The Network / La Red's "Paint The Town (La) Red" event is TONIGHT, and I oh so wish I were there instead of home sick (it's just a cold, though); especially if my Julia could be my date. I've been a supporter and client of The Network for several years; it's a wonderful and all too small and rare organization. Founded in 1989, The Network works to end abuse in lesbian, gay bisexual, transgender, SM and polyamorous communities. Especially partner abuse, including what's most commonly called "domestic violence". Another way to support them is by donating your old cell phones: http://www.thenetworklared.org/cellphone.htm.
