It presents a wonderful history of this island (the Akokisa and Karanawa Indians, the original islanders). This places the article in perspective. She quotes an islander at length as he discusses his adopted home.
This is definitely a gay-friendly piece. Don’t miss the art-walk on the 3rd Coast. Read the article for details!
