Hello. My name is James Conner and I just wanted to take a minute to tell you how much we need and appreciate “Out & About Newspaper” in Knoxville . This publication is signaling the dawn of a new Era in East Tennessee, with its articles spotlighting gays and lesbians from all walks of life, as well as bringing to light injustices and other issues that affect our community. I never would have thought I would see a gay newspaper reach Knoxville! But a big thank you goes out to all the people at the forefront of all this. I doubt many would carry that cross if given the charge. But again, thank you. I just wanted to let you know: Knoxville is listening!
