Lesbian Soccer Mom Takes On California

Folks in California may get a glimpse of self-proclaimed “lesbian soccer mom” Jennifer Schumaker, as she walks her way up from San Diego to San Francisco for her “Walk For Togetherness,” to raise awareness for the LGBT struggle for equality.

Apparently you can call her at (760) 877-4396–did she really put her phone number on the internet?–and of course we will be calling her twenty times a day, although we promise we’ll be really nice. We totally dig Miss Jennifer, and believe her message is quite clever. If you see her, say hi, give her a bottle of water, whatever. You can also go to her website and make donations to the walk, or read her blog.
