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.

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!!!
My new video premiered this morning on the Vortex Music Magazine site. It is an homage to my family and community, and is about surviving together in the face of grief and loss.
In light of the past few years of losing some of our own, it has been clear that our love — and their love for us — continues to hold my family together, long after they have gone.
Thank you to my uncle David for capturing tons of old family movies decades ago. It is such a special thing to have living images of my grandparents, of my beloved family (Pat, Scott, Steve, Debby, Colleen, Mildred, Loy, Teresa, Gene and others) to build this story around.
…and for those of you in my community who have ever felt oppressed by the world, I hope you are also enveloped by hope, and that love is winning in your life.

In advance of a highly publicized festival showcase in Austin, Texas alongside Austra, Trust, Big Freedia and Mykki Blanco at Stargayzer Festival on Sunday, September 14th, Portland indie pop musician (and Dandy Warhols protégé) Logan Lynn is releasing the first two songs from his upcoming new record next week on 9.9.2014. The full album is slated for release in 2015.
A departure from the electronic sound Lynn has built his career around, “We Will Overcome” finds Logan Lynn and his band in a more organic space, pulling on influences that range from Ziggy Stardust-era Bowie to Fun and Elliott Smith.
Lynn debuted this new sound last year when he released a critically-acclaimed cover of Miley Cyrus’ “We Can’t Stop”, which New York Magazine called “Dreamy” and “Guitar-heavy” and The Huffington Post described as “warm” and “bolder than the original”. Since the release of “We Can’t Stop” Read the rest of this entry »
