An idea worth spreading
As a community that has fought, and continues to fight, for equal rights and our families, the LGBT movement can lead America in reform to focus on the needs of families, children, and every day people.
I'm passionate about
I believe we have a crisis around families in this country, and am passionate about creating the policy and cultural change we need to support families and children.
My TED story
I have been watching TED presentations for years and love that so many people from so many backgrounds have the opportunity to share their deep insight. Every time I watch I think the world is a better place for this kind of sharing.
