The staff at Bilerico was tipped off to a wonderful workshop happening in a few weeks at the University of Indianapolis. It's good to see workshops on these issues; I've heard stories that GLB issues are occasionally seen as unimportant by some up-and-coming therapists. While it's not a huge rally, or a dicey political situation, these events represent real progress.
