Giving Tuesday

#GT HeartSo apparently, it’s #GivingTuesday today.  I can’t say I’ve heard of this charity campaign before, but it seems like a reasonable idea right after US Thanksgiving.  So, here’s one LGBTQ author’s pitch for charitable giving:

My father once told me that to truly belong to a country, you must either defend the borders, or cultivate the soil.  The LGBTQ community is not a country with borders, but it does have enemies, sometimes among those closest to home and dearest to our hearts.  I ask that you give back to the LGBTQ community, if not to me personally.  Consider this my attempt to defend and cultivate this community in need, starting with my own backyard.

I have listed a number of Canadian LGBTQ charities on this page, as well as some international charities dedicated to general poverty and disaster relief.  Please donate the cost that you would have paid for one of my books to a charity of your choice.  There is so much pain and suffering in this world.  Please join me in taking this one small step to make it stop.
