Many people don't know that lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) individuals do not have the same protections in place that straight, non-transgender people do. It is still legal to discriminate against LGBT people in most states in this country! When my grandchildren talk about this civil rights fight and ask me what I did to help ensure that LGBT people had employment and housing protections and the right to marry, I don't want to say, "nothing."
I began my work at the Gay Alliance as a volunteer and I am now employed as the Outreach Coordinator. I have seen the impact of the amazing work that we do and I am proud to be a part of this bike ride fundraiser. Raising some well needed funds for the Gay Alliance is worth a sore butt.
Support me in my effort and I will ride with pride with your name written in indelible ink on my body. Sponsor me at the $50 level or higher and you can pick your body part =) Ooh-lah-lah!
Thank you so much for your support. Rock on! XOXO
