Hometown love today from The Portland Mercury, who included my new video “Tramp Stamps and Birthmarks” in this week’s “Video Vriday!” weekly wrap-up! Check it out HERE or keep reading below the video:
From The Portland Mercury: (11/1/2013)
Logan Lynn released his new Halloween-y video this week; ‘Tramps Stamps and Birthmarks’ is a mysterious psychosexual clip made by Hippodrome Films. Lynn recorded the dark-tinged dance track with Spencer Lee Carroll (LackLustre), and Lynn says, “The horror of the video is meant to be a metaphor for the horrors of being trapped in our individual histories.”
Thank you to the End Hits blog over at The Portland Mercury for featuring my new video “Everything You Touch Turns To Gold” in this week’s video round-up!
From End Hits “Video Vriday”: 8/16/2013
“Here’s Logan Lynn and Rowan Wren in “Everything You Touch Turns to Gold.” Wren directed the video for this track, which appears on Lynn’s recent Tramp Stamps and Birthmarks album. Lynn says the mellower, more acoustic nature of this touching track—as opposed to his upbeat electro-dance pop—points the way towards his next album. The video also features the work of Portland metal sculpture artist Christopher Truax.”

I wrote a couple of the articles in this year’s Annual Portland Mercury Queer Guide. One is called “Your Nuptials Are Illegal: Five Above-the-Law Ways to Protect Your Partnership in (and from) Oregon” and the other is called “Location Is Everything: The Best Places to Get Same-Sex Married“. Pick it up on stands tomorrow in Portland, or read the transcript(s) below…

“Location Is Everything: The Best Places to Get Same-Sex Married” (in Portland)
It could be argued that where one gets married is as important as whom one wishes to marry—particularly when it comes to same-sex weddings.
