This is a picture of my friends Paul and Valerie planting a tree at the Equality House in Topeka. Their father transitioned when she was in her mid forties and identified as a lesbian. She was brave and strong and raised two utterly lovely human beings. She passed away last week.
Found this at my mom's house today. From 2002, I think. Not the cutest picture of me. Dogs, from left to right: Stuffty, the giant stuffed dog Annie, my sister's neurotic liver-spotted baby of the family Dora, my sweet doggie Shadow, aka ShweeShweeMarie, our first and most awesome Dalmatian who died shortly after this pic was taken. She was a smiler.
