“Lauren has been a loyal columnist of our national publication for five years. She has devoted many hours into creating opportunity for our publication to hear her voice clearly with power, with adventure, and with insight into her lifestyle with her column, The Uneven Bars. The efforts that she has put into everything that she has contributed to our newsletter has been advantageous not just for her but for our newsletter and for our readers. We have appreciated all the efforts that she has put into with her work here with us to the suggestions and ideas of time that she has passed on to us and, most importantly, we have appreciated the fact that she works in a team effort without fear in making our publication the best that it can be. You can ask for no better a writer or individual than her at this time. … We fully support her efforts and her professionalism as a writer and congratulate her on being awarded The Lesbian Of the Year for the 16th Annual Reader’s Choice Awards.” –John DeBartola
