The Curious Case of Candice Keller

We live in a world where we have measured freedom, often times we don’t realize just how limited it is. We can look back 60 years and see the strides we have made, how disease brought our community to the brink, and won the right to marry, should we choose to do so. We have [...]

Trials to Change the Future

Okay, you can argue that it is a more accepting time in history than, let's say 1960, for being LGBTQ and that is true in a way. We are more out than we have ever been, there is more coverage in the media, and more people in positions of power speaking out about who they [...]
