Amazing end to an amazing week....

Last night, the week culminated in a candlelight vigil honoring the life and legacy of Matthew Shepard. We had a wonderful lineup of speakers including: Rev. Martha Munson , Dr. Cyndy Anderson, Bob Holmes, Chris Campf, Nicole Peterson, Brian Wells, Diana Shaheen, Kim Welter, Rev. Jim Ray, and a musical tribute by Rob Joki.

Personally, I was moved by every single one of the speakers. Each of them did a wonderful job providing information and sharing personal experiences.

Here are a few pics of the speakers...

After the speakers were done there was a moving performance by Robert Dennick Joki and a candlelight vigil. Here are some pictures...

Oh yeah there was a dessert buffet and I must say GRAPES + CREAM CHEESE + CRUSHED UP BUTTERFINGERS = "OH NO SHE DIDN'T" I think I personally ate about 4 lbs of that!

Here are some pictures of the COME OUT DANCING event from the night before.

I was glad not to see me although I have to confess I myself wasn't worried about implications about my sexual orientation as opposed to unflattering photographic evidence of me! Beautiful shots. Thank you so much for all your hard work this week. I am proud to be part of this amazing group of advocates.
