"Kicked Out" call for submissions

Edited by: Sassafras Lowrey*
Publisher: Homofactus Press
Deadline: March 1, 2008

Kicked Out is an anthology, which chronicles the experiences of former queer youth and current queer youth who were forced to leave home as minors because of their sexuality and/or gender identity. Kicked Out tells our collective stories of survival, weaving together descriptions of abuse, and homelessness with poignant accounts of the ways in which the queer community offered sanctuary, and the power and importance of creating our own chosen families etc. Kicked Out offers advice and wisdom to the queer youth of today from former queer youth who have survived. Additionally, it provides the opportunity for readers to get a glimpse into the world of those queer youth who as a result of circumstance have had to leave home, while simultaneously shattering the stereotypes of who queer youth are, and what they have the potential to become.

Hello :]

Hello, everyone. I'm a new member, and decided to introduce myself.

My name is Kaley, and I am 15 going on 16 (August 11). I've always felt strongly against ageism, I guess being a high school journalism student does that to you. Especially living in such a conservative area. *gags.* I'm an 11th grade vegetarian, and a liberal living in a conservative community. Fun, right? I'm extremely open and opinionated, which can be either a good or a bad thing (mostly good, in my opinion). Well.. I guess that sums me up. :D

A little something to get the community more active

Youth Rights Icontest!

If there are any icon-makers in the community, I challenge you to use your creative skills to create an icon for the community, and for youth rights supporters in general. The winner's icon will be used as the community's official icons. It is up to you if you want others to use your icons outside the community or Livejournal in general. The icons can be of people known to support youth rights, inspiring quotations, combinations of those, or anything else you can think of that would have to do with youth rights.

I look forward to seeing your contributions!

Community revival

Hi, all of you! I know that this community's been a bit quiet lately, but I am working on changing that. If you would like to post somewhere that is fairly active and is full of youth-rights supporters, I'd recommend that you go to the National Youth Rights Association's forums. kletta already is a member of those forums, as is wishenough. I'm a moderator there, and my user name is Fabuluke, so if you join, make sure to say 'hi'!
