Tales From The Wrong Locker Room-potential writing project

Inkblot's picture

Hi guys,

I was wondering if there's enough people/support to compile a book of stories about being a trans teenager. The title of the thread was an idea I had a little while ago, and I thought "there should be such a thing." So, is anybody interested? Pat, I particularly want to hear your thoughts.

I'm not trans, but I'd like

I'm not trans, but I'd like to put my two cents in about a potential project.

Because there probably aren't a ton of trans people on Oasis who would contribute you'd need to get about 13-16 trans teens to contribute and write long stories. I'm thinking everyone would need a 15 page minimum. You could have each author put in a story and some other form of writing or art to create a sturdy base for the book. You may also want to have a section in the book for a few trans-friendly people to write what they have to say on the subject.

That sounds like it's pretty

That sounds like it's pretty cool. I'd like to help, but I'm not trans... but I did have a trans friend. He used to go to school with me. Then he wasn't here anymore. Without telling me what was going on. I miss him. His name used to be sara or dawn (he used both) and then it was Seth (I do believe.) He was awesome. (If you ever see this, you know who you are: message me!)

Guys are pretty confusing, and apparently drooling over them doesn't really break the ice...

Non-trans folks should definately contribute. So, I'll message people in detail as soon as I get the time.
