Because of the amount that we’ve raised for charity, some of our milestone incentives have been providing us with some VERY entertaining content.
New Story on Medium: “Curveballs”
So this was a story that I submitted a WHILE ago to an LGBTQIA+ anthology, and it ended up being rejected. I was a little sad, especially since I put my heart and soul in it, but I know that the publishing world can be very picky, so I didn't take it too personally. I …
Is She Becoming a Successful Gay? (Insert Imposter Syndrome Here)
This month has been…a whirlwind. Not necessarily the kind of whirlwind that rips off your weave and tears your Versace dress, but the kind that makes your blood rush so fast that you don’t really feel it until you’re sitting completely still.

The Love/Hate Relationship with Being LGBTQ+
I'm gay. Whether or not I, or anyone wants to believe it, it's an important part of me. I love being gay, but I hate being gay. Well, "hate" might be a strong word. It makes it sound like being gay is a truly miserable experience. I love it more than I hate it, but society …
