Love Les launched February 5th, 2017 as a passion project. I wanted to connect readers across the States to a coming out resource. (I never dreamed that Love Les would have a global audience, much less reach 113 countries.) Love Les, is a collection of queer stories showcasing ordinary queer people simply living their lives. I truly believe that stories can change lives.

The deets about Love Les:

- weekly features

- surprisingly personal stories

-even more surprisingly, sometimes religious

The why?

- to offer a safe space

     - to celebrate life inside & outside the closet    

            - to normalize queer voices

I dreamed up Love Les shortly after coming out myself. Growing up in a smaller conservative town, I didn’t have examples of LBGTQ people- I never heard their stories, experienced their love, or witnessed their happiness. I wanted Love Les to be the coming out resource I wish I had: a place for coming out stories, a home for sappy love confessions, and a treasure trove of examples of what life might look like outside of the closet. 

I hope Love Les is a safe place for people who aren’t ready to come out yet; a source of profound hope for individuals experiencing pain or persecution for simply being themselves, and a catalyst for celebration within all communities. Love simply is, and our team will celebrate it every time.
