Time for our annual round-up of the 30 most frequently read blog posts during 2020.
- 18 posts focus on violent murders of LGBTQ folx, particularly transgender neighbors. One of those posts was from 2019. One I just wrote on Sunday. This is a ‘trend’ I notice each year and it still hurts a lot.
- Five posts center the COVID-19 pandemic
- Three posts explore how local communities and Democrats supported Trump.
- One post reflected on the tragic death of the father of a most loved neighbor, Nina Gibbs Sauer, in an industrial accident. If you see this, Nina, I hope this one attempt to capture your father’s legacy and your own, comforts you this holiday season.
- One post is about our snowflake/social justice warrior fundraiser.
- One post was written by our contributing blogger, Shanon whose columns were cut short by COVID-19.
