LGBT Issues

 “All people regardless of their sexual orientation or identity deserve a safe and supportive environment in which to achieve their full potential”.  -Harvey Milk

While these words were spoken more than thirty-five years ago they echo in our hearts and we yearn to live by these words, unfortunately we don’t live in that world yet.
