At a Glance:Michael Knaapen has been a Project Contributor since June 2013, has written 11 entries and currently lives in Washington, D.C..
Michael Knaapen believes people are neither good nor bad - they're simply making do. He loves to organize and celebrate communities, especially the LGBT community, and has served in many capacities in his past homes of Wisconsin and Vermont to do just that. He aspires to found a church, write several books, and adopt a golden retriever which he will name Max. The hardest lesson he ever had to learn was how to say yes; he learned how when John Becker proposed to him seven years ago, and he's been saying it ever since. His hobbies include reading history and poetry, traveling the world, singing, and learning how to relax (which is very stressful).
