How do you identify: Oh so many answers... one of which is lesbian.
Interests/Hobbies: Writing, playing piano, hiking, movies, spending time with friends

I am looking for a pen pal interested in old fashioned snail mail. We can discuss anything from the far left to the far right and everything in between. I grew up going to church and continued growing my faith through college. While still actively serving in music ministry I came out as a lesbian. I continued to attend church though my membership was technically revoked. I eventually stopped dating altogether because I couldn't reconcile my faith with my feelings. That was about 14 years ago. Over the past year I've come to believe I can no longer deny that I am both a lesbian and a Christian. Granted, all this is just one aspect of my Craxy Life (aka crazy life). Some of my other labels include introvert, adult ADD, goofy, socially awkward in large crowds, and deep thinker... oh, I also have Swyer's Syndrome which you've probably never heard of.

If you are interested in a pen pal, send an email to: mharper at hgellc dot com
We can decide from there if we are interested in sending snail mail and exchange addresses. Your location in the world is not important as I am happy to send mail anywhere.

Hi all

I’m looking for some penpals for my partner, snail and / or email.
We are fairly introvert but social so don’t have many other friends and most the friends we have are straight.
We are a married female couple.
The reason I’m looking for pen-pals
Because my partner has been through many struggles in life, and I feel they’d benefit from someone that doesn’t know us personally in which she can confide and ask for advice and hopefully make some new friends along the way.

A bit about her:
She is an Asian lady (Indian) and struggles with the fact her family, friends and community has turned their back to her sexuality, this is a very heart-breaking situation for her that she bottles up.
She is in her late 30s and a survivor, having faced problem after problem in her life.

We own pets and like animals a lot, though she didn’t really have pets growing up but now owns them with me.

Preferred pen-pal
Preferably females of the LGBT community, possibly gay men.
Any ages but over 25s preferred.
Anywhere around the world.
If you are also Indian it’s a plus due to the things you can relate to, I’m non Asian and sometimes it’s a barrier in certain areas, but really any ethnicity.

I hope to hear from someone, somewhere.

Thanks for your time

Woo!

Anything else you'd like to add?: I'm in therapy and on medication for ADHD, depression, and anxiety. Make sure to let me know if talking about these things bother you so I will know to leave them out of discussions. =D

[identity profile] alyssaryanne.livejournal.com

Name: Alyssa

Age: 21

Location: New Hampshire

How do you identify?: Female/Lesbian

Relationship: I’ve been in a relationship with my wonderful girlfriend for nearly three years now, so I should note that I am looking for good friends and great conversation – nothing romantic!!

Interests/hobbies: Writing poetry, photography, film, art, reading, sleeping, eating, musing, watching, listening, and anything that opens, confuses, fills or frightens my mind.

Favorite books: Though my heart lies with poetry, I do love Frankenstein, The Bell Jar, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, 1984, The Things They Carried, The God of Small Things, Mercury Under My Tongue, The Catcher in the Rye, and most everything by Sylvia Plath, Anne Sexton, Charles Bukowski, Jonathan Safran Foer, David Sedaris, Miranda July and more. Anything that makes me feel (again), really.

Favorite shows: I could waste the day away watching the Food Network, or any cooking show(s) in general. I can’t deny that I love dramas, such as Grey’s Anatomy, and I do love the following for multiple reasons: Work of Art, The Amazing Race, Face Off, Project Runway, So You Think You Can Dance, Modern Family, and old gems like The L Word (did it really have to leave)?

Favourite music: I go crazy for music, but tend to find myself rather conservative in what I like; I love singer/songwriters and indie/folk rock. A few of my favorites: Regina Spektor, Bon Iver, Imogen Heap, Sufjan Stevens, Beirut, Ingrid Michaelson, Eisley, Iron & Wine, City and Colour, Bright Eyes, Mumford and Sons, Florence and the Machine, Fionna Apple, Fionn Regan, Vampire Weekend, etc.

What would you like to send/receive?: Letters, pictures, creative writing, musings, music/movie/books/anything recommendations, mixes, recipes, secrets, etc... I would love snail mail, but e-mail, texts, messages or the like work just fine.


Who would you like to send and receive mail from?: I'm open to anyone, but would especially love others involved in the LGBTQ community, preferably not over 30, and if you are a female and lesbian, it’s certainly a plus, but absolutely not a deal breaker.

What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to: I only speak English, so primarily somewhere English speaking…mail rates are expensive, so within the USA would be great, but if you don’t mind connecting via email or other internet means, international is fine too!

What would be in your dream letter or package?: Anything and everything…dreams, hopes, secrets, happiness, sadness, pictures, artwork, poetry, music; a letter that acts as a window to your life.

Anything else you'd like to add?: I love. A lot. If you don’t really consider yourself someone who is hoping to establish a wonderful and loving connection, I may not be your girl!!

[identity profile] hahns-girl.livejournal.com

Name: Christy

Age: 21

Location: Scotland

How do you identify?: I’m not big on labels, but if I had to apply one I would probably consider myself a lesbian woman but I have had sexual contact with guys in the past.  Still, I am primarily attracted to other women.

About me: What to say?  I am currently enjoying the rather long summer between my third and fourth year of university.  I study law at Edinburgh, and have a bit of a love hate relationship, i.e. when it’s stuff I enjoy, I love it, when it comes to referencing essays, I hate it.  I’m generally a calm person and enjoy staying in just as much as I do going out.  I’ve never been the most confident person I know, but I do try not to be too shy.  I love animals, especially my cats, and I take waay too many pictures of them.  I enjoy going out for drinks or something to eat, especially since apart from baking cakes and making desserts, I suck in the kitchen.  I love the friends I have, but am always happy to have more.  My friends would probably describe me as a little mad, loyal and funny, which all things considered isn’t too bad! 

Interests/hobbies: Writing, reading, watching TV, going out for random excursions, going for drinks. 

Favorite books/authors: Dean Koontz, Philippa Gregory, Tess Gerritsen, Kathy Reichs, Oscar Wilde, Ian Rankin, Scott Lynch, many of the classics...I’ll pretty much read anything that takes my fancy

Favourite Music:  I’ll listen to almost anything, from rock to pop, country to classical.  I play violin so I guess I have a bit of a weak spot for a gorgeous string melody.

Favorite movies/TV shows: Doctor Who, Grey's Anatomy, Rizzoli and Isles, Law and Order SVU, The Good Wife, ER, Harry’s Law, Prime Suspect, Hot in Cleveland – pretty much any courtroom/cop/medical drama, but then I also love a good chick flick (as predictable as they can be) or a comedy.

What would you like to send/receive?: Anything really.  I do have to confess, I have a bit of a love for snail mail with nice stationary and stuff but I'm up for e-mail too and would love to send postcards occasionally or little trinkets, mixed cds, handmade stuff, doodles etc. 

Who would you like to send and receive mail from?: Anyone, so long as they're open minded.  Someone who likes to chat about all the random little things that make them smile and the things that interest them.

What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to?: Anywhere! But I should point out that I only speak English.

Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive?: Not that I can think of – just nothing too weird, I suppose. 

What would be in your dream letter or package?:  Something to make me smile, whether that’s a long letter ranting about some random little thing that bugging you, telling about something you found that reminds you of old times, or just what was going through your head when you last walked through the park, or sat in a coffee shop because it was raining outside and watched the world go by.  Maybe a few pictures, some little doodles or a trinket of some sort?

Anything else you'd like to add?:  “No need to hurry. No need to sparkle. No need to be anybody but oneself.” (Virginia Woolf, A Room of One’s Own)

Favourite music: '80's heavy metal, Hawaiian

What would you like to send/receive?: nice, chatty SNAIL MAIL letters - no e-mail, IM, LJ, FB, etc. pals!

What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to?: any

Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive?:
(eg. "food/candy with nuts") not really; while I don't mind swapping things, I'm not rich so I'm mainly interested in writing letters and maybe swapping small things like fb's (friendship books) and postcards and once in a while small souvenirs or something (I'm always looking for more shot glasses and will be happy to send one or some other souvenir in return, whether we're pals or not), but the main thing is the letters so swapping is not a requirement

What would be in your dream letter or package?: well, other than a package full of money, since I collect them, shot glasses, but like I said, sending stuff is not what I'm after, it's the letters and the quality of the letters as I'm looking for friendships ONLY, not someone to give me stuff

Anything else you'd like to add?:
just looking for some great LGBTQ (especially lesbian) pen pals who like to write nice, long, chatty snail (postal) mail letters and are looking for long-term friendship ONLY! :-) Tell me about yourself (I won't reply otherwise) and we can exchange addresses

For this study, we are looking for women (trans-community included)  18 years of age or older, who self-identify as lesbian, bisexual, queer, or questioning (LBQ).  The purpose of this study is to learn about gender presentation and substance use in LBQ women.

You can complete a brief, anonymous 25-minute survey by going to www.lbqresearch.wordpress.com
 
This study had been approved by the St. John’s University IRB.  Thank you for your time.

What would be in your dream letter or package?: A really long letter, postcards from where you live, maybe a mix-CD would be fab. 

Anything else you'd like to add?: I left school this year to study independent certification courses and I'm working part-time so I finally have spare time to get back to writing to penpals (No more exams, ekekekeke). I am so excited, so drop me a comment if you'd like for us to write :}

What would you like to send/receive?: Definitely snail mail :)

Who would you like to send and receive mail from?:
Male/female/dinosaur/whatever between the ages of 20-26.

What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to?:
I would like to stay within the US for now. (Poor college kid here, heh)

Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive?:
(eg. “food/candy with nuts”) Dead things. So. Not. Cool. Illegal stuff, things that would make me or you wanna throw up.

What would be in your dream letter or package?:
You can send me whatever you'd like except things from the "things I would NOT like to receive" question. I'm not picky, but anything cute/quirky/keepsakes/mixed cds/ books/postcards are always winners. And letters are just awesome.

Anything else you’d like to add?:
Yeah, I'm looking for someone who is open-minded, awesome, has similar interests (or totally different ones), someone who likes to keep in touch and not just do this for a one time thing, one who wants to get to know me more, share inside jokes/stories, someone who would like to exchange little gifts, someone fun who doesn't always have to send a letter, it can be a postcard or a picture, someone who can get creative and making the whole penpal experience even more fun than it is. Someone like you :)

This is me :)
