I have been following Clinton Shane Bradley (they/he) for a while. We started talking last year and I thought it would be great if Clinton and I could have a virtual conversation surrounding LGBTQ+ issues. Fast forward and here we are. I'm looking forward to having Clinton as a guest on May 13th @ 7 PM EST, where we'll be revving up for Pride Month. Please click here for details and to register. Below is a bio about Clinton and myself.
