I am currently reading "Three Sides to Every Story" by Clarence Nero, and combined with the desire to have a pen and paper pen pal, I think I'd like to be one to an inmate who is part of the LGBTIQQ community. The only problem is, for the few sites I've looked on, people are talking about the lingerie they like or are sexing up their profiles. I just want friendship and correspondence, not something sexual! Is anybody here currently writing to an inmate? Which website did you use? Was I just unlucky in my search? Thanks for your time...

You should be able to find something you want through this website.

But, please, please, please be careful. I am correctional officer at a maximum security prison and know of many inmates who pretend to be gay in order to get pen pals and eventually start asking for money. I'm not saying don't write the inmates, I'm all in favor of that, otherwise I wouldn't be posting a response, just be careful.

I'm a poor college student, so there is no way I'm sending any money. Thank you for the warning!
