I am proud to report that this weekend I was honored with the Rainbow of Possibilities Award by the GSA of Worcester Academy. In addition to accepting the award, I gave the keynote speech to a collection of students from Gay Straight Alliances from across Massachusetts. I was deeply impressed by the students and am proud to be considered a role model.
