Terry Rielly Teddy Bears Picnic Report 7/13/14
For the 5th time in 6 years, I attended Terry Rielly's annual Teddy Bear's picnic; and for the 4th time, I was "Head Nurse" at the teddy bear hospital. Terry was one of the first local celebrities to open his arms to me, and welcome me into the community. When I was a newly-out transwoman in a town that did not have very much diversity, an endorsement from Terry went a long way to helping me gain a positive reputation as a community leader and overall good citizen. It was an honour to return again this year for another successful event.
