I have a vague memory from childhood of weaving a little basket from strips of paperboard into a square, but it wasn’t Easter. It was closer to summertime and it had something to do with our Catholic Church. I also remember helping to construct a quasi-Maypole and the girls took turns with the streamers. Was […]

Just some random Easter memories. What comes to your mind this time of year? As children, we had designated baskets. Mine was a big wicker style with a floppy yellow bow.

Submitted by Peter Mastracci Here at the GLCC, people often ask us about the history of the center. They want to know where we’ve been located, what we’ve done, and most commonly, how long we’ve been around.

As popular as they are, the #AMPLIFY posts don’t have the reach that my original blogging does which affirms my commitment to keep these stories intertwined with the rest of the posts. In between writing about the epidemics of violence, the harm of anti-poverty initiatives and some of my own personal experiences with negative factors, we all need the stories of lives lived in spite of those obstacles. I believe reading about the everyday experiences of LGBTQ people in their own words fleshes out the posts that I write about people who can no longer speak for themselves.
I highly recommend this as a holiday gift for the pets and their people in your life. It is a very reasonable price for a nice gift that will bring year round comfurrt. And being designed by a pet massage therapist, the wraps are amazingly well contured to the bodies of pets.
