There’s a Better Way: We Sing the Body Rainbow!

Remarks to the 27th Annual Famously Hot South Carolina Pride Our nation’s great poet once proclaimed: “I sing the body electric!” I am confident that my fellow-bearded Walt Whitman would join me today in exclaiming, “We sing the body rainbow!” The baton of hate and bigotry can easily be passed from one generation to the […]
