All of you who follow me know that I am passionate about mental health — particularly around destigmatizing issues of trauma and addiction.
For the past 4.5 years I have been doing LGBTQ advocacy and communications work with Q Center in Portland, and I am pleased to announce that I have accepted a position as Communications Director for Trillium Family Services, Oregon’s largest provider of mental & behavioral healthcare for children and families. Click HERE for the full scoop.
My mental health advocacy journey continues, and I hope you will join me in supporting both of these amazing organizations as I embark on this new adventure with you all! Thanks to everyone who has been posting sweet things and flooding my inbox with messages since the announcement.
I love you, too!
Huge thanks to the band FUN. for having me as the guest on their Ally Coalition “Contact” show this week!
Listen to the episode HERE or press play below.
I adore what this band does with their fame for LGBTQ rights, creating safe space for queer and trans youth to connect with local resources at all of their shows, donating money to sexual & gender minority orgs, etc. If all popular artists took a lesson from FUN. the world would be a much better place.
Thanks again guys!!!
As you all know, my wild band boys and I will be flying to Austin, Texas for Stargayzer Festival this September to perform alongside all kinds of amazing folks. This week all 3 days of headliners were announced. Here’s that scoop:
As you can see, we’re playing on Sunday the 14th, but we will be at the festival all 3 days. Get tickets and passes HERE.
This week, both the Austin Chronicle and Austin 360 covered the festival’s location change to downtown Austin (instead of a Ranch with no shade) as well as announcing said headliners. Click on the logos below to check out the articles:
I came across the incredible work of an artist named Ian O’Phelan earlier this week and, in turn, reached out to him to see if he would be interested in working on the artwork for our upcoming single. While we are still chatting about whether that will come to fruition, Ian surprised me with the illustration above (where I am serving some serious Delta Burke realness) and the rad portrait below.
So cool, right? I love this guy!!! Check out more of Ian O’Phelan’s work HERE.
