    Thanks for posting this. I didn’t hear about it until last weekend. I really want to go, but I’m still up-in-the-air because I may either go to the Ex-Ex-Gay protest of the national NARTH conference in Denver on Saturday or help my partner rake leaves in her back yard. (The raking isn’t so bad, it is traditionally followed up with by sitting around an outdoor fire in the chiminea and having shots of ice-cold Patron :)

    Gosh, nothing ever happens in in my life and here I am faced with three great things to do!
    Decisions… decisions… decisions…

    As someone that has been down the mountain on a bicycle a few times, I can only say that Michelle Dumaresq must be nuts! Her story is well told in the film, 100% Woman. I think her panel should be interesting.

    I’m still sore that I had to miss you at last year’s conference :(
    (I guess starting my new job was a little more important)
