Happy Coming Out Day! Will you be coming out to someone today?
There is something really important going on today that I’m really excited to tell you about. Today is the launch of Catapult, a Kickstarter-type website that is all about projects for women and girls. Beginning today at 1:11 p.m. (EST), I’ll be hosting the LGBTQ-themed hour to raise money and awareness for this amazing project developed by Equal Ground.
So today we’ll be raising the $13,000 it will cost to create vocational opportunities for these women. These centers will teach lesbian and bisexual women how to speak and write English, basic computer skills, financial management, personal hygiene and social etiquettes — all things they can use to better their lives. Please visit Catapult.org and give if you can to this much-needed project.
