“Gay electropop-rock singer Logan Lynn (“Bottom Your Way to the Top”), who recently stopped by to play at San Francisco’s Rock-It Room along his West Coast tour, is now offering up his music for LGBT causes. Buy his new CD I Killed Tomorrow Yesterday, and funds go to a Portland LGBT Center.
‘I’m freshly out of my contract with The Dandy Warhols’ Beat The World Records and have decided to give to charity instead of officially releasing it,’ said Logan in a recent press release. He’s also ‘taking a hiatus from the music industry to work full time for LGBTQ rights. I’m not gonna tour or do any of the bullshit that goes along with releasing records these days for some time to come but I’m really happy with how the record turned out and would love to help raise money for the gays so it would be great if you choose to cover it in whatever capacity.’
100% of the proceeds of Logan’s CD are going to his fundraiser for the Portland Q Center, Oregon’s only LGBT Community center. The only way to get the record is by donating to them directly. Info and instructions are on his website.”
(They also posted the 2007 version of “Feed Me To The Wolves” which I had not watched in ages until today. I hate how much American Apparel we’re all wearing but I was building stores for them at the time and got all that shit for super cheap. Back then who knew anybody was gonna see it anyway??? Not me!!! See for yourselves below. I was 27 years old and it shows.)
My new record “I Killed Tomorrow Yesterday” was produced by Bryan Cecil and self-released as a fundraiser for Q Center on Tuesday, August 31st. You can preview and purchase the record on iTunes by clicking HERE or on the album cover below. 100% of the proceeds from sales go to benefit Portland’s Q Center.

To begin with, my motivation is deeply personal. As an out queer person growing up in the Midwest in the 90′s there were no safe places for me to be myself. To me, that is what the Q Center is. It’s a place where ALL queer people can be themselves openly without the fear of judgment or danger. I recently became involved after some of my friends were gay bashed in Portland during the Rose Festival. If you care to read more about my history leading up to this point and what has been the primary motivator for this you can check out this blog post I wrote just after said bashings happened HERE.
Q Center is at the forefront of not only local change for the LGBTQ community, but statewide and national change. It is the only community center of its type in Oregon. I recently was particularly drawn to Kendall Clawson (the Executive Director of the center) after receiving THIS NOTE in a Q Center email. After I heard that I was like “This lady is doing exactly what I am wanting to do only instead of just being emotional and writing about her feelings (which is what I’ve been doing for the past 10 years) she follows it up with actually CHANGING things for our community at large.” I felt compelled to reach out to her to let her know where I was with wanting to change my everyday life and get involved with something I am passionate about and it all just kinda clicked.
I believe in Kendall’s cause and the work the center does. I’m raising money for them so I can come on board full time as assistant to the Director and office everyman from Sept. 1st – Jan. 1st, then see where we’re at with the whole thing. They need me there NOW, not in 4 months when the fiscal year ends. That is why I am raising this money. I figured I could either sell the record myself and put the money into the center or give people the opportunity to get involved with my next steps themselves, have a tax deduction, and get the new songs all at the same time. I could really use your help making this happen. Please share the following link with friends: http://loganlynnmusic.com/2010/08/savingtheworldonequeeratatime/ and, of course, donate whatever you can. The more money I raise for Q Center before September 1st the more people we can help. Let me know if you have any questions.
