New magazine article

By Katharine Swan On Sunday, May 04, 2008 At 2:06 PM

I recently started writing for METROMODE, a Denver gay and lesbian magazine. Although I'm straight and happily married, I have been writing for gay and lesbian publications for a couple of years now, starting with The Rainbow Babies during the summer of 2006.

Anyway, the April/May edition of METROMODE recently came out, and inside its pages is my first article for the magazine: a profile of Senator Jennifer Veiga, the Colorado legislature's first openly gay politician.

My name was even listed in the masthead under "Contributing Writers." I'm so proud!

Very cool! I've wanted to write for the gay/lesbian mags too, but I was never sure they'd accept my work since I had no experience in the culture. Glad to see that's not the case!

Always cool to get a byline! Congrats!

All you need is someone to take a chance on you -- and a willingness to become familiar with the culture. Good luck! :o)


Thank you!


Thanks -- and it's good to hear from you! Glad to see you're back!
