Saturday Stories: Get featured on The Girl Map!

To keep this community pumping, I am introducing SATURDAY STORIES. Every Saturday, I’ll post a new story related to the LGBTQA community. Where are these stories going to come from? YOU.

Submit a decent quality/size picture of yourself/the thing your story is about and your story to thegirlmap@gmail.com and include “Saturday Stories” in the subject line. Do NOT submit your story to me on Tumblr or it will get deleted/ignored. Only posts with proper grammar, spelling, and punctuation will be considered. I am only planning on posting a couple each Saturday, so if yours doesn’t get posted right away, it might show up next week or so. Your story should be short, concise, and less than three or four paragraphs.

What kind of stories? Interesting stories of experiences you’ve had related to the LGBTQA community. Tell us your coming out story, tell us about a cool experience you’ve had, tell us a protest or event you organized! I remain dedicated to the idea that The Girl Map is not a place for personal ads. Therefore, any stories without particular substance will be ignored. This is to further illustrate the diversity of our community and to highlight the different experiences we’ve each had so that others can potentially talk to you about the things you’ve experienced to help them with their own situations.

Get to emailing! First rounds will go up tomorrow….

The Girl Map has a NEW LOOK!

Over the past couple weeks, I’ve been working on updating The Girl Map’s look and TODAY it’s live!

I also wanted to thank you all profusely for your continued patience. This has been a rough couple months for me personally and I’ve been struggling to keep my head above water, but the summer is fast-approaching and I’m excited to get to all the submissions!

Check out the new look, let me know what you think (or if you find any problems!), and I’ll talk to you all again very soon. :]

aryeo:

If you’re able, please consider donating in support of our efforts! All contributions will benefit Children’s Miracle Network and 100% of the funds will go to Childrens Hospital Los Angeles.

Happy Holidays!

I hope y’all are having the best holiday season ever and that you take this time to see the beauty in every situation. With the upcoming new year, remember that every day is a new day and a new opportunity to make positive changes in your life, to strive for more, and to get closer to making your dreams a reality.

"Be courageous. It’s one of the only places left uncrowded."
-Anita Roddick

You are all beautiful and I hope you can see the shine inside you that I see.

Fair winds,
Ari
