I saw a tweet the other day…and it’s kinda lost in the tweet forest, but basically sent us to an article about an increase in homophobia in schools. Not sure if this is true and would certainly like to think not…So, just to add something to the other side of that equation, and we need to do this as often as we can, here is something about a launch…yep, we missed the actual opening, but the program continues. Onya!
