Etch This Shit On My Tombstone.

This quote in People Magazine is the best thing I have ever said. 🌈💀

“It’s been my experience that nothing triggers this type of toxic masculinity culture more than a gay man who isn’t afraid, 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.”

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.”

…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.

Feature Story and New Interview with Logan Lynn in November Issue of Starry Constellation Magazine

Thanks to Starry Constellation Magazine for interviewing me for their current issue. We talked about music, Hollywood, recovery, men and so much more. Check out the online version HERE, or just keep reading below for the full transcript.

From Starry Constellation Magazine: (11/9/18)

Q) How would you describe your sound?

A) This answer has really changed a lot over the years. When I started out in the late 90’s I was all about this ‘Putting the Disco back into Discomfort’ tagline, which was evident in both my music and behavior at the time. The electronic period that followed was also a time in my career where I was signed to a major label and several indies, so I had other people describing my sound a lot, trying to help “shape” my sound, all of that bullshit. Ever since breaking out on my own again I’ve felt really free to do whatever the hell I want, work with whoever I choose, and follow creative whims that have taken me down a bunch of different sonic paths that I honestly never would have been allowed to go down if I were still making records for other people. So, people know me as this electronic emotional dance pop dude because that’s what my records were from 1998-2012. My last album was just full-on college rock — an homage to all of the bands and songs that actually shaped me — and that led to this very stripped down, intimate situation I find myself in currently. Jesus, that was a long way of saying “piano pop.” [laughs] Read the rest of this entry »

The Release Week Reviews Are In…

My new record My Movie Star has been out for exactly one week today and I’m so touched by the response so far.

Releasing an album with no beats (and ultimately nothing to hide my vocals/lyrics/feelings behind — something I’ve been doing to my songs for exactly 20 years) has been equal parts terrifying and gratifying.

It took me months to feel comfortable with anyone hearing me this way, and there have been times during the process (and this week) where I have felt that same discomfort…but by the time we go on tour in April, I plan to be able to sing these songs in front of all of you without bursting into tears. Or maybe I’ll just stand there on stage and cry into the microphone like I used to. Time will tell!

Listen and buy My Movie Star on Bandcamp, iTunes , Amazon, Google Play, CD Baby and everywhere else music is streamed and sold.

Check out a bit of what people have been saying below!
