Treasured Saddleback Students:
With the end of the academic year approaching, I want to take a moment to talk about Gay Pride month (June), before many of you take off.
Many of you identify as LGBTQIA. So do I. I have been together with my husband for 34 years and been legally married for the last eight of them. Like some of you, I was bullied in school and spent the first quarter century of my life in the closet, to protect myself, keep a roof over my head and keep a job. It does get better, I promise you; but I know the night seems longest when dawn is imminent.
