Well, that was our first Olivia vacation and we had such an amazing time. While the cruise experience itself was great, (also a first), the experience of sharing our vacation with so many amazing pioneers of women's, and gay and lesbian rights was humbling. We had no idea what to expect and were completely blown away with the amount of 'her'story on board, not just from the entertainers and ladies of Olivia, but from the individuals we met at dinner, poolside, etc. I want to thank each of you that we met, or did not meet for your continuous role in the fight for equality. Because of you, I have not endured discrimination as a biracial lesbian and I was able to compete in college athletics. I was able to get an education. I will take the torch and continue the fight. I am overwhelmed with gratitude and inspired to do more. And I thought I was just going on vacation. :-)
Thank you again! Wishing you all the very best!
