"On the backs of many who suffered we celebrate that day...who fought for rights at a time when to do so was a great risk..who weathered a health crisis the likes has seldom been seen....left alone to find answers.
Many battles are left to be fought...great and small.
Many people who could use some help..... sick, aging, alone.
I'd like to thank all that came before me...and all the people presently who have taken time and effort to advance us .
It took me well into my 30's to figure out that whether you like it or not.....In being gay......you are part of a community
and the community needs you.
Celebrating together is a wonderful thing.....especially when you have something to be proud about.
in the end, the love you take
Is equal to the love you make."-quoting Malcolm Ingram
