As we are nearing the end of LGBTQ history month (established in the USA in 1994) I thought it would be fun to host a small, quick, and easy swap for those of us aligned with the LGBTQ community or allies to send some LGBTQ positivity to our mailboxes!

For this swap you will have one partner to send one note card to in which you will write about you favorite LGBTQ piece of history, be it an event, book, movie, or historical person. If you would like you can even share a little about your journey in the LGBTQ community.

To brighten up the note card add some rainbows, Pride ephemera if you have it, a positive & affirming quote, a unicorn - show off some of your beautiful colors!

In short the swap requirements are as follows:

  • This is a newbie friendly swap, however I reserve the right to ban people based on my own discretion
  • NO recent 1s & 3s without an explanation
  • I will angel this swap after you have rated your partner a ONE
  • You will have 1 partner who you will send 1 note card
  • Write about your favorite piece of LGBTQ history
  • Optional: Write a little bit about your journey in the LGBTQ community (if applicable)
  • Add some color or fun! It can be a drawing of a rainbow inside the note card, a cute rainbow tattoo you got at a Pride festival, a positive & affirming quote about the LGBTQ experience, add some love!
  • This is an international swap - DO NOT add the name of the swap to the outside of the envelope as to avoid accidental outing of your partner in case they live in a hostile environment
  • Rate your partner promptly and contact them first to resolve issues. If you need me to get involved please message me through the SB messenger system.

If you have any questions about this swap please send me a message through the SB messenger system.

Happy LGBTQ History Month & Happy Swapping!

Clarification.....Is it okay to do rainbow type mail art on the outside envelope? or would that "out" someone as well? Thank you

If I wasn’t doing NaNoWriMo I would be all over this. And I am definitely open to more pride lgbtq related swaps throughout the year...hint, hint. ;)

@TurtleLove I would ask your partner if possible when partners are assigned if it is "safe" for them to receive mail like that, but in general it should be okay! I say use your discretion on how "loud" you make it. Thanks for the question!

@splendorpursuit i'll be doing my best to host some more LGBTQ swaps after my Winter Hiatus. You should join to give your self a little break from NaNoWriMo don't you think? ;) (Best of luck!!!!)

This is awesome! It's going to be so hard to decide on which favorite bit of history.
