I chatted with the queers over at Accidental Bear this week. They interviewed me in advance of my new single “Turn Me Out”, which comes out this Tuesday (June 5th). We talked about love, being a whore, activism, loss, and a whole heaping mess of other stuff. Click HERE to check it out or you can read the transcript below.
From Accidental Bear (5/31/2012):
“Q & A With Lovely Ginger Logan Lynn Back From Two Year Hiatus: New Single “Turn Me Out” Out June 5th!”
Accidental Bear: Logan Lynn, musician and activist. What other things can you add to that list?
Logan Lynn: I generally just say Musician, Writer, and LGBT Activist when pairing it down.
A B: We are totally excited about your new single! Tell us a little about it?
Logan: It’s called “Turn Me Out” and is basically about me being a whore for the man I love. I worked with David Appaloosa from Portland pop group The Hugs on the musical part and Gino Mari produced it. We recorded it at The Country Club studios in Portland.

I got involved after a couple of my friends were gay bashed in 2010 and ended up giving the proceeds of “I Killed Tomorrow Yesterday”, my last studio album, to them as a result. In the years since I’ve worked on a variety of projects there. I think of myself as a radical queer, and this is what that looks like at the moment.
A B: We have noticed that you also write for the Huffington Post. How is that working out for you?
Logan: Great! It’s amazing to have a platform like Read the rest of this entry »
