I woke up this morning, and the first thought I had was about the people I bonded with at Camp Pride. The camp is a 5 day opportunity for LGBTQ college students and Allies to talk about social justice and bond with each other.
This weekend Campus Pride launched an #IStandwithAndraya national petition drive calling on Central Piedmont Community College (CPCC) to apologize to transgender student Andraya Williams and to take immediate steps to ensure trans inclusion and safety.
Here on The Huffington Post, Shane Windmeyer wrote a piece about becoming friends with Dan Cathy, the president and COO of Chick-fil-A. I was going to respond in the comments section, but I quickly realized that I had lots more than 250 words to say.
I spent New Year's Eve at the red-blooded, all-American epicenter of college football: at the Chick-fil-A Bowl, next to Dan Cathy, as his personal guest. It was among the most unexpected moments of my life.
I had the chance to sit down on Easter Sunday with Zach, "that kid from YouTube," as he is referred by many, to talk about his life since the viral video, the Boy Scouts, and his new book, My Two Moms: Lessons of Love, Strength, and What Makes a Family.
