We Are All Queer

About our Service:
The word itself makes us uncomfortable.  Some LGBTQ activists have used the word to provoke, advocate and assert their pride.  That same attitude can take us to a deeper level of gay-straight solidarity as we deconstruct the line between ‘gay’ and ‘straight’ – beginning with our speaker.  Let’s turn our discomfort to affirmation of our “queer” individuality.  All of us!
