Hi there DebraB.!
I am a GLBTQ Ally, and have read many books and I am starting to really focus in on the Transgender community. It is an incrediable passion of mine, and I would encourage anyone to become an "Ally". My husband and I are well known at our local Gay/Lesbian coffee house as Ally's.....and are introduced as such. I am so proud to be human at these moments!
There are things to be taught at these conferences. Society changes by the moment and the GLBTQ's lives are at stake alot of the times. It is VERY political......and worth it.
I was asked by a wonderful F/M (female to male) friend of ours: "Okay, Kelly, why are you so involved with us? Why do you care?"
I almost cried.
My reply............"Because I have children. Because I want them to LOVE whoever they want to love. No matter their sex, colour, nationality, religion. Because I have children..........I fight."
**Thank you for caring, for learning, for making this world a friendlier place to be!!**
