  4. It was a pleasure being on Same Sex Sunday. As a heads up, 100% of the royalties this month from the marriage equality children’s book, ‘My Uncle’s Wedding,’ are going to GetEQUAL! Consider getting a copy for a local school, library, or even as a father’s day gift! It’s a great way to spread tolerance and fight for LGBT equality at the same time. :-)
