You were shoulder to shoulder with gay men in the early years of the fight for recognition. You carried us on your shoulders through the dark time of the AIDS plague. You led us all in the most recent battle for marriage equality. And you continue to rally, coordinate, and spearhead legislative and political efforts today.
I see you, my keyring clanging, lanyard wearing, clipboard toting, life changing warrior women. And I’m ever so grateful to be part of your tribe.
