I am beginning a new blog that deals with individuals and communities that identify around some aspect of Sex, Gender or Body. I have pasted a copy below of a post I just published on my blog.
I hope that it is not in bad form to announce it here on an existing community blog. Since this blog focuses on politics, and my new one will only deal with politics as it pertains to the larger body of conversations on SGB, I do not believe that I am undermining this blog’s reader base. If anyone has an objection to my posting this, please let me know and I delete this entry.
Do you write about any of these issues and communities?
Do you work with these communities as an advocate or ally and would like to write? Would you like to make an impact across your own affected community and reach out to other SGB communities? Would you like to help bridge the gap between all SGB identities to increase understanding, acceptance, rights and respect?
A new collaborative community blog is being launched that will bring these communities, individuals and issues together in frank, open discussion. Contributions will come from anyone that wants to post at the site, cross-posters from other blogs active in a community and featured writers.
