Age: 25

Location: Currently Germany, in a few weeks London

How do you identify?: Female / Lesbian

Interests/hobbies: I like a lot of things and there are only a few things I don't like and if I don't know something, then I get to know it. Mainly, I'm a writer. I write fanfiction and originals. I read a lot of fanfic and books. I'm interested in cultural things like museums and the theatre and movies or musicals.

Favourite books: The Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, The Neverending Story

Favourite films: The Lord of the Rings, MILK, Out at the Wedding

Favourite music: I listen to almost everything I can get my hands on. Exceptions: I don't like Rap or House or Techno.

Who would you like to send and receive mail from?: People from all over the world in general, people from the UK and especially London or Surrey in particular. I'm gonna spend a year there soon and people who know their way around and can give me some advice would be wonderful. That's not a condition, though. If you think we'll get along, drop me a comment.

Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive?: Porny things. I don't think anyone would surprise me with that without reason but ... yes, porny things.

Ok, let's get this going. I had set something up with a would be pen pal several months ago, but she has since abandoned LJ. Sad days. Here's hoping this time goes better.

Name: Machelle

Age: Turned 25 in April

Location: Oklahoma

How do you identify?: (sexuality/gender) I don't see the point in labels, but if I did it would be bisexual

Interests/hobbies: I love to read, write, doodle, watch my favorite old tv shows on dvd *cough*Golden Girls*cough*, and listen to music. I also go through crafty phases every now and then. I can crochet, knit, sew, and my Mom is teaching me to quilt...though we may kill each other before it's all over... I also love taking pictures and scrapbooking. Oh! and movie quotes, my love for movie quotes should probably have it's own bullet point. Tattoos, I have three and have several more planned.

Favourite books: Quite a few classics, but most are from Medieval to Renaissance literature. Anything by Amy Tan. I like pretty much all of Kim Harrison's and Laurell K. Hamilton's stuff. Gone with the Wind and Scarlett. I just bought Full Dark No Stars by Steven King, and the Game of Thrones. I'm in the middle of an amazing biography on Cleopatra by someone Schiff...I think. Love it. Also, I have the Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks next to my laptop. I read just about everything and almost always have at least one book within reaching distance, even if it's just on my phone...Because let's be for real. Smart phones that double as e-readers? Best Thing EVER.

Favourite films: Oh. This is going to be all sort of trouble I can tell. Well, to start out, I love and collect almost any Disney movie from my childhood. My favorite is Beauty & the Beast, I was beside myself when it was re released this year. Little Mermaid, Tarzan, Emperor's New Groove, the Aladdin trilogy, Aristocats, and Anastasia! My non animated movies favorites consist of several trilogies : LOTR, Matrix, the Rush Hours. I also love old school movies. Gidget, any Doris Day movie, Yours Mine and Ours, the one with Lucille Ball and Henry Fonda. White Christmas. Movies with Jerry Lewis and Dean Martin. And who doesn't love a good comedy or romcom? Sister Act. Two Weeks Notice. Last Holiday. The Holiday. Pretty much anything Sandra Bullock or Queen Latifah have done. This is getting ridiculous. Lets just say I love movies and leave it at that. I will quickly say that Supernatural and Golden Girls are my two favorite shows, and I also believe Joss Whedon to be a god among men...'nough said. Oh! And don't forget musicals! Never could! Producers. Wicked. Cats. Rent. those are my favorites.

Favourite music: Who can pick? I listen to just about everything. No really. Lol. I used to qualify that with the statement that I didn't listen to rap, but my bf has decided that as a ginger, and the only white best friend she has ever had that I need some swag lessons...which are failing spectacularly, in case you were curious. So now I own and like a couple cds by Nikki Minaj, Drake, Chris Brown, and some other people that I just can't remember. Country. Pop. Hip Hop. Rap. Trance. Classical. some Techno. Lots of Gregorian Chant. Musicals, I lump this in here because I have listened to more soundtracks than plays I have actually seen live, but I love them all. Fabulous stuff, this music that sings to our souls.

What would you like to send/receive?: Letters. Postcards. Pictures. fun stuff.

Who would you like to send and receive mail from?: Pretty much anyone 19+

What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to?: Oh anywhere would be exciting.

Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive?: (eg. "food/candy with nuts") I opposed to pretty much any food stuff. It tends not to make it to its destinations. I only know this because I sent a few care packages home from England when I spent a semester in the UK, and some of the candy didn't make it home. So, that means someone in Customs on the UK or US side grabbed a snack, bloody thieves. Just sayin'.

What would be in your dream letter or package?: A letter that makes me smile and is full of heart felt words and empty of judgments.

Anything else you'd like to add?: Yup. Can anyone tell me why Youtube doesn't have a repeat button? Seriously. It would make my life sooooo much easier...no lie. Also, I should apologize for the ellipsis in advance...lol.

How do you identify?: (sexuality/gender) I'm a queer black chick. I'm attracted to anything as long as it's human.

Interests/hobbies: Surfing the internets, reading, talking about politics, debating

Favourite books: ANYTHING by Noam Chomsky. I don't really pay attention to titles but I don't read a lot of fiction. As for non fiction anything that pertains to sociology, society, activism and stuffs like that. If anybody can somehow hook me into fiction then go ahead! The only fiction I read or watch is historical fiction. But I like V for Vendetta and Watchmen

Favourite films: School Daze, When the Levees Broke, Malcolm X, Pootie Tang. I don't really have favorites, I watch A LOT of movies.

Favourite music: I don't really have favorite artists, I just listen to music. My music tastes range from pop to classical. I'm open to anything. Some of my fav genres are : Pop, Kpop, Rap/Hip Hop. I can give a few artists I like : Talib Kweli, Britney Spears, Radiohead, GD&TOP, Prince (huge fangirl fro Prince) and Gnarls Barkley

What would you like to send/receive?: I like to make mixtapes, zines, poems, and I can write in Chinese (just a beginner though lol). Also I can do the standard letter, sometimes a good letter can be JUST SUPER COOL. Or if you're good at any crafts then it would be cool to send me something like that.

Who would you like to send and receive mail from?: Someone in the same age range from me 15-18. I want to be pen pals with someone who wants to keep a regular, fun and educative (does that even make sense lol) correspondence. I want someone who's political and passionate but a goofball at the same time. Also if you're good at arts and crafts that would be awesome toooo

What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to?: I would like to stick in the U.S. for mail but anywhere is welcome for email.

Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive?: (eg. "food/candy with nuts") No food unless already discussed in correspondence. Use your common sense I guess. It really just depends on the situation *this was just a ramble*

What would be in your dream letter or package?: My dream package would be in some cute ass stationary like Hello Kitty and with a zine or mixtape. A letter with doodles or maybe a comic someone made would be awesome.

Anything else you'd like to add?: I'm agnostic but would love to hear from people into philosophy and theology. I've honestly been researching a lot about religions in India so I would love to discuss that. I'm EXTREMELY liberal. I'm a pro choice black feminist. I'm OBSESSED with Hello Kitty and fashion. I'm really sensitive and weird. I can crochet. I'm trying to learn the guitar but I'm lazy as hell. I'm also a vegetarian. I hope to meet some awesomesauce folk. Anybody who's into politics (Anarchism, Communism, Socialism things of that nature and societal stuff) should definitely come talk to me :D because I'm really into that stuff and would love to learn more. I'm also a very vulgar and TMI person lol. This post was really off, sowwy <3

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] accio0greatness.livejournal.com

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.

LA ROUX! FLORENCE + THE MACHINE! AQUALUNG! MUTEMATH! THE DOORS! MINUS THE BEAR! QUEEN! TROUBLE OVER TOKYO! MICHAEL RABINOWITZ!

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,

Name: Katherine.

Age:
16

Location:
Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.

How do you identify?:
Bisexual, female.

Interests/Hobbies:
Reading, Doctor Who, activism, traveling, cooking, social studies, Torchwood, Supernatural, House, CSI, foreign cultures, music, horror movies, er… trying to seem more interesting than I am, it seems. I like a lot of things, alright, let's just say that.

Favourite Books:
The Discworld novels, Harry Potter, anything by Stephen King, the classics (especially Oscar Wilde's works), American Gods by Neil Gaiman, Good Omens, Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, The Vampire Chronicles, Sherlock Holmes, T.S. Eliot's Complete Works. Many, many more, but I won't bore you.

Favourite Films:
Rocky Horror Picture Show, El Orphanto, Rattle & Hum, Fight Club, Across the Universe, Sherlock Holmes (2009), Blair Witch Project ('favourite' in that I won't ever, ever watch it again because it scared the hell out of me the first time and possibly made me never go camping again, you understand), Princess Bride, and the problem with these survey type things is that you submit it and afterward, you realize about 20 movies that you like way better than the ones you actually put down.

Favourite Music:
I am an audiophile, and you would be hard-pressed to find music I don't like. The music I love, though, includes U2, classic rock, Adam Lambert, Josh Ritter, Kid Rock, Ben Folds, Elton John, country music, not opera or hardcore rap. I can pretty much carry on a conversation about whatever musician you like, not gonna lie.  

What would you like to send/receive?:
Emails, letters, whatever you like, really. Stuff, too. Like stories, drawings, photos, candy, whatever!

Who would you like to send and receive mail from?:
Anybody! Anyone who thinks they'd like talking to me, or I'd like talking to them, or that thinks we would get along equally well.

What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to?:
English-speaking ones, preferably. I mean, you can absolutely try writing me letters in Swedish or Japanese or Welsh or anything, but you'll be sorely disappointed when your reply comes back and all it is is a bunch of Google-translated gibberish. "Hello, friend of new making! Badly smile had I done when your letter was received by myself. I inhabit land at Canada-land, also I activities fun I find is word-looking at in books, listening to melodic notes through i-Pod, and visiting friends people." I just, I wouldn't recommend it is all I'm saying.  

What would be in your dream letter or package?:
If it's a letter? Words. Maybe arranged in such a way as to make stories, poems or anything. If it's a package? I'd just love you to death for sending me something. I'd probably get all grateful and mushy and stuff.

Anything else you'd like to add?:
I am very sorry this whole thing looks like a essay or some shit. Sometimes I ramble. Also, I'm an agnostic liberal, but shy at the same time. I dislike close-minded people, homophobes, overly pessimistic people, conflict, sports, being embarrassed and onions. Superficial people make me sad. I'm allergic to cats, but dogs make me exceedingly happy. One last thing:
<3 and comment if you want to talk!

Okay all! I am making a Queermail mixtape/mix-cd/letter trade so that we can all make some new friends!

All you got to do is reply to this thread some time this week and say whether you'd like make/receive a mix-TAPE (as in cassette tape) or a mix-CD (as in CD-R).

Next week - I'll aim to leave it up for 7 days, so probably sometime around the 6th July - I will pair everybody up RANDOMLY and post the pairings. Find your partner, PM them, swap addresses and make/send eachother your mixes.

Why not add in a letter? Or decorate the mix artwork? Or send some extra little goodies to introduce yourself?

Rules: 

1) This is a WORLDWIDE trade. If you sign up then please be aware that you might be paired with somebody on the other side of the planet. If this is a problem then please don't sign up - why not find somebody closer to you and then PM them directly and suggest a private trade? I used to organise these trades regularly and pairing people who would only mail to certain countries got too complicated so I'm scrapping it.

2) Please only sign up if you can fulfill your promise. Make sure you can afford postage, have the equipment and ability to make/send your mix, make sure you have a little time to spare next week.

3) Please include a tracklisting. So annoying finding great new music but not knowing what/who it is!

4) Be aware that you could be paired with ANYBODY, wherever in the world, whatever age/gender/sexuality. I will pretty much pair-up people entirely randomly - except will aim to pair tape people with tape people, and CD people with CD people. If you want to trade with somebody in particular, just message them directly! We're all here to make friends! :)

This is just a nice way to make friends, find some new music, receive something nice in the mail. Don't be shy :)

GO GO GO!

Name: Beth (Hi!)

Age: 16



Location: UK

Relationship status: Single Pringle.

How do you identify?: The so-called 'fairer' sex (although the biggest tomboy you've ever met, so maybe even genderqueer)/big fat GAYLORD - I've seen Meet The Fockers recently :P - so yep. Very very gay (I intensely dislike the word 'lesbian' for some reason).



Interests/hobbies: LJ owns my life, as does my iPod; veggiemalarian (vegetarian for any non-goofballs out there); writer; photographer; guitarist; singer; non-stop talker; giggler (I laugh loudly and often); learning new languages; meeting new people *cough, hint hint, cough*; travelling; learing about new cultures (particularly Asian - Singapore, China, Japan, India, Vietnam... you get the idea); wannabe interpreter; World Cup enthusiast; Manchester City supporter; David Bowie maniac; Dave Days (I love his videos, he cracks me up); comic-reader (and occasionally drawer/writer); Freddie Mercury fangirl. I LOVE HIM.



Favourite books: I read whatever I can get my hands on. I even read the dictionary when I was seven, for wont of something better to do. I like the His Dark Materials trilogy, the Artemis Fowl books, absolutely anything by Neil Gaiman (although his collaboration with Charles Vess - Stardust - and Neverwhere are particular favourites!), Chocolat, Five Quarters of the Orange and Blackberry Wine by Joanne Harris, Paul Stewart & Chris Riddell's Edge Chronicles/Muddle Earth, Lord Of The Rings, Harry Potter, SPUD, the Georgia Nicolson series (Angus, Thongs & Full-Frontal Snogging, Knocked Out By My Nunga-Nungas etc.) by Louise Rennison, Ballet Shoes, Chinese Cinderella, Lirael, Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde, The Flowers of Evil by Charles Baudelaire, Rubyfruit Jungle by Rita Mae Brown... I could go on and on.



Favourite films: Phantom of the Opera, Sweeney Todd (I'm a total sucker for a good musical), Pirates of the Caribbean, Austin Powers, The Boat That RockedLord of the Rings, Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, Breakfast On Pluto, Stardust, In Bruges, Love Actually (and a sucker for a good rom-com. Love Actually is my all-time favourite movie, I think)...

 That's all I can think of for now.

Favourite music: Classic rock/rock'n'roll. The Beatles, The Kinks, AC/DC, GN'R, The Steve Miller Band, The Sensational Alex Harvey Band, The Beatles, The Who, The Eagles, Pink Floyd, The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, David Bowie, Dire Straits, Queen (I'm obsessed with Queen.), Lynyrd Skynyrd, Def Leppard (I used to get them and Led Zeppelin mixed up, IDK why.), Van Halen, Bob Dylan, Elvis...

And then soundtracks. Loooove soundtracks.

What would you like to send/receive?: Letters, online and/or snail-mail. It feels like forever since I wrote an actual hand-written letter properly that wasn't for an exam, though, so I'd love to write some of those. My handwriting, though, is very... archaic, really, so you might have trouble reading it. :/

Who would you like to receive letters from?: Anybody who can put up with me long enough! Anybody and everybody, pretty much!

What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to?: No Man Utd supporters Just joking, [livejournal.com profile] einsteinflygirl :P My parents aren't particularly generous with pocket money, it has to be said... But anyone, anywhere! As long as I can afford postage (and I don't mind saving up, but the letter'll be late if I do) I will write as often as I can!

Anything you would particularly NOT like to receive?: Apart from the obvious (I'm underage, so... No porn or anything sexual, please), food/candy with peanuts, dismembered hands and the like. Not that anyone here would send me a dismembered hand. Or I hope not. Those are my only requests! ^__^

What would be in your dream letter or package?: Music will always be a winner!; funny quotes; photographs of funny street names/signs/tree stump shapes etc.; jokes; newspaper clippings or articles; comics; drawings; writings in other langauges... You name it. 

Anything else you want to add?: This could take a while. I have a tendency to drift off topic and just ramble about the most random things; I say everything that comes into my head; I love Monty Python; I will often spasmodically switch between English and whatever language takes my fancy; I'm very sarcastic sometimes (in Britain, sarcastic/deadpan humour is the best and never fails to amuse)... Um... Oh yeah, there's quite a lot of fanfic on my journal. Just a warning.
That and:

I love Batman. ^^

Picture: Sure thing!

(Curly-haired and mucking around with my camera)
(Wet-haired and smiling geekily)
(My favourite jumper and another dorky smile)
(Goofing about with my phone and being stupid in general)
Ooops, my face hasn't changed... but I've had about half a foot of hair chopped off since then :P It's up around my cheekbones now.
