    in these stories is that change happens through person-to-person contacts. I've seen that over the past 4 decades on same-sex marriage -- how many families let go of old stereotypes (and even "deeply held religious beliefs") in order to embrace their own child's partner and children. It is a huge burden on those who are open in hostile environments, who bear the brunt of conflict and change. But it is the only thing that really makes a difference. And it inspires me as an ally to do even more to help create a more hospitable workplace and community.
