"And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom" ~Anais Nin
We all have moments when we're faced with the decision of expressing the truth of who we are or remaining silent. But my LGBTQ+ friends, and especially their young children, are doing so in a politicized environment of hate and endangerment. "A Pride of Poppies" is a testimony to the courage, beauty, and gift they give to everyone who takes the risk to blossom. The project includes resources and oral histories.
