Logan Lynn Cover Story and Interview in July Issue of HIM Magazine

Logan Lynn in HIM Magazine - July 2014 Issue

I’m one of the cover stories in the July issue of HIM Magazine, which just came out yesterday. We talk about everything from music and love, to growing up in a non-affirming Christian church, to surviving the violence of my youth and the near-fatal addiction (and triumph over said addiction) which followed.

“From Preacher’s Kid to Pop Artist: An Interview with Gay Musician Logan Lynn”
By Dominique Robbins

Logan Lynn is an American singer, songwriter, and producer. His music pushes the boundaries of what we call “pop” and it challenges us to look inside ourselves and find that person within. His latest album “Tramp Stamps and Birthmarks” give us a little glimpse of who Logan is as an artist and as a human being. With songs like “Turn Me Out” which focuses on his sexual side and even his cover of “Nobody Knows the Trouble I’ve Seen” which gives us a glimpse of his singing background growing up in church, it is safe to say that Logan is well rounded and well brought up.

Thanks to Ned Lannamann and the kids at The Portland Mercury’s End Hits music blog for including my new video “Radio Silent” in this week’s Video Vriday music video wrap-up. It’s only been out for 3 days and already 7,000 of you have watched it!

From End Hits: (6/13/14)
“Just in time for Pride weekend, here’s Logan Lynn’s latest video, for his tune “Radio Silent” from Tramp Stamps and Birthmarks. Lynn (who, full disclosure, is also a Mercury contributor) shot this with filmmaker Runn Shayo over the course of a summer tour last year with fellow queer artists Big Dipper, Conquistador, and others, and the video features clips from shows across the country and snapshots from life on the road.”

Ben posted this photo on his Twitter last night and I woke to literally thousands of new followers — mostly queer men who are in love with Ben (and, apparently, my beard).

Cute, right?

Oregon Wins Marriage Equality!

Marriage Equality in Oregon (Photo by The Oregonian - May 19th 2014)

Now that marriage is won in Oregon, I am really excited for the LGBTQ community (and our allies) to get back to the still very pressing work of making schools safer, ending workplace discrimination, bringing cultural competency to systems which oppress us, building bridges with communities of faith who oppose us, pushing trans rights to the forefront of our agenda, and making sure our growing senior population is honored and celebrated, having paved the way for all of these modern victories so many years ago.

Celebrate tonight, friends — because tomorrow the work continues.
