A project of Pittsburgh Lesbian Correspondents, this Q&A explores life in Western Pennsylvania for the LGBTQ community. We ask you to share your full name, but it will be kept confidential if you prefer. We ask allies to not participate so we can stay focused on the LGBTQ community directly. Responses may be published on Pittsburgh Lesbian Correspondents blog and/or in a zine format. You can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions. IF YOU ARE COMFORTABLE, we'd love to include a photograph. But that's completely optional. You can read the current Q&A's along with more information about the project at http://www.pghlesbian.com/amplify
To participate, you should be 18+, identify as LGBTQ (or some variant of that identity) and have ties to Western Pennsylvania. Ties can be anything from attended college here to spent every summer with a relative to living FT in one of our 26 counties.
AMPLIFY launched in 2015 and will continue through 2017.
If you leave an answer blank, we'll insert "No response" in the final post.
