Celebrate my birthday & Pride Month by fundraising for MTPC!

I'll be 36* on Thursday June 28th (also the anniversary of the Stonewall Rebellion, which explains a lot). Please help me celebrate that and GLBTQIA Pride Month by helping me fundraise for the Massachusetts Transgender Political Coalition. 
(*Double chai, the Hebrew word for "life", symbolized by the number 18. $613 is to honor the traditional number of mitzvot in the Torah -- but please feel free to exceed it.) 

MTPC works to end discrimination on the basis of gender identity and gender expression. I chair their Interfaith Committee for Transgender Equality (ICTE). We passed most of the MA Trans Equal Rights Bill into law in November, but public accomodations was not included, so we need to file that bill in January and pass it asap. And we have a lot of other work to do. 

Please consider giving -- and whether or not you can give, please share this Wish with everyone you can. 

PLEASE NOTE -- donations go through BAGLY (Boston Alliance of GLBT Youth), MTPC's fiscal sponsor (fairly common arrangement between an older larger nonprofit and a newer smaller one). 

Thank you,
