Name: Katherine

Age: 22

Location: USA.

How do you identify?: (sexuality/gender) Lesbianish genderqueer

Interests/hobbies: I love to travel. I do a lot of “unconventional” things (like living out of my car, working often, mostly “unstable” jobs...and nothing illegal, in case those quotations look shady) so I can afford to do so. I haven’t considered myself a gamer since the 360/Wii/PS3 came out, but I do love video games. Reading is mandatory! I usually carry at least one book with me everywhere. In my purse right now: Shadow’s Edge by Brent Weeks, and A Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin, and A Walk in the Woods by Bill Bryson. Writing is sort of hit/miss nowadays. Cats, also. They’re the best :)

Favourite books: Anything with words in it. Pictures are nice but optional.

Favourite films: Horror movies are the best! So are documentaries. Anime.

Favourite music: There are things I listen to out of every genre. I usually have a few bands that I obsess over at any given time, though they constantly change and/or repeat. Currently bouncing around my head are La Dispute, Rabbit Junk, Ludo, Rise Against, and Patent Pending.

[I really suck at picking favorites. I hate doing it; “favorites” always change with my mood.]

What would you like to send/receive?: Email? I don’t really like my handwriting enough to send written stuff, but at the same time I’ve always wanted a reason to use a stationary set. So basically I’m up for anything.

Who would you like to send and receive mail from?: YOU.

What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to?: Everywhere. Please. I speak, read, and write Spanish, but just barely. I would love to practice though :]

Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive?: (eg. “food/candy with nuts”) [insert serial killer joke here]

What would be in your dream letter or package?: A book or a mix tape/CD.

Anything else you’d like to add?: To be honest, I’m probably going to be horrible at this. I’m very boring and uninteresting and my friends usually keep me around for occasional quips and mild amusement, and mostly for listening. But I travel a bunch if you’re interested in hearing about that, or collect postcards like I do. :D

Name: Alice, legally - a thousand other things, informally. Most often, lately, it's been spaceman or simply E [for Eric, if it matters].

Age: Twenty.

Location: United States. New Jersey, to be specific.

How do you identify?: This will be a mouthful - homoromantic asexual genderqueer. I am a girl who prefers male pronouns [I am also partial to being referred to as 'dude' and 'bro'], but I'm not and never will be FTM. I like girls. That's about it.

Interests/hobbies: Writing, editing, drawing, roleplaying, playing w0w sometimes, studying astronomy - I work at a planetarium. I'm also partial to psychology and sociology, and languages; I'm currently learning Japanese. With editing, I'm the editor-in-chief of my college's student newspaper.

Favourite books: Anything by Poppy Z. Brite, 'The Picture of Dorian Gray' [Wilde], 'After Dark,' 'The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle' [Murakami]; there is a tonne more that I cannot remember for the life of me right now. Uh.. the current book that I'm re-reading is 'The Way of Shadows,' by Brent Weeks. I have a hard time putting it down when I need to.

Favourite films: Dr. Horrible's Sing-A-Long Blog, How to Train Your Dragon, Breakfast on Pluto, The Royal Tenenbaums, Watching the Detectives, The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, Perfume: The Story of a Murderer, Johns, But I'm a Cheerleader!, Mysterious Skin, Let The Right One In.

Favourite music: Oh, god. Basically - Radiohead, Andrew Bird, deadman, Merry, The Decemberists, Rodrigo y Gabriela, The Mars Volta, deadmau5, Caviar, Paganini, Blockhead, and Gorillaz are some of my favourites. I also love Flight of the Conchords. However, the list goes on for ages and ages.. I'll listen to just about anything. I have a very eclectic library.

What would you like to send/receive?: Snail mail, e-mail, anything. Handwritten letters make me the happiest, however.

Who would you like to send and receive mail from?: Everyone!

What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to?: Everywhere! Bear in mind that my primary language is English, and while I'm going to be in Japanese III in the fall, I am nowhere near fluent enough to have confidence in my letter-writing skills. If anyone wants to help me, though.. :'D

Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive?: Uhh.. y'know, illegal stuff, dead things, etc. The usual. I'm allergic to coconut, in case we wind up sending each other care packages.

What would be in your dream letter or package?: Long letters, drawings, mix CDs, little trinkets, uhh.. candy?? idk, man. Rainbows and giraffes and awesome things.

Anything else you'd like to add?: Stuff and things. I'm painfully awkward. It's nothing against you, if I'm shy for a long time. I really, really like giraffes. I also really like owls and crows. I adore This American Life. I'm interested in BDSM and kind-of-sort-of looking for a Dom. I am very good at doing what I'm told. I don't really like anime, but Neon Genesis Evangelion is one of my most favourite things in this universe. I have the worst sleeping habits ever. I can be pedantic and a bit of a jerk. My boss is my best friend. Elliot Smith makes me cry.

Name: V
Age: 23
Location: Finland

Zodiac Sign:
Sun: Gemini
Rising: Cancer
Moon: Aquarius
Rabbit in Chinese astrology.

How do you identify?:
A gentleman. Androgyne, very much in to male aesthetics anyway. Born female but never really felt like one (on the other hand how should a female feel like, then? I don't know). Like to dress in old-fashioned men's clothing. I guess I'm something in between. I have reached the state of mind where I just feel like a unique entity without any labels whatsoever. Mostly drawn to men and manly/androgyne women, but I don't think genders matter that much - I love everyone beautiful and inspiring. I'm generally not very interested in sex.

Interests/hobbies:
Travelling, hiking, solitude, silence, steam engines, film cameras, classic cars, seaweed, mysticism, found objects, tea-drinking, random activism; Swimming in the lake, making firewood, learning new things, combing through fleamarkets and antique fairs; All sorts of things. I'm a bookbinder and an exceptionally lousy painter. I wish I had more energy to paint, I still have dozens of unfinished boards from 2007 or 2008. Sometimes I just can't get myself together. Drawing, painting, arts and crafts are all part of my everyday life. Things I really need to learn: Welding, woodworking, rare languages, how to use a chainsaw.

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.

Name: (legal in one month's time) Katerick Alixan. But you can call me Alix

Age: 24

Location: Southern California

How do you identify?: basically? A gay man in a chick body. or, if you're into labels, genderqueer transmasculine pansexual, but that is just such a mouthful. and I'm taken :3

Interests/hobbies: Writing, Reading, torturing fictional characters... But anyway, I have a lot of interests, but I also don'tget to delve into some of them as often as I'd like. I am a TOTAL language geek, and I currently am almost trilingual (english, spanish, German), but I'd like to learn about 10 more, including Finnish and Lithuanian. Yeah. I know. I'm crazy. I also love psychology and poking around inside what makes the mind tick, because crazy characters make for interesting characters. I love music, both my parents are opera singers and my dad sings on movie soundtracks, so music is always an important thing. I like a lot of computer stuff and video games as well. Oh and Roleplaying. I roleplay online, via IM, in 1 on 1 situations, I'm also up for email RPing, and if you live near me, D&D is fine too :D

Favourite books: Oh dear jesus. where to begin. I love books that are strange. I confess that since becoming a full time student on the quarter system, I have had very little time to actually READ anything, and I'm in the middle of about six books. But I really like fantasy novels, like the Night Watch series by Sergei Lukyanenko, and I'm also a fan of Warren Ellis, James Patterson, Dean Koontz, etc. I know there's a scad of books that I NEED to read, such as anything by Gaiman and Pratchett, but I just haven't yet, please don't kill me lol.

Favourite films: My mom used to be a film studies teacher, so um. almost anything. Except for really stupid movies like Jackass or movies that look to be entirely about fart jokes. My favorite genres are fantasy, psychological thriller, drama, and action movies. I fucking love action movies, especially stupid ones that are just there for the sake of LET'S LOOK AT EXPLOSIONS.

Favourite music: I prefer foreign music to American music, and my favorite genres are rock, metal, industrial and "other" since I have some strange shit in my ipod. My favorite band is a German band called OOMPH! who are listed as Rammstein's inspirations. I also like VNV Nation, Nine Inch Nails, Nirvana, Van Canto(a capella metal, how can you NOT like that), Nightwish, Sonata Arctica, Icon of Coil, Letzte Instanz, Kaizer's Orchestra.... and of course I've got a soft spot for the stuff I listened to when I was growing up like Eve 6, Crazytown, *NSYNC, old No Doubt, etc. I also have a bit of guilty pleasures, like Banghra music, and Limp Bizkit, and old seventies German pop music, or those old dance hits from the 90s that were played around the 8th grade dance.

What would you like to send/receive?: Mostly emails or IMs, I have no time to write and will frequently forget that I have mail I need to send.

Who would you like to send and receive mail from?: pretty much anyone? I really like to talk to other people who are somewhere around the same area as me in the gender spectrum, just because I haven't found many people to talk to about it, but outside of that? just people who share my interests.

What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to?: anywhere. If it's somewhere that English isn't the main language, I'd like to learn others, but right now German would probably be the best foreign language to send me. Or Finnish if you can translate it in the email because damn y'all's language is hard xD

Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive?: angryness, bad spam, trolling etc.

What would be in your dream letter or package?: I'd just like to make some new friends, if I can do that? I'd be happy.

Anything else you'd like to add?: mmm.... I won't be online that often, but I'll always try to respond within a day or two to your emails!

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.
