  3. Thank you again for your events, we started in 1980 with our SF LGBT community that did not know what letters even were about, in those days and most lived in "supposed to be…." actions. Today we were first to shoot the interviews with Judges of SF Marriages in 2012 reinstated DOMA and proud to meet the movers and shakers. We worked with LGBT TV Show (In the Life) and our hopes are to be a voice of shifts in identity and growth in 2015.
