"While Veatch is hesitant to give away what exactly will be on the roster for those who show up with a desire to find a love connection—whether they’re gay or straight, young or old, black or white, Democrat or Republican—she notes that it will be a structured event involving things like writing exercises, opportunities to talk one-on-one, and chances to present oneself to the entire group. (If you’re coming, you should also be sure to bring along a notebook.)" - Cascadia Weekly
From past attendees:

“I so appreciate you holding this space, and bringing depth, light-heartedness and hope to so many people.”
“Thank you SO much for organizing the event. It was a lot of fun, and I even left to grab drinks after with a new friend!”
"A heart-felt thank you for the invitation and space to be safely me. Thanks to your helpful crew, too! Let’s keep doing this good work--the world needs us!”
