7. All I want for my birthday is for everyone who reads this to give $3 to Country Queers!
Today is a day of celebration in my world! It’s West Virginia Day! (The day we seceded from Virginia in 1863 in a sneaky & illegal move which was approved by President Lincoln in an attempt to gain more soldiers for the Union Army). Somehow, I was blessed to share my birthday with the great state. Today I turn 33! .
And so, I’m asking you to please donate $3 or $33 to Country Queers today (if you are able) to support this ongoing, volunteer-run, community based, multi-media oral history project. I’m trying to raise $3,000 by July 1, 2018 to help make the oral histories gathered so far accessible to country queers everywhere. I’ve had the true honor of interviewing 60 incredible country queers in 15 states since 2013. Aside from $7,000 raised in 2014 that funded a month long, 7,000 mile, 30 interview-gathering trip – this project has been scraped together in free time and on spare change.
If everyone following this page gave $1 we’d have reached our goal plus! If 100 of you give $3 we’ll have reached our goal! Please give if you can/as you can!

P.S. I picked this birthday bouquet for myself cause working on #selflove & also #singlelife. But, I really seriously want to know who’s gonna start the dating app for #countryqueers ?
