more happy COLAGErs at the retreat
brooksx and friends at the retreat
Last weekend, COLAGErs from up and down the east coast descended on Baltimore to participate in our 3rd Annual NE Regional Retreat and add some queerspawn voices to the resounding chorus of LGBTQ activism at Creating Change 2012!
The closing circle: COLAGErs toss thread between each other and share what they’re taking away from the retreat in their heads, their hearts and their feet.
Some of the quotes posted during the PP2 workshop. COLAGErs were asked to stand next to a quote they identified with and explain what it means to them.

The retreat participants head down to the Lower East Side’s Bluestockings bookstore and activist center for a very special book signing & celebration with Tina Fakhrid-Deen, author of Let’s Get This Straight, a resource book for youth living in LGBTQ-parented households.
