Journalist Seeking GSA Couples

A journalist is looking for GSA couples. Here is what she requested I pass along...
Hi There,

My name is Candice and I write for the national magazines and newspapers, such as Take A Break, Chat, Daily Mirror, That's Life and New to name a few here in the UK.

I wondered if would be interested in speaking to me and sharing your story about genetic sexual attraction, whether it is something you have experienced or if you are in a relationship right now?

We love doing these types of stories and showing society that we should celebrate love, no matter what!

I'd like to reassure you that I'd never publish your story without your permission and you would receive a full read back to ensure you were completely happy with how it sounded. I am more than willing to work around you and your concerns.

You would have to be pictured for the article, and first names used. It would just be for UK mags so it wont be online or on any news outlets, the you is actually extremely slim. You will also be paid a fee by the magazine.

If you are interested, please email me on

Best wishes,

Emphasis mine.

On the positive side, she promises not to publish without your approval. On the negative side is having to be pictured for the article, which would more or less mean coming out. While people experiencing GSA need more visibility, the catch-22 is that coming out can be very risky. It's a decision that nobody else should make for you.

Journalists who want to make similar requests through this blog should read this.

To prevent spam, comments will have to be approved, so your comment may not appear for several hours. Feedback is welcome, including disagreement. I only delete/reject/mark as spam: spam, vulgar or hateful attacks, repeated spouting of bigotry from the same person that does not add to the discussion, and the like. I will not reject comments based on disagreement, but if you don't think consenting adults should be free to love each other, then I do not consent to have you repeatedly spout hate on my blog without adding anything to the discourse.

If you want to write to me privately, then either contact me on Facebook, email me at fullmarriageequality at protonmail dot com, or tell me in your comment that you do NOT want it published. Otherwise, anything you write here is fair game to be used in a subsequent entry. If you want to be anonymous, that is fine.

IT IS OK TO TALK ABOUT SEX IN YOUR COMMENTS, BUT PLEASE CHOOSE YOUR WORDS CAREFULLY AS I WANT THIS BLOG TO BE AS "SAFE FOR WORK" AS POSSIBLE. If your comment includes graphic descriptions of activity involving minors, it's not going to get published.
