RETROSPECT by Hunter T. [Poem]

My mind wanders and then I catch it Dark thoughts perpetuate I set them on fire, and for a moment They burn with fury. My mind ablaze in retrospect Until I scatter the ashes Leaving my heart cold again I’m tranquil but numb Like frozen from waiting too long A light far ahead glimmers Giving me hope once again This cycle won’t persist much longer … Continue reading RETROSPECT by Hunter T.

I’m over ten years into my transition from female to male and I still don’t pass. I have been very androgynous my entire life and due to that I’ve had the experience of being incorrectly gendered as far back as I can remember.

Micah Woods Sings Beautifully About the Quest for Love in “Chasing Boys”

Micah Woods has shifted genres a little bit since his last release and what he has done feels and sounds so right. Woods cleverly combines a throwback pop sound with elements of country-Americana music on his newest single “Chasing Boys.” The song, that normalizes his LGBT-identity, starts off with country style guitars.

Rainbow Walk by Skylar Bauer [Poetry] [LGBTQ]

Rainbow Walk by Skylar Bauer Heart racing, I walk through the woods, Remembering the rainbow walk trick. Bright red berries, bearing falsehoods. Looking for orange now, feeling a lunatic, Trying to steady my breathing. Colors of a sunset described in brick. Rainbow walks are meant to help the heaving of my chest as I contemplate the yellow bees and anxiety. Though far from appeasing, I … Continue reading Rainbow Walk by Skylar Bauer [Poetry] [LGBTQ]

It’s me, confronting my own pride more … Continue reading Singer-Songwriter Kat Hamilton Moves to L.A. & Releases Debut Solo EP “The Grey Area”
