Project Pride has been one of the most important and profoundly moving experiences of my life. These young people astound me on a regular basis, with their acceptance of each other, their passion and enthusiasm, their strength, their compassion, and their determination to make the world a more loving place.
It is not easy for them. Nor is it always easy to support them. The world is full of people who are too-ready to jump to conclusions, be proud of their ignorance, and reject things they don't understand.
But these young people need us to be on their side.
And I need them. They are beautiful.

Please join us. There is laughter and silliness, and poignancy and depth. But mostly, there is love.
