Hey folks, as some of you might be aware, I'm working on a book that will act as a guide for people new to traveling called The Anarchist's Guide to Travel. While I'm almost finished with the first draft, I realize that writing as a white cis male limits some of my experiences and advice, and I would like to make a book that is as inclusive and helpful to as many individuals as possible.

So to that end, I am seeking people that would be interested in being interviewed about their experiences traveling as a person of color and/or a member of the LGBT community. Interviews can be credited anonymously if you prefer.

Interviews would be via email, and would likely contain several rounds of questions that could be answered at your own pace, although faster is obviously better since I'm looking to finish this book in the next month or so. If you have any questions before hand, please let me know and I'll respond as quickly as I can.

Thanks!

Heya, so nowadays I identify as a male but growing up I had a lot of gender identity issues, and struggles. I'd like to be a part of this
did these identity issues affect your travels or views of others? remember this is specific to travel and meant to relate other's experiences to those that are newly traveling as LGBT or POC. if you have advice for these kinds of travelers, I can include you in the list of people being interviewed.

I'm totally willing to answer any questions, yo.
I tend to relate my personal views upon my gender identity (or lack of) as queer/non-binary.
Hell yeah for you reaching out. Thanks! <3

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $100.00 of $100.00 - reached!
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $200.00 of $200.00 - reached!
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.

Holed up in the shop property for the third day. Fried 6 eggs and made some toast for myself and my dog. Something to spice up the dog kibble life. Poured myself the cheap rum and rootbeer drink.
