Media

Here you'll find the highlights and history of our media appearances and mentions, as well as how (and if) to contact us if you'd like to get our take, feature us or otherwise talk with us for all kinds of media.

We've a few big nopes:

  • We lack the ability and resources to travel for media or other appearances without coverage of our travel expenses. We also usually cannot participate in any media that requires a response or appearance from us within less than 48 hours.
  • We will not share personally identifying information about our readers or direct service users.
  • We will not take part in anything that seeks to shame or demonize young people around their sexuality (and you are asking or expecting us to get us on board with that).  We will not participate in any interviews or media in which the aim is or has been to cultivate harassment against us or the people we serve.
