Readers in Tacoma…you can celebrate Earth Gay, too but on a different day…April 26, 2014! They’ll be cleaning in Point Defiance Park! Sign up here!
At some point, we might need to organize a bunch of people to go clean up down at the Gay Beach at the Arboretum…it’s a huge mess down there. It looks like people have dumped TRASH down there, in addition to a whole lot of new graffiti on the diving underpass. Looking real messy and dystopic down there. Ugh.
