    all the efforts in the late 80's and early 90's that seemed like fighting the ocean. Except there was movement, however slow and painful. There were surprising experiences when you spoke up expecting silence or a negative response. Then the surprising experiences were from people you would never have expected to speak out, making strong, heartfelt comments. That was the Mathew Shepherd milestone.

    The dramatic acceleration seems to have some unstoppable momentum, almost like those laws of physics. The critical mass is out of the bottle?

    It has gotten so much better.  I have no delusions that we will avoid ongoing problems similar to AA discrimination. There will be sorrow, mean, ugly to cope with. As long as we keep setting limits and reaching goals, those numbers will keep going down.

    Power to the rainbow :)
