We had the pleasure of meeting and chatting with Brooke at the GLBT Expo in NYC last year. She was such a lovely, charming, joyful person, so excited to find stories that represented her. We’re so glad to see her keeping that joy and fighting the good fight <3
It’s been a really breakthrough year for the FDNY~
It’s unimaginable and disgusting that this happens to children that don’t even understand what’s happening to them.
