A bunch of folks have asked whether I will be in Irvine next week, for one reason or another.
Alas, the answer is no. I know I told some people last year I was sure I was going to make this year my first Exodus Freedom Conference. And then the bXg conference would have simply been the icing on the cake–with a chance to meet the Christine Bakke (as seen in Glamour and on Good Morning America!!!) But it’s just not going to work out. Finances are tight, and neither Mr. DM nor I can really spare a week now . If we could, we would take a vacation with it. (I’m sure I would get a lot out of the various conferences, but I don’t think they would be especially relaxing or recreational for me, and Mr. DM would just be bored silly.)
For those who are going to be there, Peterson asked if I would mention his open invitation to Exodus leaders to join some “ex-gay survivors” for dinner on Friday, June 29th. The link is to the invitation, you can read more there and RSVP if you so desire. I’ll be honest–I do have mixed feelings about it. But…if it were me I would go.
On a side note, I have been alternately wildly busy and completely exhausted. So I apologize for the even worse than usual delays in replies to emails and comments, and I will deal with them as I can. “Real life” is real crazy right now.
