After the Vigil

The vigil in Riverside, California, hosted by my writing teacher Gayle Brandeis, was a wonderful experience. Gayle's parents, children, and husband came, along with many Women in Black and lots of other locals. It was a nice experience to get to know Gayle not only as my writing teacher, but also a fellow political activist.

I just fired off an email to her spilling the beans out about my own gender situation, and how this explains my writing a transgender-themed novel. It's time that she knew. I'll see how she responds.

Of course, I also introduced her to the Democracy Cell Project, hopefully bringing her into yet another activist channel - and making her a huge asset for it.
