We’re all just looking for love to change the world (& Friday Links)


I stumbled upon Everyone is Gay—an organization working to improve the lives of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Questioning/Queer, Intersex, and Asexual (LGBTQIA) youth—earlier this week when I was looking through the Chronicle Books page; they’ve published This is a Book for Parents of Gay Kids with the founders, Kristin Russo & Dannielle Owens-Reid. Now I can’t stop humming the song from their music video. I love the line, “We’re all just looking for love to change the world.”

Isn’t that the truth. We all are going to need a lot of love around here next week!

Enjoy the weekend and here are some links of note…
