Letter to the Editor



No Pride events in 2020, and 2021 isn’t quite back to normal, but just wanted to say how much I enjoyed Lavender‘s Pride issue this year. I know many publications have had to scale down their print editions during the pandemic, including Lavender, but the Pride issue came out (pun intended) in all its fabulousness! Great stories and features, as I always expect. From Terrance Griep’s sports columns to Steve Lenius’ Leather Life to Zaylore Stout’s Emancipation to the local and statewide tourist attractions and health columns and every single thing in between. Something for everyone!

I’m sure I speak for most of us in the MN queer community that we appreciate Lavender Magazine (its editors and writers) continuing to be there for us during these crazy, uncertain and stressful times. And I do appreciate that it’s still in print. Yes, I have access to this new-fangled thing called the world wide inter-web, but I still enjoy sitting down and relaxing with the printed word and pics!

Here’s to many more annual Pride issues!
