THIS NEW PROJECT FROM ANDRO & EVE CONNECTS LGBTQ+ WOMEN USING THE LONG LOST ART OF LETTER WRITING.
A strong support system is vital for LGBTQ+ people of all ages. Pen Gals is a way for women to share experiences, information and support across the generations.
The knowledge that your words will be read by one person, and one person only, is a strange notion in today’s world of online presences and public profiles. It’s an intimate and often cathartic experience to commit to paper, words that can’t be deleted. Deciding what information to share about yourself with a stranger, and having to describe yourself in a definite way, can often lead to new insights about your self. Writing letters can build your knowledge of the world and foster empathy with people different to you. Promoting a strong sense of self and building a stronger community is absolutely what PEN GALS is all about.
If you are woman identifying as LGBTQ+ and would like to write to another woman older or younger than you, get in touch with the subject line ‘PEN GALS’ to firstname.lastname@example.org, fill in our online contact form, OR write to us at the following address, telling us your name and a telephone number and whether you’d like to write to someone older or younger!
