Lavender Menace, and Donation to It Gets Better, a Success!

The Lavender Menace exhibition was a hit! Thank you to all who came out in the pouring rain to show their support for me and for the It Gets Better Project. We're still tallying the sales, but know that we raised more than $150 for It Gets Better. Yes!

You can see the interactive art installation (above), which drew interest all night long. Many thanks to Mia (there she is on the right--isn't she great?) for doing such a great job of explaining the story behind this work. More than 14 puzzle pieces were sold, raising money for It Gets Better, taking a stand against gay bullying (and--bonus--revealing the mystery painting underneath).
