"Personally, I feel very lucky to the grown up in Ladner. I have almost always been loved and accepted. The times were a little different then; I didn’t come out till my early 20s (I am turning 42 this coming week). I love that our little town now has the rainbow benches. I was really rooting for a crosswalk but I’m proud of the steps Ladner has made in showing the diversity and acceptance." -Michelle

Says Zooey about her parents and the LGBTQ+ community: "Ruff!"

Note: It is almost Michelle and Jen's 3rd year wedding anniversary!
