Rep. Pelosi

It's a bit blurry, but that's Representative and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi at the Sewall-Belmont House and Museum.  The event was an intimate conversation with Rachel Maddow in celebration of Pelosi's 25 years of service. There are much better pictures on Sewall-Belmont's Flickr stream (The shoes are my favorite. I was wearing those in brown.), and here's a short piece from the Post

Pride 2012

DC's Pride Parade and Festival is one of the nicest times of the year. It's a celebration of diversity and cooperation, acceptance, of yourself and of others.  Also, look at all the pretty colors.

The PFLAG organization for Parents, Families, and Friends of Lesbians and Gays, is pretty much the most heart warming thing that you'll ever see, and a good reminder that nobody gets to define what a family is except that family.

The DC Public Schools has a commitment to providing a safe place for all kids--every single one.  Sure there are still problems that need to be addressed in the system, but there are a lot of people here saying "You have the right to be just who you are," and that's something that, sadly, doesn't hold true for all school kids in this country.
