[identity profile]
 Name: Jazzi

Age: 19 and 1/2

Location: Indiana

How do you identify?: I haven't quite figured this out yet.  I am female and closer to femme than to butch.  I am attracted to people who are intelligent, kind, and share my social and political values with little regard to outward appearance.

Interests/hobbies:  I like to knit, write, read (obviously), send obnoxiously full envelopes, record myself reading poems and poetry onto cassette tapes, draw badly, stare at the cute girl in my feminism class, and cuddle with people who are having a bad day.

Favourite books:  Wicked, Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister, and Mirror, Mirror by Gregory Maguire; A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray; Trickster's Choice by Tamora Pierce; Harry Potter by J. K. Rowling; The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood; Possession by A. S. Bayatt; The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova; Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle; Full-Frontal Feminism by Jessica Valenti; Yes Means Yes by Jaclyn Friedman and Jessica Valenti; The Second Sex by Simone de Beauvoir; ... A lot of other things ...

Favourite films:  I haven't seen as many movies as I wish I had.  I love children's movies because I believe that the relationships are so much more believable, the humor is more light-hearted, and because I very rarely leave feeling badly about myself.

Favourite music:  I like music that is light-hearted and upbeat, generally speaking, especially folk.  Again, I am not as well-versed in music as I would like to be.  Some of the bands I listen to frequently include Mumford and Sons, Sunset Rubdown, Iron & Wine, Josh Ritter, Kimya Dawson, The Bird and the Bee, and Andrea Gibson.  (Does spoken word poetry count?  It has lyrics ...)

What would you like to send/receive?: I can knit hats and scarves, I write stories and poems for people, I make awful paintings, I tear things out of magazines, and I can record myself reading stories for you.  I'd like to send tangible letters and gifts, but I would also be okay with e-mail, since it's faster and more convenient for some people.

Who would you like to send and receive mail from?: Anyone who is kind, has an interest in arts and/or politics, and wants to send and receive mail from me, naturally.

What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to?:  Any at all

Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive?: Anything with animal products:  I'm vegan

What would be in your dream letter or package?: Tea bags, lovely stories about someone's life, colorful photographs or paintings, small perfume samples, and genuine affection

Anything else you'd like to add?: I'm very shy at first.  Please don't let that scare you off.

Picture: Yay, belly dancing!

Why not :D

I'm kinda bored, so I figured I'd run through this again :D I'm really not big on letter-writing, since I'm kind of swamped with schoolwork and I'm really bad about sending things out in a timely manner (seriously, the only way we get rent in on time is because we send it in online XD), so I'm mainly just looking for email buddies and/or LJ friends :)

Name: Cyrus (I go by Cy)

Age: 22

Location: Newmarket, NH

How do you identify?: Panromantic demisexual with an aesthetic preference for the male body. Also, pre-transitioned trans dude. I call myself a gay man for the simplicity. Also taken.

I've done this once before and I have been talking to some great people ever since (Z <3). So, why not try it again and see who I come up with! :)

Name: Alexis

Age: 16

Location: Baltimore, MD

How do you identify?: (sexuality/gender) Pansexual Female.

Interests/hobbies: I love psychology and answering/asking questions. I'm a girly-girl, so I love dressing up, eyeshadow, mascara, make up of any kind. I love to bake cupcakes, paint, take pictures, play with hair, laugh, and sing. I won't lie to you, I'm not always nice - I insult people like it's going out of style - but who is always genuinely nice these days? I'm not afraid to tell you what I think, and I like to play the devil's advocate. I write because it's my passion and I strive to learn something new, everyday. Even though I have my mean tendencies, I like to think I have a big heart. There's so much I care about, I have so much love, and I'd like to share it with you.

Favourite books: Uglies, Pretties, Specials, and Extras by Scott Westerfeld. Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov. The Twilight Series (Yes, I am serious. I'm a hopeless romantic). I absolutely ADORE books, so I have tons of favorites that would take me too long to write. I'm always open to suggestions, however. :)

Favourite films: I love little kid movies. Alice In Wonderland (the original. Don't even get me started on the remake) is probably my absolute favorite movie. The Shining, Step Up 1-3, Final Destination 1-4, Save The Last Dance. I don't like: LOTR, Harry Potter, The Breakfast Club, The Goonies, or Forest Gump.

Favourite music: I love classical music (Tchaikovsky <3), The Jonas Brothers, Demi Lovato, Selena Gomez, The Temptations, Gym Class Heroes, Travie McCoy, you name it and I'll tell you if I like them.

What would you like to send/receive?: I'm big on letters and cards (birthday or holiday, or just random cards). But if letters are not your thing, I can do email, too. Pick your poison.

Who would you like to send and receive mail from?: Well, I'm only 16, so keep that in mind. The highest I'd feel comfortable going is about 19.

What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to?: Anyone! International mail is surprisingly cheap (my letter to Italy only cost me 98 cents!) But, once again, if international mail isn't so cheap for you, I have an email address.

Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive?: (eg. "food/candy with nuts"): I'm not big on food in the mail or things that will get me in trouble with the law. Remember, I'm only 16.

What would be in your dream letter or package?: Letters, cards, pictures, cd's, dried flowers, drawings, stories, poems, something bright and colorful, anything you think will get me to know you better.

I'm looking for life long friends. If you have commitment issues, then I'm probably not the girl to talk to. And I am in school, so it might take me a day or two to send the letter back. But don't fear, I will always reply. I can write and read a bit of French (I'm a beginner), but I'd prefer English. Let me know if you're interested! :)

[identity profile]

I'm Zora Hurst, but you can call me Zoe.

I'm nearly sixteen.
I live in Iowa City, Iowa--my mum works at the universit ywhich is famous for writer's workshops and liberalism.

I'm a mystery... Attracted to both genders and I fancy myself a bit of a cross-dresser, though, being a teenage girl, it come off as a bit rock grunge.

I read a lot, but music is my calling. I play the bassoon, the violin, the piano and the string bass. I fence, foil-style... I'm a music whore.
Jonathan Safran Foer is an amazing writer, I've read all of his works, a well as most of Tolkein, Vonnegut, Bierce, Zola and Saki.

I adore Rupert Grint; Driving Lessons is always a favourite, I'm a sucker for Adam Sander and Will Ferrel films--I'm also a superhero junkie, mad about Spiderman and Teen Titans, Batman: The Dark Knight was sinfully deligtful. Inception gave me chills.


I'm willing to send stories, letters, music recommendations and (probably poor, as will be reckless) advice.

Willing to recieve anything from anyone.

I read/write english (of course) a bit of French also-- I'm not fluent but I'm not completely useless.

No pictures unless I ask, I'm not willing to part with mine easily either, so it may come off frigid, but I'm trying to ease the pressure.

Just intoduce yourself, tel me something strange; the color of your socks, how you like your eggs, a pair of shoes  you wold kill for... Anything, really

Warning: I've a horribly religious mum, so if you don't get  response as quick as you'd like, just know I'm finding a way to get around the constant hounding.

Am off to celbrate the greatest of weekends: Labor Day,

Zora Hurst

Name: Luce



How do you identify?:

I take to a fiddle now and then but I'd hardly call it playing. I like hiking, kayaking, tabletop RPGs, some computer games, getting lost in the forest, studying language and assorted other things (helpful and less than-), working at the local library, feeding the neighborhood cats and tending to my tiny garden.

About me:
I read to a fault, I'm one of those people who reads while they're walking or watching something or waiting in line. I love to read fantasy, science fiction, historical fiction, anthropology, instruction manuals or whatever I find laying about. I think baking with the right person can be sexy and adventurous. I can be embarrassingly easy-going because I believe there is a subtle grace to the way that things unfold and I love to see where life takes me. This may all makes me sound very adventurous but in fact I'm pretty passive. I would prefer pomegranate tea and a good book near the window to the outside world any day.

Favorite books:
This question is just too hard!

Favourite films:
I really enjoy low-budget, corny movies - especially thrillers. I really like to watch documentaries, old noir and black and whites.

Favorite music:
I'll listen to almost anything. I love global music. I'm not a big fan of rap or some country-western. Right now I'm really enjoying "gypsy punk", jazz fusion and old southern spirituals.

What would you like to send/receive?:
I'm open to anything. I'd love to share seeds or recipes, puzzles, mix CDs, collages, sketches or knitting. I would really love to make friends with whom I could exchange stories in letter form.

Who would you like to send and receive mail from?:
I'd love to hear from anyone who feels like writing.

What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to?:
Any and all.

Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive?:
I'm pretty open...I would prefer that the outside of the mailing be discreet, as I live in a conservative area and it's not entirely safe to share my identity here.

What would be in your dream letter or package?:
I would love to have a regular pen pal with whom I could exchange riddles. I have a lot of spare time in which I create cryptograms. If this sounds way too geeky for you I completely understand.

Picture (optional):
I'm not completely comfortable with sharing my identity here due to aforementioned conserve small town living.

Anything else you'd like to add?:
I've been watching this community and I think the idea is wonderful. It would be nice to forge friendships with others nearby or far away. It's amazing to think that perhaps by sharing our lives with internet strangers we can all be a little less isolated.

I'm hoping this gets a better reception than last time; I pray I'm not that boring that no one wanted to comment even *cries*

Name: Sara

Age: 27

Location: Akron, OH, USA

How do you identify?: (sexuality/gender) I'm a bisexual female. I'm not sure what I'm attracted to more, but I do like men and women equally. However, I am fiercely loyal to those I'm attached to, so take that as you will.

Interests/hobbies: I'm a part time law student, full time 911 phone operator, ride dressage and probably should've gone pro, but never did due to the fact I don't want riding to be a job instead of being something fun. I love to read, write fanfiction (even though law school has taken away most of my free time for writing). My fandoms include Hellsing, Cowboy Bebop, Star Wars, and Harry Potter. I enjoy cosplaying, but I'm a terrible seamstress lol. I dislike Twilight, and I love vampires that don't sparkle and stories that do not glorify domestic abuse like Stephanie Meyers has made all little girls believe they should expect out of their relationships. Sorry, but love isn't about complete control over one party. I love cats, I have three wonderful companions in Charlie, Sizuka, and Fedde. I'm a solitary wiccan with Catholic tendencies. Basically, I am a contradiction, but a fun one :)

Favourite books: The Harry Potter Series, Percy Jackson series, Things Fall Apart, Joy Luck Club, The Thrawn Trilogy, and Outbound Flight.

Favourite films: Cruel Intentions, The Talented Mr Ripley, Good Will Hunting, Order of the Phoenix.

Favourite music: Metal, Rock, Punk, Screamo, Grunge.... I like rock. Some of my favorite bands are My Chemical Romance, Disturbed, Metallica, Fall Out Boy, Ludo, and Taking Back Sunday. Within Temptation and Lacuna Coil are starting to grow on me, but I still need a bit of time before I can say I absolutely love them.

What would you like to send/receive?: Letters, small gift packages, whatever strikes my fancy, or your fancy, really.

Who would you like to send and receive mail from?: Anyone that wants to chat. I would ask, though, that people be over 18.

What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to?: Any country is fine but those that are overseas will likely receive letters and very small gifts because of shipping costs.

Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive?: (eg. "food/candy with nuts"): Nothing too pervy. I might like it, but I live with my mother while in school (it's cheap and convenient to campus.... lol) so therefore things have to be acceptable in her eyes.

What would be in your dream letter or package?: Surprise me!

Anything else you'd like to add?: I am hoping to connect with like minded people, and I'll be honest; I'd love a relationship. I know, I know, it's needy to post that, but I see it as honesty. Why string people along if your intentions are different?

Picture (optional):
I'm the girl.

And I'm the really tan one in the black cami

Name:  Lisa

Age: 20

Location: New England, USA

How do you identify?: I am really uncomfortable with labels.  I don't feel particularly drawn to any sexuality/gender labels, specifically, but I'm repelled from others.  I love "queer," let's leave it at that.

Interests/hobbies: Procrastinating, reading (specifically experimental genres, magical realism, poetry,) art (modern, specifically dada/surrealist/conceptual), avoiding being creative, making mixed cds/tapes, listening to music and dancing around by myself, live shows, taking baths, lighting candles n a non-neo-pagan way, feminism, gender/queer studies, riot grrrl, countercultures, subcultures, sociology, anthropology, folklore, fairy tales, social politics, gossip, junk food, secrets

Favourite books: My first and most important label, before human, is bookworm.  Some important authors to me are Alice Hoffman, Francesca Lia Block, June Jordan, Charles Bukowski, Daphne Gottlieb, and Edward Albee.  There are always more. 

Favourite films: I am intrigued by Todd Solondz films.  Otherwise, my personal film collection looks like it's owned by a male, gay, art, drug addicted snob.  Take that for what you will.

Favourite music: I will be that douchebag who says that my music transcends boundaries... except it does.  I have interests in all genre, but I am particularly intrigued by anything angry, loud, experimental, or from the first half of the nineties... let's talk blind melon and bikini kill.

What would you like to send/receive?: First I'd like to get to know you online, for a while.  Than I'm open; I'd prefer commitment to long letters.  Mixed cds are always loved.

Who would you like to send and receive mail from?: I'd like to meet people interested in queer politics/gender queer exsistence.  While anyone is welcome, I love radicals.

What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to? Let's stick to America.

Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive?: Not particularly.

What would be in your dream letter or package?: A long, rambling letter from a friend written on interesting paper.  A mixed cd/tape is a must, the more the better.  Zines.  Books.  Artwork.

Anything else you'd like to add?: I feel disconnected from the queer community, and I feel invisible/underrepresented/empty.  Help me fix that!

Name: Amber
Age: 25
Location: Virginia, United States
How do you identify?: This is complicated for me. In my early teen years I identified as bisexual, but I'm no longer really attracted to women. As for gender... I was born female, but I have definitely come to accept I'm FTM. The problem is that I'm married, and my husband is definitely straight. I still love him very much, and so I'm stuck remaining female until my life changes.
Interests/hobbies: Roleplaying and writing. Reading - just about anything. Hot Wheels (the toy cars). I absolutely love animals - I have three miniature pinschers and four cats - though I'm currently fostering a litter of kittens - and a koi pond. Movies. Theater. Music - both playing and listening; I play seven or eight instruments. I'm interested in cooking, though I don't do it much. I love webdesign and coding, as well.
Favorite books: Too many to list. It's probably easier to list favorite authors, really. Anne Rice, Naomi Novik, David Levithan. The Harry Potter series. I love sci fi/fantasy, vampire stories, classics, plays, some romance, historical fiction. I'm not big on westerns. Here's what I've read this year - I've not been reading much lately, sadly.
Favorite films: Star Trek, Stargate, Sherlock Holmes, IronMan, IronMan 2, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, Alice in Wonderland, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, anything with Will Ferrell - especially Stranger then Fiction.
Favorite music: I listen to just about all music, except country. Favorite artists include - Incubus, Live, Metallica, Rammstein, Korn, 311.
What would you like to send/receive?: I don't know. I'm just looking to make some connections with people who know what it's like to be queer. I'd probably prefer to start out things in comments/PMs on LJ. From there we can go to IM, e-mail, handwritten letters, packages, whatever. I've always wanted penpals, but after running into some psychos online, I'm hesitant.
Who would you like to send and receive mail from?: Someone with similar interests and favorites.
What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to?: The US would be cheapest, which is good, but I don't mind mailing internationally.
Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive?: Candy/sweets aren't a great idea, since I'm diabetic, but since I got my insulin pump I indulge every once in a while.
What would be in your dream letter or package?: I haven't given it a lot of thought.
Anything else you'd like to add?: I can't think of anything right now.
Picture: I hate pictures of myself, but if you really want one, I'll give you one.
