Letters: Being an Activist

Jun 17, 2021 | 2020 Spring - Being an Activist

Dear BWQ,

I just submitted my donation. I apologize that I couldn’t make as big of a donation as I did last year, I recently lost my job and have been struggling a bit. BWQ is such a light in my life and an incredible resource, and I promise my ongoing support. As soon as I am able, I plan to give more to this great cause. Thank you for everything you do!

I love that BWQ provides a space for a community of women who have all had such different lives and distinct life experiences to unite over the shared experience of our bisexual identity. It provides something unique I have yet to find elsewhere of feeling supported and loved by a group of people who I don’t know and who don’t know me, yet who understand me in an elemental way so that they don’t need to have met and talked to me to know me. It reminds me in the loneliest of moments that I am never really alone.

Dear BWQ,

We just made our donation to BWQ. We wanted to let you know how much we enjoy each edition. We always come away with both new knowledge and new understanding. We read every word and especially love seeing writing by local women. I hope you continue this publication for decades!
