A few weeks ago, Caitlin Bernardi (Rainbow is her "club name") told me that once her reign as Miss Jr. Gay Pride ended, "Everybody's going to forget about Rainbow. That's how it always is. No one will remember me."
Last night was her last night. Today, she woke up at noon and walked with her best friends along the Willamette River. Maybe people will forget about Rainbow. But I know two people who won't ever forget Caitlin:
(Caitlin, Heather and McArthur, age 18)
