Climbing 29,035ft because everyone deserves the right to marry who they love.
I am going to climb Mt. Everest to raise awareness for marriage equality and LGBT rights. The climb to the top of Everest would take over two months, and is considered one of the most physically, and mentally demanding challenges in the world. One that I think might be equivalent to the difficulties thousands of young LGBT people face growing up in a society where they are currently being denied basic American rights and privileges. The climb will benefit the Human Rights Campaign Foundation and Equality Illinois, who are both working hard to secure equal rights and protections for everyone on a local and national level.
