Chris Stinson is the policy director at OutFront Minnesota, and he shares with Pete OFM's efforts to ensure a good outcome for GLBT folk in the "fiscal cliff" and in the state budget process.  He also talks about the summit OFM held recently, and the strategy to enact marriage equality in the upcoming legislative session in Minnesota.   OutFront Minnesota's mission is to make our state a place where LGBT Minnesotans have the freedom, power, and confidence to make the best choices for their own lives.

Theatre Unbound's upcoming Xtreme Theatre Smackdown comes up just around the corner!
