Washington County Teen Receives National Recognition for Advocacy

Congratulations to Emmett Patterson, a 17 year old transman for receiving national recognition from GLSEN for his advocacy work in Washington County.  Emmett founded Washington County’s first Gay Straight Alliance.  Kudos to him and we hope he enjoys spending time with Chaz Bono, whom he identifies as a hero and source of solace while struggling with his own identity.

Best of all?  When the GSA held its first meeting, 30 people “showed up.”

Kudos to Ledcat for pointing out this story to me.  It is very exciting to think what Pittsburgh’s regional LGBTQ community will look like when Emmett and his peers take the reins.
