So in just a few hours, I will be on my way to Stanford University to speak. I am already in California and I really love it here. The weather is nice, the food is great, and the city of San Francisco is absolutely beautiful. As I have stated before, I will be talking about marriage equality and my experience on living with gay parents. … Continue reading Today is the Big Day!!
