Two Autostraddle readers, Carolyn and Carolyn, are putting together a Coming Out Zine and they need your stories! Submit them here and tell your friends! That’s what Carolyn and Carolyn would do for you, after all.

It’s time to participate in the annual LGBTQ Community Survey! This survey provides data to “assist nonprofits, corporations and governments in better understanding and serving the LGBTQ community” but coolest of all for us, if enough of you participate, we also get to see reader-specific data, which helps Autostraddle better understand Y-O-U, which is honestly all we ever want to do! I’ll be reminding you about this throughout April (the survey closes May 15) , so if you take it now you’ll have over a month to feel that smug satisfaction of already having done the thing that someone is asking you to do. That is my gift to you.
