MY GOAL: Publish a book by April that represents stories from the whole spectrum of the LGBTQI community to provide a resource for our youth to see that it truly does get better.
BACKGROUND: I came out not once, but twice when I was younger. I wish I had had a resource that I could have turned to that showed me it was okay to struggle and okay to question all things when it came to my sexuality and identity.
WHO I AM LOOKING FOR:-At least one person that represents each one of these letters: LGBTQILesbianGayBi-sexualTrans* ManTrans* WomanQueerIntersex
Depending on the response, I may include more than one story for each letter, but I want each one to be equally represented.
WHAT I NEED FROM YOU: -If you want to participate, great! Thank you! -I will need no more than a TOTAL of 500 words to answer the questions below, you do NOT need to answer each question. -If you feel very passionate about one question, please feel free to use all 500 words for that one question. -Please discuss your story and what was memorable about it for you. -What would you want you to tell yourself knowing what you know now? -Feel free to go over 500 words if you so choose! -If you do not, that's okay too! -Do you know someone that would want to participate? -Please feel free to send them this form! Any help you can provide me is appreciated!
OTHER THINGS: I will NOT need to use your real name/full name within the book. In fact, all names in my story have been changed to protect the innocent. If that is what is stopping you from participating, please know that I will protect your anonymity.
