Today, at the monthly Atlanta Pride Committee (yes, it has been proven safe to allow me to serve on committees) I learned something new. May 17 is International Day Against Homophobia (IDAHO). Check out the IDAHO website for information, including an interview with the founder of IDAHO.
To the left of the web page is a list titled Global Information– guess what? The United States isn’t listed. Honestly, I was shocked, but maybe I shouldn’t be. I’m more likely to have a number hit covering a Dolly Parton song than our President making a positive public statement in regards to the day.
I want to see some action regarding IDAHO! Hopefully, I’m not the only one. Since my discovery occurred only IDAHO an hour ago, I am still reading information from the site; I’ll post more information as I continue to research.
OK. On a much, much lighter note– below is a picture of me in my new favorite shirt for the time being with my beautiful friend/coworker Unni (also known as the Unester–pronounced une–ster).
I had a woman give me an odd look, which made me think she was about to throw her sandwich at me; then she says, “I like. I’m a hot mom.”
