Michigan comes through!

Received a wonderful email from the Triangle Foundation.

Greetings,

I work for Triangle Foundation - Michigan's GLBT advocacy organization - and we are taking a keen interest in this San Diego Pride youth admissions issue. First off, thank you for all that you are doing to raise awareness of this issue and the effort you have already put into this - particularly in regards to meet with the organizers and posting updates online.

With that said, let me tell you a little bit about why we are interested in this issue - despite the fact that we're in Michigan. We produce Motor City Pride, which is Michigan's largest Pride event, and we are active with InterPride - the international organization unifying all of the Pride events. We are also vocal advocates of GLBT youth issues and are strategic partners with a number of national organizations that have a strong interest in GLBT youth issues.

We are bringing this matter to a number of people's attention on a national level and are preparing some remarks and a press release on why this policy is so outrageous. I was hoping that you would be willing to lend a quote to the press release we are preparing. Particularly speaking to the impact this event has had on your life and the importance of Pride events to GLBT youth.

I would also be interested in speaking with you more about this and sharing any developments on the avenues we are pursuing regarding this issue.

Thank you again for all that you are doing and I look forward to hearing back from you.
