I am really excited to participate in this Hop coming up in May. As a Marylander, I am proud of our state that it will soon be joining the short list of states that will allow same sex marriage. Homophobia is a real problem in this country and it makes me sad whenever I hear about a suicide of a man because he was bullied so much for being gay. That kind of bullying needs to start. And I am excited to play my part in this Hop Against Homophobia.
