Thank You and Book Winners
I wanted to say a big thank you to everyone who came around to my blog on either WordPress or Goodreads and read my uncle’s story. Between the two locations I had over 800 visitors, many of whom left comments of encouragement, determination and hope. You made me feel like my uncle’s life had impact and made a contribution far beyond its brief span. You are all wonderful people and I’m honored to be sharing my stories and this effort towards equality with you.
Thanks also to all the other participants in the Hop against Homophobia and Transphobia. As I hopped around I read stories that were sweet and poignant, painful and angry, funny and meaningful. I read thoughtful analyses, determined optimism and helpful advice. I was given links to allies I did not realize we had. And throughout, I was delighted to find so many people participating, commenting and sharing their own stories. Slowly but surely we will move forward to a world of equality and respect for all the variations of human experience.
I selected three winners for my ebooks from the (many!) comments on my two sites, by the time honored method of names in a hat (or in this case a large mixing bowl.) My name-drawer randomly pulled out:
Mary (from WordPress)
Lana (comment 26 on Goodreads)
Foretta (from WordPress)
I will be contacting you for the titles and formats you would like. If you don’t hear from me, let me know. Thanks to everyone for participating. I know the books were just icing on the hop itself and being part of this wonderful community effort.
