Person of the Week: June 10th- 16th 2018

June is Pride month in the United States, so this month’s theme is inspirational LGBTQ+ People. Our first one is Danica Roem. I picked Danica because I went to the last night of Milwaukee pride yesterday, and Danica was this year’s opening keynote for Milwaukee pride.
