Hi, all! I have some nifty speaking gigs coming up, and I wanted to let you know about them. I’m going to be speaking in Seattle on Thursday Nov. 3 to the Secular Student Union of the U of W, and in Washington D.C. on Saturday Nov. 12 at the Center For Inquiry DC Fifth Anniversary Celebration, on the topic of “What Can The Atheist Movement Learn from the LGBT Movement?” I’ll be doing Q&A and/or schmoozing at both events — so if you’re in the area, come by and say hi! Details are below.
