Laura's Corner

I work very hard and am attending college to obtain my degree in the Human Service field. Writing makes me feel alive and gives me the opportunity to touch those whom I would not be able to otherwise. Last but not least, I have been blessed with two amazing daughters who love me completely and support my dreams. Feel free to contact me with questions, concerns or feedback.

PRIDEfest?

I want to begin by saying that I do not believe it is any of my business regarding what others choose to do in the privacy of their own home.  I do not have enough time in my life to worry about Tom, Sue or Larry or their significant other.

I recently delved into an area that few “straight” individuals choose to go. Some would call it the dark side, others not.  What ever floats your boat, here it goes.  I went to Pridefest.  I went for a few reasons.  One, I got in for free.  Two, I wanted a rarely touched subject to write about.  Three, I was able to talk with a few interesting individuals.  Last but not least, I wanted to address a few concerns with the entire community in general.
