Why aren't you on R2R anymore?

In the last few months of 2020 the owner of Reef2Reef, David Hammontree, elected to impose a rather anti-LGBTQ position in Reef2Reef's policies. Despite my (and other moderator's) clear objections, David stuck to his evangelical (Pentecostal) roots and made it clear this would be the way Reef2Reef moved forward. Accordingly, as a gay man, I cannot and will not associate with such policies. In a time that our reefs around the world need us hobbyists united in a diverse and inclusive show of strength and support, David has elected to sow division.

Please take some time to review this Change.org petition on the matter, taking special note of the timeline of events linked to the petition update, and consider adding your name to the matter.
