BIG THANKS TO EVERYBODY WHO GAVE TO MY FUNDRAISER FOR PORTLAND’S Q CENTER! THE RESULTS ARE IN…

It’s been about 2 months since I broke my world apart and set off to build a new one. My advice to all of you is this: If you’re miserable, leave. If you don’t like the boat you’re in, poke holes in it & sink it to the bottom. The rest of the world awaits you.

Thanks so much for all of your generosity in giving to the Q Center by way of sales from my new record as well as non-musical donations made on my behalf over the past 6 weeks! It has been great to accomplish what I set out to do and I would not have been able to were it not for you!

I have seen all of your names on the list as the donations and album orders have come in and there is just no way you will ever know how much it has meant to me. I am deeply touched by your support on this new journey and am, quite frankly, in love with each and every one of your sweet faces!!!

This has been the greatest gift. Y’all really came through on this one, so…thank you. You’re a bunch of superheroes.

SPECIAL THANKS TO RED CAP GARAGE FOR DONATING ALL THE PROCEEDS FROM THEIR DOOR LAST NIGHT TO THE Q CENTER!

Last night everyone who came through the door at Red Cap Garage did their part to help keep the doors to the Portland Q Center open while they had their drinks and danced the night away. The lovely folks at Red Cap do a recurring event called “Red Cap Cares” where a charity of their choice gets 100% of the proceeds from the door. Last night the charity was my fundraiser for the Q Center and I honestly couldn’t feel more appreciative if I tried. It’s so nice to know that “Red Cap Cares” isn’t just a slogan to get people in the door. They actually really DO care.

Thanks so much, guys! I’ve said it elsewhere and I’ll say it again here: What you do for the community is really something. I’m really touched and Love Love LOVE Red Cap Garage.

So: Everybody go there, eat a burger, have some drinks…and know that you’re supporting a business that, in turn, is actually working to make a difference for good in the city around you.

LONG VERSION:

Hi again, everybody! It’s been a little over a week since I announced my plans to step away from the stage for the time being and the reaction from all of you has been really incredible. Thanks so much for all the emails and messages in the days since. It’s been reassuring to be able to so clearly see that I have not been wrong about all of you this whole time…that you totally ARE as wonderful as I like to think about you all being…that sometimes strangers care about you more than people you’ve known for years. Thank you for hearing where I’m at enough to wish me well on my journey. I’ve collected so much love from you through the past decade of my being in your ears. I’m not sure what I’ve done to deserve it but I feel so lucky to be connected with this sea of like-minded, sensitive, caring individuals all scattered across the globe…

So WHAT’S NEXT??? I think I may have figured that part out. You know how I was saying I needed to do something that matters for a little while and use my powers for good instead of just to be a famous singing douchebag who complains about how horrible his life is or whatever? Well, I actually meant it and have been exploring what that looks like in the immediate future. I’ve recently been involved with Portland’s Q Center (Oregon’s ONLY LGBTQ Community Center) and have been feeling personally drawn to that place for months. Ever since I stepped foot in the door and met Kendall Clawson (the center’s Executive Director) it’s been clear that she is on a mission to make something really big happen for not just the various queer communities in Oregon but the nation as well. Big things are happening out of that place and I want to be on the frontline of the change. I honestly don’t give a shit about pop music at the moment but I do care passionately about human rights and making things safe for the gay community at large, the community I Read the rest of this entry »

I’M GETTING A LOT OF “WHY Q CENTER? WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING? WHY AM I DONATING?” EMAILS SO HERE’S THE ANSWER…

In response to the post on my site about my going to work full time for Q Center and how the only way to get my new record is by donating directly to the center I have been getting tons of emails asking not only what the hell I’m doing but why the hell I’m doing it. I responded to one such wall post on my Facebook music page and figured it made enough sense to post for the rest of you. Hopefully this explains it. If not, please feel free to hit me up directly. I’d love to chat with you further about Q Center and my involvement there anytime.

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: https://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.

SALEM PRIDE WEEKEND WRAP-UP: LOGAN LYNN & THE GENTRY GET WILD AT FLIPSIDE BAR ON 8/6 + PLAY A SECRET SHOW AT THE FESTIVAL IN CASCADE GATEWAY PARK ON 8/7!

Well, that was fun. The Gentry boys and I just got home from a wild weekend in Salem, Oregon where we played TWO shows in less than 24 hours for 2010 Capitol City Pride! First we played their official opening party at Flipside Nightclub on Friday (August 6th) and ended up dancing the night away and filming scenes for my upcoming “Bleed Him Out” music video with me undoing my shirt and making sex face in the stripper cage. It was epic. For those of you who made it out, thanks! It was nice to see you.

The next morning I was finally able to announce that we were going to be the surprise performers at the Capitol City Pride Festival in Cascade Gateway Park later that afternoon (having kept it a secret since MAY when I was booked!) We got there and it was bustling with partying queers and their friends. We set up our electronics in the middle of the park and had one of the best shows of our whole Summer tour! As it turns out, I love secrets!!!

Thanks so much to everybody who took such great care of us this weekend and to all of you who came out to the shows! We filmed both of them so I’ll be posting clips sometime soon. You can check out hundreds of pix from our adventure on Myspace HERE or on Facebook HERE. I ended up having the best time ever this weekend and got to talk about Q Center on the loud mic for a bit at both shows as well so that was cool. Go Salem gays! See you again soon…
