In the scramble to virtue-signal support for Zooey Zephry, my former employer, the Poverello Center, is eagerly joining the fray on social media.
I’m glad the Poverello Center decided to chime in, because it allows me to remind these non-profit hostages that some of their clients haven’s survived our community’s liberal generosity, like Sean Stevenson and Lee Nelson, two men who are dead because they mistakingly assumed the Poverello Center could manage their volatile clientele.

Nevin Graves ALSO added his two cents.
Who is Nevin Graves? Two years ago he was a brief candidate for the School Board, but withdrew his nomination after some pretty creepy accusations were made against him. I wrote about those accusations at the time, documenting the claims. Here is part of what I documented:
