Last week I had meetings with two wonderful leaders in the LGBT community, Charles Robbins, Executive Director of the Trevor Project and Jody Huckaby, Executive Director of PFLAG National. Both are passionate men of vision who graciously gave me an hour of their time. They opened up their contacts to help me connect with people in other cities about the High School Diploma Program that we started at the LA Gay & Lesbian Center. They opened their hearts to share what some of their dreams were for the community.
At the end of my week, my heart felt so thankful for all the people across the nation that are creating change for our LGBT youth. Thank you Gandhi for reminding us that we must first “Be the change you wish to see in the world.” And if you need a light to hold up as an example, please look to Jody Huckaby and Charles Robbins . . . they are amazing role models. . . .
