I’d prefer gay/bisexual/queer women, to be quite honest. But anyone who’s interested is fine, too :)

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.

 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!

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.

Name: Amanda Traci Nicole Stevens

Age:
22

Location:
Albany or Long Island, New York

How do you identify?:
(sexuality/gender) Lesbian leaning towards pansexual all wrapped with the added confusion of being a trans female who identifies as gendqueer. If you were able to make sense of all that, please help me figure out the labyrinth. I would greatly appreciate it.

Interests/hobbies:
Hmm. This could take awhile and I am trying to do this in a way that doesn’t make me seem boring. Well, first and foremost I am writer and most of my hobbies float around that and being a nerd. So, I spend a lot of time maintaining my blogs (although my LJ has fallen to the wayside), writing poetry, or working on my memoir. The rest of time is occupied with hanging out with friends, playing Magic the Gathering, or playing games on Steam. I am a huge nerd, so comics and video games and anime and manga are all aces in my book.

Favourite books:
The Perks of Being a Wallflower, A Clockwork Orange, The Alcoholic, The Watchmen, Transmetropolitan, Bi Any Other Name, My Gender Workbook, Worst, and way too many other things to announce. Its mainly a huge mixture of manga, comics, graphic novels, gender studies, and whatever sparks my interest.

Favourite films:
This will be the extremely short list otherwise this would be extremely long to read. Clerks, Mallrats, Red Dawn, Fame(the original), Half Baked, The Matrix, Fight Club, Hedwig and the Angry Inch, But I’m a Cheerleader, Camp

Favourite music:
System of a Down, Bayside, Common, Daft Punk, Asian Kung Fu Generation, Rip Slyme, Nine Inch Nails, Monkey Magick, Yoshida Brothers, Gorillaz, Handsome Boy Modeling School, Streetlight Manifesto, Big D and the Kids Table.. Ok so this could go on forever and I don’t think you’d get what I like. I listen to everything from punk rock to j pop. It all just depends on my mood. So if you like something I will probably will also.

What would you like to send/receive?: 
As far sending goes I have no real preference. Just ask and I will try to accommodate. The same goes for receiving. There is nothing I would mind getting. I am a fairly creative person so the more creative the better. But don’t feel pressured

Who would you like to send and receive mail from?:
To be completely honest, anyone. I mean, I am a social butterfly, so I love just meeting and getting to know all people.

What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to?: 
This is the only time I am going to sound selfish. I would love to get mail from anywhere in the world, but my funds are limited. So, I will try to work anywhere but I can’t guarantee it will be speedy.

Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive?:
(eg. "food/candy with nuts")

What would be in your dream letter or package?: 
Um, well anything super creative. Otherwise, send me your dream letter or package. That will probably make me the happiest. No lie.

Anything else you'd like to add?:
UM. That I can think of. Just have fun, I know I will.

My favorite artists include Kristen Chenowitz, Melissa Etheridge, Storm Large, Jewel, The Corrs, Sting, Lily Allen, Up Dharma Down, Lorena McKennit, Miley Cyrus (just the music, people), Taylor Swift, Massive Attack, Jennifer Terran, and Sarah McLachlan.

What would you like to send/receive?: Snail mail, postcards, cards, occasional packages, bookmarks, mail clippings, photos, used bus tickets, used tickets to whatever with a story attached, anything that tells me what that person’s day was like, what their life is like. Pretend love letters are nice, too.


Who would you like to send mail to and receive mail from?: While I’m pretty open to receiving mail from anyone who feels that they’d like to share of themselves and get to know someone new, I’d love to find Queer crafting people or Queer foodies who would also like to exchange mail. Or pet lovers. Or people interested in Filipino food and culture and would like to exchange information about their own.

I'm also open to serving as a writing partner for those who would like to just write love letters to the character in their head.


What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to?: I’m interested in mail from anywhere but my own country – I’ve a group here too, and am looking to expand my horizons. However, those who live far away, like, the Netherlands, for example, will have to be a bit patient with me. I’m not exactly loaded and it might be a few weeks between letters.

Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive?: The following will ensure that you never receive a reply from me: any paraphernalia with gore or excrement (yes, someone once sent me a piece they scribbled on with blood), animal or human body parts, or religious paraphernalia in the interest of converting me.

What would be in your dream letter or package?: Something that shows me something about what you believe in, where you live, your culture, your thoughts. I also love anything handmade.

Anything else you'd like to add?: I’m pretty easygoing, and I’m really curious about other people, but I’m pretty shy and slow to disclose things, so maybe it would be nice if you would ask questions in the first few letters. I’d also like to exchange emails first before we start snail mailing.

I've been told I'm quite sensual, and have no problem with someone who would like to send adult-themed letters (I'm sorry if this isn't allowed, mods?), but it would be nice if we establish that first from friendly, get-to-know you emails.

Hope to hear from you, potential pen pal. Please leave an email address, or send me a PM, and I'll get right back to you. :)

Name: Karen, but you can also call me Kaz or Kazzy.

Age: 22

Location: I live in Newark, NY. I attend college in Houghton, NY.

How do you identify?: I suppose I would identify myself as a Lesbian..still trying to work that out. I find certain guys handsome, but being in a relationship with a guy isn't appealing to me now.

Interests/hobbies: Hanging out/watching movies with friends, animals (especially cats, dogs, wolves, horses, and foxes), baking, making people smile, reading, walks, rain, sunsets, a little photography, watching thunderstorms, playing pokemon, taking naps, staying up too late, my kitties, my Betta fish, and I have a slight obsession with Harry Potter. ^_^;

Favourite books: Harry Potter, Pride & Prejudice, The Sight by David Clement-Davies, Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers, and I'm going to begin reading Eragon soon. I have a couple more books I want to read before the summer's over. I keep having Twilight suggested to me, but no thank you. My loyalty is to Harry Potter. XD

Favorite TV shows: I don't usually watch too much TV. My favorite show is Whose Line is it Anyway?, but I also like to watch MythBusters and Man v. Food.

Favourite films: How to Train Your Dragon (I have a Betta named Toothless that I bought the same day I saw the movie :D), The Princess and the Frog, Harry Potter (the books are soooo much better, though), Lord of the Rings, Pride & Prejudice (both the 1995 and 2005 version), Save the Last Dance, Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron, Music and Lyrics, Serenity...and more.

Favourite music: For the past oh..4 or so years, I've listened mainly to Christian music. Like Skillet, This Beautiful Republic, Wavorly, and Fireflight. But I also enjoy Tegan & Sara, Taylor Swift, Evanescence, and Daughtry. I'm totally open to suggestions. :)

What would you like to send/receive?: Letters, pictures, and drawings if you draw and feel like sharing. Emails are okay at first. Packages are fine too.

Who would you like to send and receive mail from?: I would especially like to send/receive mail from bisexual or lesbian females.

What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to?: It doesn't matter that much..but I only know English.

Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive?: Anything questionable or inappropriate.

What would be in your dream letter or package?: A cute stuffed animal, a few pictures, and a letter that makes me smile. :)

Anything else you'd like to add?: I'm Christian, but am open-minded. I've only recently (as in the past month), come to accept that I like girls. I've been with girls in the past, but when I became Christian, I basically suppressed it because I was told it was "wrong". But I'm not going to lie about who I am anymore, nor do I think it's wrong. Needless to say, I have not told most of my Christian friends. I already lost one of my best friends when I told her, and she won't be the only one when other people find out. So, I'm really looking for friends (or something more, to be honest) I can talk to and that will accept me. I hope some of you are interested..^_^;

Picture (optional):

This is me with one of my kitties, Bobo. I love him so much. :)

Interests/hobbies: Fandom (huge fangirl here), reading (books and fan fiction), travel, theatre (I've seen Wicked four times and on a recent trip to NYC spent every night at the theatre), shopping, watching movies and tv shows, listening to music, and food (cooking it and eating it).

Favourite books: To Kill a Mockingbird, Number the Stars, Diary of Anne Frank, Too Deep for Tears, Between Mist and Midnight, The Harry Potter series, Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants series, Little House series, John Grishman novels, and Danielle Steel novels.

Favourite TV shows: Some current and former favorites: Southland, Chuck, The Closer, Drop Dead Diva, Army Wives, The Good Wife, NCIS, Criminal Minds, Medium, Bones, Dead Like Me, Alias, Cold Case, Mercy, Psych, FlashForward, Modern Family, Pushing Daisies, and The West Wing.

Favourite music: I love country and most Top 40 songs and have a strong affinity for the music of the 1950s/60s. It isn't so much about the artist but about the song; I'm a fan of songs and if I find an artist with a lot of songs I like then that's awesome. Love Trisha Yearwood, Faith Hill, Tim McGraw, Pink, Frank Sinatra, The Temptations, The Supremes, and some Bob Dylan.

What would you like to send/receive?: I have no clue, guess I'd have to think about it.

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

Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive?: (eg. "food/candy with nuts") No adult material or anything illegal.

What would be in your dream letter or package?: I just love mail (of any kind) but there is something special about snail mail.

Anything else you'd like to add?: I'm not a fan of Twilight. I was born and raised in Southern California in a Republican family who has no clue what to do with me. My major is American Studies but I have no clue what I want to do once I graduate. I love music, movies, and books. If I'm not reading or watching tv chances are I'm on the computer.

Picture (optional): Maybe later.

Name:  Tekla

Age: 19

Location: Northern Virginia, USA

How do you identify?: Bisexual, female.

Interests/hobbies: I love music, cooking, gardening, art, dance, video games, theatre, politics, languages, old books, reading, poetry, fandom, taking care of kids. I want to bring back letter-writing!

Favourite books: So, so many. It is alarming how much I read but it looks like there are lots of other totally awesome bookworms around here. Authors include but are not limited to: Ray Bradbury, Robert Frost, Pablo Neruda, Philip Larkin, Emma Donoghue, C.S. Lewis, Patricia A. McKillip, and Garth Nix.

Favourite films: French films, especially Avenue Montaigne, and old movies- anything with Cary Grant or Humphrey Bogart. Slightly newer  and lighter classics like The Princess Bride  and The Labyrinth. Retold fairy tales like Ever After and Hook. Animated movies. Anything that makes me laugh or think- hopefully both.

Favourite music: Indie rock, electronic, classical, Broadway, jazz, old-school go-go and funk and big-band swing. Ben Kweller, Owl City, Emily White, Starryville, M.I.A. and lots more. I sing and play a few instruments pretty well- mostly guitar, cornet, and trumpet.

What would you like to send/receive?: Anything! Letters, postcards, art, swapping books or stories or poetry. I love to make and send intricate and pretty postcards and decorated letters.

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

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

Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive?: I still live with my parents and they are often the ones who go get the mail, so nothing that would particularly shock them unless it's inside an envelope or otherwise craftily hidden.

What would be in your dream letter or package?: Art or a poem or a book. Drawings. A postcard from an interesting place. Photographs. Candy. A story about yourself. A kitten...where feasible.

Anything else you'd like to add?: I just learned to blow bubbles in gum about a year ago, and I was very proud of myself, but I still can't whistle. I really dig dancing and going barefoot and lying around in the sun and taking long walks and exploring weird places and talking to people and making friends and going to museums. When asked to describe me, four out of five of my friends said "funky". (disclaimer: all statistics may or may not be inflated). And I seriously do love to write letters, so if you write me then I would love to send you some cool stuff.

Picture (optional): My tech-fu is failing at the moment, but yours for the asking!

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!
