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:

From Loud and Proud Entertainment: (December 2014/January 2015 issue)

I’ll admit, I was new to the artist Logan Lynn. I had only heard a few of his songs before I was doing research and e-mailing interview questions. I began learning new things about him throughout the process and soon found out he is not like most artists. He is also a champion in the never ending fight for equality.

Logan is willing to ask himself those hard questions and look at important topics that we should all be aware of. His efforts to build up the LGBTQ community are astounding. Logan founded the Q Center’s Qblog. As stated on the website, Qblog serves as a resource and online platform “…to broaden the positive perception of LGBTQ people.” Logan has even donated an entire year of earnings from his album I Killed Tomorrow Yesterday to benefit the Q Center in Portland, Oregon.

What started as a simple music interview turned into something inspiring—an open and honest conversation that hits on several important topics that are too often pushed under the rug and affect more than just our own community. For example, we delve into mental health issues—a topic that is riddled with Read the rest of this entry »

Update: New Logan Lynn Record Coming 2015

Logan Lynn in Brooklyn (2014)

Hey darlings,

My band boys and I have been on a break post-summer tour and I’ve just been writing songs for my new record and throwing myself into mental & behavioral healthcare advocacy full-time. It’s been great to have some much-needed down time, but we are back in the studio next month (January) to dive headfirst into finishing the album.

I hope you all have a killer holiday season. If you are buying gifts for your people, click HERE to stuff your stockings with me and my nonsense. I do love when you give me away…

I’ll see you after the new year, babies!

xoxo

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 »
