(Hat tip to Queers United)
I wish I had seen this earlier. Yesterday was LGBT Center Awareness Day. On my old university campus, we had a little one room center that was like an oasis we could retreat to whenever we needed healing and support and community. I spent numerous afternoons just hanging out there, doing my homework or hanging out with my daughter. It was one of the few identity-affirming spaces on campus and I'm glad that I had access to it and benefited from what it had to offer.
