Finalists in the Readers Choice Awards

The finalists have been announced in what I’m told is a record-breaking number of votes cast for the Keystone Alliance Gaylife Newsletter 2016 Readers Choice Awards. I am honored to be voted as a finalist in nine categories. I am especially proud that the #AMPLIFY project is a finalist as well. Here are the categories where I am nominated (click on this link to read the entire ballot.) Scroll to the bottom for more information.

I’d really appreciate your vote simply because AMPLIFY has given me a new appreciation for the act of noticing, of paying attention.
