In between I lived in D.C. and Rennes, France. My only regret about New England is that, by southern standards, many people here have bad manners. :-)
I love books--I read a lot of philosophy, ethics, and politics. I especially like leftist and feminist philosophy, though I read all sorts. I can be found curled up with science fiction, fantasy, historical fiction, gardening, and random nonfiction volumes when I'm reading for fun.
I've been an activist since I came out at seventeen while studying abroad. I used to be a field organizer for National Gay & Lesbian Task Force (NGLTF) and the regional director of development at Gay & Lesbian Advocates & Defenders (GLAD). I've also worked for some soulless, predatory corporations. Thankfully I lived to tell the tale.
These days I split my time between teaching fundraising and board service to nonprofits and researching/writing about social and economic justice issues.
I enjoy gardening, movies, reading, cats, living in my cohousing community, playing wargames and roleplaying games, and spending time with friends.
My partner and I are in a polyamorous relationship. We've both been involved with others on a short-term and long-term basis. Right now I'm not seeing anyone, though I'm interested in dating.
