I will not stop

Wednesday, October 19th, 2022

Growing up in the 70's and 80's with the brutal beatings and murders of our LGBTQ brothers and sisters, losing so many friends to HIV/AIDS, I have gone to too many funerals. I am a survivor, a warrior, and an activist.  I am a mestiza mom, and a wife.  Although I am now disabled, I continue to fight for all children, especially those who are abused and neglected, our LGBTQ+ children, and more. I will not stop.

I proudly wear my FREE MOM HUGS whether it's PRIDE or not, because I know what it's like not to have a parent who loves you.  At the Pride Parade, I gave more hugs to even more people than ever before.  To the point that my young son started shouting that I was giving "Free Mom hugs tonight! Tomorrow they're $1.00!" as a joke.  If you see me, and I'm wearing my FREE MOM HUG T-shirt, please feel free to ask if you need one.  It doesn't need to be Pride.
