Logan Lynn Producing New Web Series with Portland’s Hippodrome Media to #FightStigma Around Mental and Behavioral Health

Logan Lynn Web Series (2015)

A few months back when I was Lena Dunham and Carrie Brownstein’s guest at their Portland gig for Lena’s book release, I had the pleasure of experiencing the genius of Portland Actress and Comedian JoAnn Schinderle, who opened the show with a short set of stand-up.

I knew immediately that I wanted to work with this talented woman on something, so when it was time to cast the new web series I was developing to help combat stigma and change narratives around mental and behavioral health with Trillium Family Services, JoAnn was the first and only person who came to mind.

In the months since, I have worked closely with Portland’s Hippodrome Media (who also created my “Tramp Stamps and Birthmarks” video in 2013) to develop the web series, and we just finished shooting the first 4 episodes this past week. It has been such a pleasure to bring this dream to life with such a talented cast and crew, and I can’t wait for you all to see it when it premieres in May for Mental Health Awareness Month!

In the meantime, check out some behind-the-scenes photos from the shoot days below:

Keep Oregon Well Awards

Oh, 2014. Good Lord.

Logan Lynn by Adrian Sotomayor 2014

This year. THIS. FUCKING. YEAR.

2014 has been all change, all joy, all sorrow, all music, all betrayal, all anger, all hopefulness, all hopelessness, all healing, all big losses, all big wins, all disillusionment, all unflinching baldness, all standing up for truth, all staring painful realities in the face, all ugly crying, all family, all missing Pomeranian soul mates, all forgiving myself, all not being touched, all disgraced mentors, all loved ones dying, all coming to grips with the inevitable loneliness of rebuilding, all calling out injustice, all having my privacy violated, all watching castles crumble, all dodging the press, all rebuilding something beautiful, all sober, all gloriously televised, all remarkably overlooked, all uncomfortably noticed, all growth, all resilience, all persistence…and now it’s ALL OVER.

Come to me, peace. Come to me, stillness. Come to me, love and please, please come to me, kindness. I’m yours.

Logan Lynn Break Me Down 2014

We spent 6 weeks in the top 10 earlier this year on Colombian pop radio, and I did a bunch of Colombian press and interviews as a result. Now Escena Indie en Colombia has picked my song “Break Me Down” as #2 on their Top 5 Songs of 2014 list.

Thanks to Escena Indie en Colombia for including us on this list, and thank you to everyone who kept us on the radio this year! We are coming for you after the record comes out, Colombia. Stay tuned…

From Escena Indie en Colombia:

#2: Break Me Down – Logan Lynn

“Este año tuve la oportunidad de conocer la propuesta de un artista que lleva haciendo música en el bajo mundo de los Estados Unidos desde hace más de 15 años. Dicha experiencia lo ha llevado a retratar en sus canciones todas esas vivencias que abordan las cuestiones humanas esenciales.”

Friends, I Am Heartbroken About Jian Ghomeshi…

Logan Lynn and Jian Ghomeshi in Portland (2014)

Friends,

I am heartbroken about Jian.

I hate that photos from my stories about him are being used in these awful reports about his hurting people, and as a survivor of sexual violence myself, and a lifelong advocate for the abused, I am embarrassed that I have played a part in bringing this man to your attention over the past couple of years by way of The Huffington Post, Queer Voices, and my own blog and networks.

The truth is, Jian Ghomeshi has been very supportive of me in my career and an outspoken advocate for my community. I have not known him to be anything but a gentle, thoughtful person who I have connected deeply with around human rights issues, music, mental health, identity, and the strangeness of fame. I have looked up to him, but it is clear to me now that my picture of Jian has been incomplete, at best.

The past week has been painful. I have felt sad for Jian, sad for the world, and sad that I seem to have, once again, been drawn in by a man who is not who he seemed to be…but most of all, I am sad for the people Jian has hurt. I know what this means for them, the impact it will have on their lives, how it will affect their families and relationships; and I wish healing and peace for all involved.

I do not believe Jian is connected to the reality of what he has done, but that does not make this any less real. Just because a person doesn’t report abuse to the police, does not mean that abuse did not occur.

It is important that we believe people when they say they have been harmed. This type of violence can be extremely difficult to speak, and even more difficult to live. As of this afternoon, police reports have been filed and an official investigation has begun. This is a good thing.

For those of you who have seen Jian and I together in Portland or in photos, interacting on Twitter, and chatting in interviews, please know that Read the rest of this entry »
