2. Lee's News


I'm excited to share the news that I have signed with a literary agent, Danielle Smith of Red Fox Literary! http://www.leewind.org/2014/11/good-news-to-share.html

Other good news this past month was my blog being named one of "5 Websites LGBT Teens Should Check Out" by About.comhttp://www.leewind.org/2014/11/this-blog-in-news.html

And, after my presentation "Discover LGBTQ History" at Cal State Fullerton on November 5, 2014, as part of their afternoon of workshops and discussions on "The Rights and Experiences of LGBTQ Students in Public Schools," one of the attendees wrote me to say:

"I have to say YOU are an inspiring individual-you taught me more than all of my History teachers put together!"

That was super-nice!
