#95 – Picnic In The Park, And Some Brave New Steps…

Catching up with the last few months, because this is my forum, and I have every right to “spike the ball,” using my home field advantage, of course! ^_-;

Saturday, May 21st was another adventure, as well as another small step for me getting out and about among the mainstream world, for that day was the River City Gems picnic, the second event of the month, at a park along the Sacramento River, by one of Sacramento’s many suburbs.

#64 – First Time Out – Going to River City Sparkle 2010

I’m getting ready to head up there in a few hours, up to Sacramento, CA from my home. It will be my first time out in public, and in the company of others like myself. I hope to take some pictures, and of course, chronicle my experience there.

I’ll be posting when I have a chance. It should be fun! For those who are going – I’ll see you there soon!

Hugs and kisses,

You go, girl! 😛

So, I’m sniffling and sneezing, and I’m hoping to beat this, because I’ve got a few things coming up – Primarily, I’ve made the decision to attend my first public event where I’ll meet other folks like myself. I’ve bought a ticket, and booked a hotel room to spend an overnight stay up in Sacramento for River City Sparkle this year, put on by the River City Gems, a relatively new (three years running) transgender support group in the area. (About an hour and half from my hometown.) They have members  from around the area, including the Central Valley (where I’m at), the Bay Area, the Sierra Nevada region, and neighboring states. (In fact, one of my new friends on PINKEssence, encouraged me to attend the event.)
