Where the Love Light Gleams



‘Tis the holiday season, and that means oh-so-many-things to oh-so-many-of-us. Perhaps you are headed home from college, or maybe you have decided to spend the holidays with friends this year. Maybe you live at home with supportive, encouraging family members, or you might live at home with family who either may not be supportive or may be unaware of your sexuality or gender identity. Wherever you are, and whoever you are, the holiday season should always be one full of warmth, love, and light. With that in mind, we’ve worked with our very dear (and queer!) friends to put together a holiday e-care package called ‘Where the Love Light Gleams’ so that – no matter what – you get a dose of love and kindness (and coloring and music and crosswords…)!

You can sign up for your holiday e-care package here:


The tools included in the e-care package are all geared toward the very important act of self-care. You can start, if you like, by popping your headphones in and listening to the songs on our holiday playlist, curated by Jenny Owen Youngs with a cover designed by Kate Leth. Next, maybe you’ll want to read some of the advice, essays, & resources we’ve compiled to help soothe some of your worries. If you’re feeling a little low or lost, dig into the holiday-and-queer-themed crossword puzzle created by Carrie Wade, print out the coloring or journaling pages, or read the cute-as-hell holiday comic, all designed by Brittney Williams!
