Dear Lafayette, Oxford, and University Community,

Above all, we thank the inspirational Matt Kessler, who set the wheels in motion to make this happen.

When we began planning this event, few imagined the response it would elicit and we are immensely proud and grateful to be part of this community and overwhelmed by its generous, supportive, and loving spirit. Thank you for making the LGBTQ community welcomed in our community.

With much appreciation,
