I am the proud (straight-but-not-narrow) staff advisor to to a GSA (Gay Straight Alliance) in a rural Canadian high school. Ontario has provincial legislation supporting groups like this one, and we are working for a future when social justice is achieved, and groups like ours won't be necessary.
We are looking forward to welcoming the world to Toronto, at World Pride 2014. Join us!
