I am writing to say that you all left such a powerful impression on me. I felt, in that room, that we had created a space big enough, wide enough, open enough, accepting enough for us ALL. This is the world I want to live in: one where we don’t compete for scarce space or for the one spotlight, where we don’t try to bring other people over to OUR position or identity, but rather meet each other where and how we are. Where difference is understood to be a positive value. Thank you for being so open, so honest, so brave.
From the campus of Colgate University in Hamilton, NY, I send you my love and my respect.
