Poly Queer Women at the Diesel tonight

There's a poly queer women's social tonight at the Diesel Cafe in Somerville (Davis Square), 7-9pm. If you'd like to attend, but don't think you know anyone who would be attending, leave a comment here so that I can get in touch with you about how to recognize me. Hope to see you there; we should have a large group this month! There are four new women (that I know about) showing up tonight, so I hope you regulars will be able to attend to give them a warm welcome.

    "We all know what this issue is about," declared Sen. Edward Kennedy, a Massachusetts Democrat. "It's not about how to protect the sanctity of marriage. It's about politics - an attempt to drive a wedge between one group of citizens and the rest of the country, solely for partisan advantage."
