Lightning Challenge #36 (Complete)

Great LGBT+ People

Hosted by Xanthuss

We, the weird and sideways folk, have always walked the line of rejection. It's what makes us visionaries. We who are pushed away, to the edge, can see beyond the borders of reality. We frighten the privileged with our possibilities.
— Gail Carriger

Saint Tagara. I was in the middle of revising the articles for all of the Saints anyway, so this just seems like good timing. Plus she has a far happier ending now than she originally did, so Tagara thanks you.
