About the Author

Award-winning writer and journalist, Kathleen Archambeau has been advocating for LGBTQ rights since 1992. Her work in the LGBTQ community was instrumental in Dance of America Foundation's acquiring 501c3 status. As a founding member of the James Hormel LGBT wing of the San Francisco Public Library, she has supported access to LGBT history and literature for all. Awarded for her work as VP of the Board and Co-Chair of the Fundraising Committee for one of the largest mental health agencies dedicated to serving the queer community, she, along with the Board, raised more money than the prior 10 years for mental health services for underserved LGBT clients grappling with AIDS, breast cancer, coming out, gender identity, self-esteem, employment, custody and housing discrimination issues. A same-gender ballroom dancer, Kathleen and her wife participated in the Gay Games in Cologne and won two medals. They encouraged LGBTQ teens to find like-minded friends through a film by Robert Cortlandt for The Trevor Project, the It Gets Better video project series aimed at reducing LGBTQ teen suicide, 4X more likely than straight teen suicide rates and 8X more likely for LGBTQ teens in religiously condemning households. Archambeau wrote a regular column of inspiring profiles for one of the largest LGBTQ newspapers in the US and the first in California, the SAN FRANCISCO BAY TIMES.
