I am a straight person who is very active in supporting and advocating for GLBT people. I am a former church pastor who is disillusioned by church and fascinated by spirituality.

I love writing and have been blogging for 4 years. I am keen to learn all I can about zines but would also like to connect with and write for the GLBT zine community.

My blog is at http://lchatwin.blogspot.com

Please message me. I love networking and learning from others.

I live in Newcastle, NSW and would love to meet any of you in the area.
