Deborah

Worcester, MA
United States
Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
Worked four years to bring GLBT awareness and training to the staff of my local community health center.
Why are you participating?: 

Bring awareness to a wider community that no one, including those of us who live with disabilities, should be judged or limited by other people's assumptions or prejudices.

Erin

Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
I help my summer campers develop confidence in their abilities and teach them that they can do amazing things no matter how the world sees them.
Why are you participating?: 

I am participating because it's important to recognize just how complex people are and that we cannot be defined or judged by a few words or our appearance.

Ricardo

Boston, MA
United States
Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
Creating a pride club at my school has helped offer not only a space for support, but for conversations about the importance of self-exploration and understanding.
Why are you participating?: 

Because visibility is key.

Ali

Sturbridge, MA
United States
Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
I stood outside of grocery stores asking people to support LGBT rights for nine months. I launched the "Reject Stereotypes, Accept People" Campaign at a conservative business university. I always compliment people on their style.
Why are you participating?: 

Because after I dyed my hair purple and got tattoos, people started rolling their eyes every time I spoke. Because I grew up not knowing girls could be gay. Because LGBT youth are 4 times more likely to contemplate suicide or self-harm.

Maddie

Worcester, MA
United States
Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
I am an outlet to my friends, family and even strangers to come to and ask questions regarding safe sex and the LGBTQ community. I was the first person one of my friends came out to.
Why are you participating?: 

I have never had negative labels. I created and publicly identified by my own words and actions my whole life. Labels describe me; my personality, my orientation, my gender identity, how I see the world, but I never let them define me.
