Hey, thanks, Ziggy!

Yes, if people are interested, please submit! I know that it says that the deadline was yesterday, but I'll take submissions for the next couple days as I put together what I've received. It's been really interesting so far to see the diverse things that people have to say.

Megin, thanks for sending Q's picture. Ziggy, did you submit something? I'm always curious about how people find out about it...

OH wow, now I feel AWKWARD.

But, uh, you're welcome?

Yeah, I submitted a picture. My name is Andrew, if that helps? Tranny boys represent, or something less cliche.

Um, I found out from my friend avi who heard about it from our mutual friend rhoz who reads labels are for jars.

Winter breaks was incredibly boring, so we just read every queer blog we could find.

No, don't feel awkward, and thanks so much for submitting!

What's funny is that I had worked out in my head an entirely different route for how you might have found about it. (My best friend's boyfriend who posts to various trans sites...)

Whoa, small world...

I learned early on that the queer population is large. The queer population involved in both activism-type stuff, trans issues, and parenting? Not quite so big.

This partially explains how I once ended up watching psuedo-porn with my boss at a large theatre in harvard square.

Either way, yes, small world.

Wow, I wish I saw this earlier, but I'll definitely check back to see the results. I can very much relate to the backstory to the project. That happened to us ALL THE TIME when dd was an infant (including the added comments from my mother), and I am in total agreement with the blog post.

Hey Bjorker, if you still want to submit something, please go ahead. I'm still putting together all the submissions, and would love to have something from you if you'd like to send it. Otherwise, I'll hopefully post the results soon!
