"I remember being a young person a half century or so ago, thinking that I must be mentally ill because of who I was. But I did not know, when I was ten years old, that Lambda Legal was being formed in a small New York City apartment in 1971, and that it would one day come to champion respect under the law for me and mine in the highest courts in the land. We have come a long way. We also have a long way to go. Lambda Legal is going to be a crucial component of future progress and I'm very excited to be part of that vision."

-- Bilerico Project Associate Editor and my friend, Jillian Weiss, in a press release from Lambda Legal announcing her election to their Board of Directors. We're all so very proud of her. Aren't you?
