well, i googled myself tonight, as i do at least once a week, and i stumbled upon an online news site that i had never heard of, called allvoices.com, which appears to be based in San Francisco. They sent a reporter to the G20 protest 2 weeks ago here in St. John's, and the reported indicated that i spoke briefly, but 'poignantly'. the article was actually very well written and generally did a great job reporting on the event.
Poignantly.. as old and wise as i like to think that i am, there's a word that i had honestly never heard of. guess you still can learn something new every day!
Anyway, in other news, it's been a very busy week of networking as i attempt to build a a foundation for both Pride and Ngale. I've had chats with some folks from out of town, and i think it's time for the St. John's LGBT community to reach out to those in smaller communities in the province. As conservative as things may seem here in St. John's, it's even tougher in rural parts of the province. most LGBT people feel forced to remain closeted, and that's not good.
