I am not alone: A woman's story about her experience at Tallahassee pride

I interned with Equality Florida last summer of 2013 when DOMA was overturned in the Supreme Court and Equality Florida was winning and engaging in local battles all over the state. I'd never been so inspired by the efforts of a group of people and I didn't even have to step foot in one of their offices to feel their fire. So, naturally, I wouldn't turn down the offer to volunteer at Tallahassee Pride.
