Favorite Dish in the OPALGA Potluck

OPALGA October potluck; I was very tired, but it was nice to stop by for a hour, eat some good food, and chat with queer friends and allies; always rejuvenating, being in that space. Favorite dish was the hot cheese, artichoke, jalapeño dip — I went back for seconds, even though I was full…
