Do Ask! Do Tell!
|You’re probably wondering what we do for Thanksgiving. It’s not a holiday in the Netherlands, which makes it a challenge to stay home and cook and eat all day – not to mention relax and recover the day after.To not miss this extraordinary holiday, we’re inviting everyone to join Love Exiles in a celebration of life and love in the Netherlands. It’s the holiday season and a great time to
– connect with old and new friends
– meet new love exiles
– celebrate love
– share our thoughts on the efforts to stop homophobic discrimination in US immigration law.
We’ll be at Restaurant Tjing Tjing, Cornelis Troostraat 56-58, 1072 JH Amsterdam. Come find out how delicious pumpkin pie can be!
And of course we want to have our families there as well, so please bring the children.
Love Exile Karin Bogliolo will join us via a live Skype link from Scotland to share about the book her US partner has written, “Torn Apart”, due to be released early in 2011. Eat Pray Love author Liz Gilbert has written the book’s introduction (and lobbied in Washington for UAFA on behalf of love exiles).
Inspired by the It Gets Better Campaign, UvA student Eliot will conduct video interviews with couples and individuals.
Save the date, tell friends who are exiles, and let’s have a blast on the 28th.
Lin and Martha McDevitt-Pugh for the Love Exiles Board
