Hi! I just wanted to let you know that there's a super fun festival in North Carolina each year. Last year I was there and there was even a trans speaker, and there's a lot of religious stuff as well as discussions about today's problems(not all LGBT stuff, since its not centered on it)in the youth group, they even asked for preferred pronouns, and there was and LGBT+ talk circle for LGBT youth only. It might be something people might want to check out. Its called the Wild Goose Festival

“They have called this day the eleventh of March! And whomsoever of you gets through this day, unless you are shot in the head or somehow slain, you will stand at tiptoe when e'er you hear the name again.  And you will get excited at the name March the eleventh! We happy few, we few, we band of brothers… our names will be as like… household names!  And those who are not here… be they sleeping or doing something else, they will feel themselves sort of crappy!  Because they are not here to join the fight on this day the eleventh of March!

Move out.”

-Sgt. Buck Frobisher, March 11, 1999

Due South finale “Call of the Wild”

The Eleventh of March

They have called this day the Eleventh of March! And whomsoever of you gets through this day, unless you are shot in the head or somehow slain, you will stand at tiptoe when e'er you hear the name again, and you will get excited at the name March the Eleventh!

We happy few, we few, we band of brothers. Our names will be as like household names. And those who are not here, be they sleeping or doing something else, they will feel themselves… sort of crappy. Because they are not here to… to join the fight, on this day, the Eleventh of March!
