Gold spoke about his book Crisis: 40 Stories Revealing the Personal, Social, and Religious Pain and Trauma of Growing Up Gay in America and OPM chief John Berry, the highest-ranking openly gay federal employee, spoke about growing up in Maryland and never imagining he would one day occupy such high office. A number of Point scholars were there as well to speak of their goals and aspirations. BROWSING: Andrew Barnett, Jennifer Motruk-Loy, Eve O’Toole, Randy Shulman, Amanda McLernan, and Walter Brindell.
