Yesterday I had my books at the SMYRC (Sexual and Gender Minority Youth Resource Center) Booth Portland Gay Pride, with a donation going to SMYRC. I was invited to be at that booth because four people from SMYRC were interviewed in my book. I stood in front of my booth and handed out bookmarks (about 300) which opened up the conversation. I had second best book sales so far (the best sales was my first with my friends in a Gay Bar in Portland). The people at Portland Pride were great and I made a lot of contacts (older women bought the most books). I think ‘Giving Back’ made my book more desirable and it felt good too. I know I was among my Genre but it was more than that. I will be looking for more opportunities to give back in the future.
