Garage sale for the Saints

It's been many years since young gay men in Salem where able to go on the field and play with sticks and balls but the Southside Speakeasy Saints gay men's softball team is here and ready to play ball!

At the boys' first benefit event last week, it was clear that times are changing, a new generation of energetic young people are getting involved in the Salem GLBT community, taking charge and giving back at the same time. The Saints have created a "family". A family that provides support, friendship and an outlet for young people to have meaning for what they do and a purpose to get involved in the community besides going out and partying on the weekends.

I encourage the Salem community to get behind the Saints and show them that they have our full support. Come to the games, be their cheerleaders and support them in showing the ENTIRE Salem community that gay guys can do more than dress up in drag and put on parades.
