There are donation details in the image below.
Also, if you'd like to donate to Danael's PayPal account, his email is…Continue

The Advocate is reporting on a survey from the Williams Institute that California has more than 50,000 gay parents - making it the largest population of gay parents in the country (not really a big surprise, mind you).

"The Kids Are Alright" opens this weekend and the reviews are looking good so far. New York Magazine calls it "fearless enough to be hugely entertaining." Have any of you see the previews? What do you think?
