    It was an honor to be able to be involved in this assembly, and judging by the number of people who have come to talk to me about their own experiences with LGBTQ+ issues in just one day, I think it’s safe to say that we’ve been able to start the conversation around difficult topics at La Salle and made people more empathetic towards others. Thank you so much for the photos, Reilly!
