Catch Up

Hey, Cynthia here, how are you doing? It's been a while. So I wanted to check in and just talk about some of the things that have been going on some of the observations that I've had, and can continue to share some tidbits and insights, in helping everyone to learn to move out of these spaces that we've created that we think are protective. But what they really do is they box us in.

And then you go to, you know, a larger group, once you have that kind of built to a point where you can then more comfortably move to, you know, more than societal level, and you don't have to be LGBT or anything else. It's just simply where you feel you aren't fit
