    yes! I enjoyed the presenter and feel confident in the abilities and intent of the project based on my impression. It is so valuable to take your own personal experiences and make things better for many others. Good luck to them, hope it is a great success. -Mic

    Thank you so much for making this voting system possible. I will contact you today – in order for you to send a message to a travelling Calgarian youth who may wish to vote in this as well. Appreciation for making this on-line voting possible in order to participate, as someone taking a sabatical from Calgary – while still being very involved. As someone who has always advocated for freedom in one’s own identity – with Love and compassion – I have, as a straight person been very violated as an individual, both by family as well as religious institutes – when living my life as equitably as possible. Superior complexes with respect to any people group is inappropriate and does not generate peace. I see all people – of whichever lifestyle they choose – as whole people – each of us is on our own healing path – together. <3 I vote a big YES to this. Gracious! (You know me - have to write a mini 'positive' rant.) LOve to all - Vi Gerbrandt

    Congrats Queertopia on your presentation and an electronic process for the many Calgarians who are not able to attend the potluck tonight.

    Would love to learn more about the project via weblinks and the impact of the workshop! Can’t wait for the update and good luck tonight.

    I like the video proposal format, and since I can’t make it to the potluck I’m so happy I can vote online.
