Whether you're a regular Out for Good reader, or have just landed here for the first time, you'll glean pretty quickly that one purpose of this blog is to celebrate the upbeat, positive, and good. As I noted when this blog was launched, ...There are lists and lists of problems and challenges that seem all too familiar in the terrain of LGBT life. Sometimes, it just seems really hard....And yet, there are those other times too. Where despite the pitfalls and challenges...there is some pretty good stuff happening...So yes, I am also Out For Good.
Please join with me in literally going Out for Good - celebrate the 10th anniversary of the LGBT Center with me by doing good for others! In the process, we'll also have a bit of fun, a bit of fitness, and a bit of colorful rainbowy-goodness too.
