As a member of a sexual minority with a history of mental health issues, married to a disabled man, my first and most important priorities are as follows:
- Single-payer health care in my home state of California, if not nationwide.
- Protections for the LGBTQ community in health care, housing, jobs, parental rights, and education.
- Protections for Muslims, Jews, and other religious minorities in freedom of worship and speech, housing, jobs, and education.
- Protections for all persons of color, regardless of immigration status, in freedom of speech and assembly, health care, housing, jobs, and education.
If these issues aren’t addressed, I and many people I love and care about – my husband, my family, my friends and colleagues – will be in grave danger.
About Me: Life long SF Bay Area resident, married since 1991 to Douglas, also a Bay Area native. I trend toward the introverted side of ambiversion, and self identify as a recovering depressive (directly analogous, IMO&E, to being a recovering alcoholic). My passions are science fiction conventions and Burning Man, both attending and volunteering; my current Default World boss is someone I work with in the desert. I have too many stuffed animals and not enough bookshelves, too many half-finished craft projects and not enough hours in the day to finish them.
