NATHAN MANSKE

GuestbloggerThe ImFromDriftwood.com crew is in California for the 10th annual AIDS/LifeCycle, a bike ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles raising money for HIV/AIDS. IFD founder Nathan Manske and guest videographer and editor Jesse James Rice will be sending us exclusive daily Video Stories from some of the 2350 riders who are embarking on the 7-day, 545 mile trek. You can also follow their daily adventures on Facebook and Twitter.

Driftwood We met David at the lunch stop on the first day of the ride. After asking him to share a story with us, he immediately agreed and only asked for 5 minutes to finish eating. I didn't know he was straight at first but sure enough, we ended up getting our first ally story. Following David, we met so many other straight allies we had to start making sure people we were speaking with were actually LGBT. It's inspiring to meet so many allies on the ride.

Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...

  2. Welcome David. My friend is riding on this bike trip with you. Her name is Meichu and she is a wonderful person.

    Nice to hear even in King City there are people more concerned with human decency than with hatred and indifference.
