Update #2

One Week Left!

Comment

We have exactly one week left to reach our goal of $7,000. This would allow us to expand the project to the Midwest (and Beyond!) and share more amazing stories of LGBT youth in the United States.

The Huffington Post has been a great help during the Kickstarter campaign, republishing two of our past profiles, Ana and Dohyun, and we got a great write up on Mashable, but we still need your support! Help us spread the word about the fundraiser to your social networks -- twitter, facebook, tumblr, reddit, good ol' word of mouth -- so we can keep the project alive and reach our goal by the morning of Sept 12.

As always, thanks for everything,

Laurel + Diana
