How about starting off the first Monday of 2010 with some good news? Scratch that. Make that awesome news. Because today marks the end of a 22-year-old policy that was not only discriminatory and homophobic, but detrimental to public health.
I'm waiting eagerly for the start of a new year. 2010 is not just any year for me; it's the 20th anniversary of my first role with the board of an organization working for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender rights.
