Just wanted to let you know, the "polls have closed" on the voting for the Lambda Legal "Life Without Fair Courts" cartoon contest (If you haven't heard, I am one of 5 finalists in this contest....Lambda Legal is an important national organization committed to achieving full recognition of the civil rights of lesbians, gay men, bisexuals, transgender people and those with HIV through impact litigation, education and public policy work). The winner is to be announced on August 14th, so... keep your fingers crossed, (well, not literally. That would make getting through the day awkward, no?). Oh, and if you're interested in seeing the 5 finalist cartoons in the contest, they are still posted at the Lambda Legal website for viewing.
I just wanted to say a HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who took the time to vote for me, and to send me such warm, supportive, comments and e-mails. It was incredibly touching, and I am so, so grateful!
