Marriage equality passed this year in New York State and I am thrilled! Wahoo! We are headed in the right direction. But many people don't realize how much work there is left to do. It is still legal to discriminate against LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) people in most states in this country! Youths are still taking their own lives after repeated incidents of LGBT bullying. Transgender people are still denied medical care, housing and jobs.
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 so proud to be a part of this organization. Raising some well needed funds for the Gay Alliance to help support equality is worth a sore butt.
It has now become a tradition for me to write the names of my wonderful supporters on my bod so that you are all with me as ride. 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
