On Sunday, ROSMY celebrated Springtime In The Garden at Lewis Ginter Botantical Garden. Each year, the event honors the organization’s annual Catalyst Award recipients. The Catalyst Award recognizes a group and individual that brings about significant change to LGBT youth.
For 2010, the organization recognized Mitchell Gold and Mothers & Others. Mitchell Gold authored Crisis, a collection of stories about growing up gay in America. ROSMY has been using Gold’s book as the basis for their curriculum in training sessions across Virginia. Mothers & Others stands up for equal rights for LGBT children, family and friends.
