I seek is the individual reading this on their
screen at this moment.  Is that you?  I guess I won't know until I get that most-welcomed letter in the mail.  There
are a lot of things I can tell you about myself, but I can sum it up all this way:  What you see is what you get.  
Needing someone to talk to?  Wanting a new friend to meet?  Want to laugh?  Needing advice without all of the
lies and sugar coating?  Let all that be found in me by you.  I was told the whole pen pal adventure is about
finding a intimate friend, confidant, conversationalist.  But I don't see it like that at all.  I look at it as finding YOU to
be friends with, confide in and coverse with.  Who knows where the road might lead.  The sky is the limit, so take a
chance.  What do you have to loose other than a bit of time and a stamp or two.  I will make it worth your efforts.

you a little about myself.  I'm very confident in who I am, passionate about what I have to offer and determined in
what I want.  I am also very loving, loyal to a fault almost, humorous and down-to-Earth.  My strongest quality [in
my opinion] is my selflessness compassion.  I pride myself on being open-minded and I love to talk about any and
everything.  If I cannot relate, then you'll find out what a great listener I am.  I enjoy learning, sharing and
laughing, and being close.  You should know that race, age or social status is of no concern to me, nor do I care
what reflects in the mirror.  I am most compatible with sincerity and uniqueness, and I must say ambition is a major
turn-on for me.  I'm looking for that person willing to explore every possibility.  In the pursuit of happiness, on any
given day, special individuals are joine, selected and/or received from afar in the most amazing ways.  So in my
case I am placing myself before you so that you may consider choosing me!  Disappointment not included, and

COMMENTARY:  People come into our lives for a reason, a season and a
lifetime. Some people enter your life for a reason, may you need something, or
someone else needed you.  They could be there to teach you a lesson or for
you to share something with them.  For whatever the reason, the person has
found their way into your life.  And when their duty is complete, or that need is fulfilled, they will leave.  Some
people come only for a season.  They could be God's way of assisting you through a difficult time.  Sometimes
they will make you smile and laugh often bringing great joy into your life, and without anything happening to push
you apart, the season will pass and they too will leave.  Then there are those that find their way into your life who
are there to guide you along the way, through the good and bad alike and over the course of time these people
are there for a lifetime.  Whatever reason that has drawn us to cross paths I welcome it.  I hope we can become
friends and share our ups and downs and everything inbetween.  I am a laid back humble person and was raised
to treat people like you like to be treated.  I welcome you to come as you are for you will not be judged.  I look
forward to hearing from you in the near future.

COMMENTARY:  First, thank you for looking at my listing and if you're seeking
someone that's discrete, respectful and serious about making changes for a
better future, then that's me.  I'm seeking politically, philosophically and economically minded friends with whom to
correspond.  I've very business minded and have some future business plans I'll share with serious friends willing
to provide friendly or professional advice.  I've never been in a long-term gay relationship, but if someone proves
to be serious and mature, then let fate do the rest.  I tend to favor people of the gay community that are feminine.  
I am a masculine guy, but not dominant, and am very respectful.  I have many friends in the gay community that
are in long-term relationships and I kind feel left out.  I look forward to be home by January 2015.  Time is very
important to me at the moment.  Being away from my mom is hard because she is very ill.  It is a full time job trying
to keep my spirits high.  So I share my friends with mom, point being family means a great deal to me.  I love to
draw and air-brush and I will share art if you make a request.  Don't be shy when you write.  Tell me what you see
and asking anything you want.  Thank you GPUSA  for helping me find a queen and friends with whom to spend
time. You can email me at www.jpay.com.

where we really connect.  The ying to my yang!  The socket for my plug, if you will.  Anyway, I have no kids and I'm
divorced.  I was bisexual when I was out, but I've finally and seriously decided that I am happiest when I am with
another man.  I love nature, fishing, swimming, BBQing at the lake.  I love having fun in all I do.   I like cold
Coronas and the occasional sexy role playing with my partner.  I also love the work I did on the outside as a

movie on the couch and finding ways to make him smile.  Well, this has to be short, but that is okay, because we

COMMENTARY:  I hope that upon reading this I find you in the highest of
spirits and in good health.  Hopefully, this is a golden opportunity for me to
gain you as a friend.  Maybe I can become that friend that you can share
your thoughts with that you can't share with other men.  What would life be like if we were all scared to explore?  
Before you judge a book by its covers, please take into account first what the author has to say.  That being said,
allow me to introduce myself.  I am Calixto, a 34-year-old from Houston, TX.  I am a very loyal person, honest,
respectful and down-to-Earth.  Feel free to ask me anything.  I've been on lockdown for quite a few years not, so
please bare with me if my conversation skills aren't up to par.  I'm on this site because I am interested in finding a
pen pal - someone with whom I can confied and exchange letters.  If you find you are interested, I hope to hear
from you soon.  You never know.  You have nothing to loose and possibly a great friend to gain. If you decide to
write to me via Jpay.com please include your return address in the body of the email correspondence.  We can
receive email, but we cannot reply back via email, only by snail mail.  That is the reason your return snail mail
address needs to be in the body of the email.  So get at me.

COMMENTARY:  I consider myself to be a well-bred gentleman who is
noble, polite, very sincere and genuine with a sense of understanding.  I know
you understand the loneliness that incarceration can bring.  There are others who understand as well.  They are
looking for friendship.  They are prepared to offer support.  They want to provide encouragement.  I know that
outside companionship could improve my quality of life while I am incarcerated.  I am a scrupulous and
entertaining black male with a caramel complexion, brown eyes, sexy smile and sculptured physique.  I seek those
who appreciate profound and voracious correspondence.  I like sharing knowledge and intellect on a rational
level.  I have a certain serenity about being confident in myself and centered in belief.

COMMENTARY:  I'm 45 years old and have been here more than 20 years.  I
am looking for friendships that will lead me to "the one."  I am very well-read
and intelligent, but more importantly I give "good pen."  Do you?  I am direct and to the point.  I don't play games.  
My world is very small - will you help me make it larger by sharing your world with me?  Let me "live" vicariously
with you and we'll both be the better because of it.  Not only am I a real man, I'll be a real friend.  Friendship is
always the foundation for a relationship that matters.  Will you be the friend that sets the framework for our
future?  I will!

COMMENTARY:  Though born in Texas, I grew up in Tacoma, WA and left
there in 1986.  I travelled the country and ended up getting into troube in
Montana in 1990, which put me in federal prison for federal firearms violations.
When I was released in November 1996, I moved to Texas to take care of my brother and mother.  I ended up in
trouble with Texas authorities in 2001 and am now serving 25 years in prison.  I have been in solitary confinement
since June 2008 for allegedly being a gang member and being openly gay.  If you would like to hear more about
this and what's behind the situation, write and ask.  I will write back to all who write to me.  I am looking for
someone who can overlook my past and see me for who I really am as a person.  If you knew me in Tacoma or we
went to school together, I am still that same big teddy bear.  In fact, my partner started calling me Bear before he
died in 1991.  The one thing I DO NOT NEED IN MY LIFE are haters, bigots, racists and homophobes!  So if that
is you, please save your time, your stamp, your paper and your envelope.  Oh yeah, before I end... "Go
Thunderbirds."  Mt. Tahoma class of 1985.

COMMENTARY:  My name really is Bruce Lee.  I was disavowed by my family
when they found out that I am gay.  I married my high school sweetheart and
we had an open marriage.  That gave me the opportunity to live out my gay
life.  It was great until I found that could not live a double life and went from and open marriage to being only with
men.  When I came to prisoner my partner left me after nearly 3 years.  I am a top gay male.  I enjoy meditations,
yoga and the culinary arts.  I am the middle of six children -- 3 boys and 3 girls.  I do enjoy football, the Patriots
being my favorite team.  I do give the Cowboys my respect for giving Michael Sam a chance.  It's hard being a gay
man, especially one who has been disavowed by his family.  My father was killed in 2004 and he was the only in
the family who accepted my being gay.  I want to love again.  I want to be happy again and that can begin with a
sincere friendship and a hopeful connection.  I hope to find that special someone to begin a new journey.

COMMENTARY:  Hello and how are you doing?  I hope you don't mind my
embarking upon whatever journey you may have had today!  I am simply
trying to reach out to others and understand different cultures of life.  I focus on communication any and
everything that is possible.  Just like the way of my life.  That's why I say to love being a criminal was not a
disgrace, but to remain being a criminal is one.  Life is amazing with many different plays off inside it.  To the point
sometimes when you win you really loose.  And sometimes when you loose you really win.  Winning or losing isn't
anything but an experience of life and something to learn from I was once told and I stand firmly behind that.
Respect, honesty, loyalty, companionship and communications that's divided within understanding help form a
true foundation for a strong friendship in life.  I am a person who keeps an open mind about everything.  I love
challenges throughout life.  I also like poetry, music, sports and having a good time.  I will respond to all.  Hope to
hear from someone soon.  Please know that I am coming up for parole.

person.  I am in pursuit of reaching and gaining sexy gay friends who are open, loving and understandable.  A
sexy bottom who enjoys the fruits of life to the fullest would be great.  Most importantly though, I would like to point
out that although I love all types of beauty, the beauty that shines from inside an individual is the light that I want
