Last month: LGBT History, this month International women’s Month – that’s a whole 1/6th of the year dedicated to me!
Seriously though, we are still looking for more women from the lesbian, bi and trans communities to get involved in Outcome. I am determined that the book will be properly representative or the people around me. Tom has a deadline of 1st April to get the balance right (conveniently at the end of International Women’s Month) I’ve been hijacking my own book launch events for The Dowry Blade to go on about Outcome, and I think I’ve sent an email or a Facebook or Twitter hint to every single one of my lesbian friends suggesting immortality is a click of the shutter away, but if I missed someone I’m sorry! Stand up with your sisters… Contact me!
This isn’t about celebrity, or some weird media construct of beauty, okay? It’s about who we really are, and it’s important! Every one of us is unique and amazing and has a story to tell. A number of people have said – but I don’t have a picture of myself as a child. Initially that stalled us, but we’ve thought it through – If there is a story behind that, tell it, we still want you involved.
The Crowd fund has only 2 days to run, expiring around 2pm this Thursday, and we are still getting a steady drip of pledges through. Feel free to help out! Pre-order a copy of the book, invite yourself to the launch in October, or get yourself a badge or a set of postcards, every little helps and is appreciated.
Here are just a few of the magnificent lesbians who are already involved.
