EastSiders TV Nominated for 8 Daytime Emmy Awards!

OMG EastSiders was just nominated for 8 DAYTIME EMMY AWARDS, including Digital Drama Series, Writing, Supporting Actor, Guest Performer, Costume Design, Makeup and Casting!

I’m so proud that I got to be part of this amazing show this season. Thank you all for watching and downloading the songs from the soundtrack — And if you haven’t already, go stream season 4 on Netflix right now!!! 🏆

EastSiders Featuring Logan Lynn Chosen as Critic’s Pick in Today’s New York Times!

Congrats to Kit Williamson, John Halbach, and my entire Netflix EastSiders TV family on being a Critic’s Pick in today’s New York Times Sunday Arts section!

If you haven’t already, go watch this show right now. I had the absolute pleasure of being much of the soundtrack you hear throughout Season 4, and am so proud to be a part of this big gay moment in time.

Long live #EastSiders! ❤️🏳️‍🌈

Thank You, Recording Academy!

Thanks to everyone who voted for My Movie Star in the 3 categories it was up for at the GRAMMYs!

We (predictably) lost the Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album nomination to Barbra Streisand, John Legend, Elvis Costello, Michael Bublé, and Andrea Bocelli, but holy hell it was fun to see our names on that ballot.

I also cannot stress enough how much I loved working with (and then #Grammy campaigning with!!!!) my childhood pop hero Tiffany. Her beautiful rendition of Big City Now from My Movie Star ultimately lost the Best Pop Solo Performance nom to Beyoncé, Billie Eilish, Ariana Grande, Lizzo and Taylor Swift, but I’m #TeamTiff FOREVER.

Working across genres on My Movie Star was really exciting, and while Scott Simpson’s cover of Underground was knocked out of the Best Country Solo Performance race by Willie Nelson, Blake Shelton, Ashley McBryde, Tyler Childers, and Tanya Tucker in round 2, infiltrating the Country ballot was a trip.

Congrats, everybody! I’ll see you at the big show in LA on January 26th. 🤘🏆

Logan Lynn Opens Up About Online Abuse and Harassment in People Magazine This Week

“It’s been my experience that nothing triggers this type of toxic masculinity culture more than a gay man who isn’t afraid,” Lynn says, “and I can’t think of anything I am less afraid of than a bunch of fragile dudes who can’t deal with my existence.”

Read the full story in People Magazine HERE, or click on the screenshot below.

…and here’s some backstory:

Back when all of this super intense homophobic trolling started up again a few months ago, it was worse than ever before. Since my time on TV back in the early days of Logo I’ve been a target of this disturbing trash, but I’ve always found ways of using it as a motivator, and it has fueled my queer activism.

A lot of it has turned scarier than usual since the last election when I put out that Satanic puppet video where I put Donald Trump in jail (where he belongs), but this past January I finally made a deal with myself (and my mom) that I was just never going to look at what poison strangers are saying about me ever again — not even for the sake of comedy or advocacy — and I haven’t.

Anyone who follows me has watched me spend years taking screenshots and mocking the truly endless hate I get as a punchline, but I’m fucking tired and homophobia has completely lost its charm. Even with a team of people working with me on managing it all, the bigotry is still painful, and the content of the trolling is so twisted and personally triggering, it can be really hard to find a punchline.

Whether you are a 24 year old comic in Portland attempting to make a name for yourself by publicly dragging mine through the mud, or you don’t like someone famous that I’m connected to, or you are an Evangelical murderer who wants to burn my house down because you hate gay people, or you are one of the 26,000 MAGA dudes who listen to the Opie and Anthony Radio show and insist on creating and distributing violent memes about me, or you are just mad because you think my songs suck, I really, truly have stopped caring. I literally CAN’T care, and haven’t cared for some time.

This is what wellness looks like in 2019: Blocking your own name on the internet. Read the rest of this entry »

Feature Story on Logan Lynn, Online Harassment and Anti-LGBT Bullying in Gay Star News

Gay Star News picked up this story about Reddit’s irresponsible corporate practices and everything that’s been happening with me by way of their shitty, abuse-supporting platform lately.

Logan Lynn’s “My Movie Star” Featured and Reviewed in March 2019 Issue of OutSmart Magazine

So fun to be featured in OutSmart Magazine alongside John Grant, Troye Sivan, Calum Scott, morgxn, Corey TuT and others in Houston’s “Queers For Your Ears” issue, out now!

❤️🧡💛💚💙💜

Click HERE to read it online, but here’s my favorite part:

From OutSmart Magazine (March 2019 Issue)

“Nine albums into his recording career, Logan Lynn’s My Movie Star is easily his most ambitious project to date. The oversized package consists of the 10-song album on the first disc and a second disc of remixes, as well as other artists covering a few songs from My Movie Star. With the exception of the title cut, the songs, co-produced by Lynn and Jay Mohr (yes, that Jay Mohr!), were co-written by Lynn and piano sensation Glasys. In other words, this album is a new and unexpected direction for Lynn, who is perhaps best known for his electronic music stylings. Among the cover versions on the second disc, the rendition of “Big City Now” by Tiffany (yes, that Tiffany!), is a must.”

Leaving Neverland, Wherever You Are

Lots of TV talking heads screaming about how shocked they are that the adults in HBO’s “Leaving Neverland” documentary all seem to have just gone along with Michael Jackson’s predation; but sexual predators are experts at grooming entire families, and it happens slowly, over time.

This was certainly the case with what happened during my own youth. These people can sense when space exists between a child and their parents, perhaps created from previous abuse, neglect, some other type of trauma, or a need that isn’t being met at home, and they shapeshift to fill that empty space, meeting the need — not just for the victim in their sights, but for all of the grown-ups around that child. It’s easy to judge looking in from the outside, but make no mistake: These parents and families are victims of the monster, too.

When I was 16 I had a much older teacher start showing me special attention and eventually openly seduce me during a summer art program for teens that I was attending at the Pacific Northwest College of Art, and literally nobody gave a shit. Grown-ups offered me rides to and from this man’s house, where he regularly fed me and my underage friends drugs and alcohol, and had sex with me. None of this happened in the shadows. I was openly sleeping over at this teacher’s house, in his bed, showering in his master bathroom. Nothing was a secret; not to his friends, roommates, family, and coworkers — and not to mine.

My parents are proud. (I asked) 🎥🏆

Logan Lynn Cancels 2019 “My Movie Star” Tour Ahead of March 1st Announcement – Full Statement Here

Those of you who have been following my #VanLife adventure since my professional pivot into the wild last year may have been scratching your head about why I seem to have not really gone on any sort of adventure at all.

Some of you have reached out to see what happened to our fall tour plans, or why I haven’t come to visit, even recreationally. Some of you just think I’m being a lazy rich kid who can’t be bothered (and have told me so). But those of you who know me in real life have picked up on the fact that not everything has gone as planned out here, expressing concern that I seem to be parked and isolating in remote corners of the Pacific NW.

The reality is, #VanLife is fucked.

This narrative doesn’t match a lot of my photo shoots and public posts because I’ve remained committed to finding beauty in nature and making the best of it, while holding onto the dream I first set out to realize and working to see it all through. It’s not miserable because I have somehow changed my mind about wanting to tour. I haven’t. I very much still want to promote this record and sing these special songs for (and with) all of you. And it’s not because I don’t like the small space or the sometimes-rugged complications of full-timing in an RV. I’m game for all of that anticipated (and un-anticipated) adventure stuff. That is not what’s happening here, either. And oh my god it’s not because I’m lazy or rich. Ugh. I wish! Unfortunately, neither of those things are true anymore (though they definitely have been before, so I get the perception). And it’s not even that I’m depressed or sketched out about the constant online bullying and death threats, which would normally be a major contender after so much time out here alone and so many thousands of homophobic trolls piling on with the release of this new record.

Sadly, what’s actually happening is much more heartbreaking (and potentially sinister).

I will start by officially announcing that we have to cancel our 2019 tour plans that were included in all of the “My Movie Star” album press over the past year. We were supposed to announce the bands and cities March 1st for shows beginning in spring, but instead, it’s canceled. All of it.  I’ve been dodging questions and playing along, but no more.
