Invincible Summer: A Queer Romance Come to Life

INVINCIBLE SUMMER

dear WHOLE WIDE WORLD…

i have met my match.  her name is Lisa Ganser and she is perfect for me, we are in L O V E.  only problem is she lives in minneapolis and i live in san francisco.   and we are gonna change that.  so we have launched this campaign to raise money so she can move here and we can be together.

from our pitch:  “We are Lisa Ganser (Minneapolis, MN) and Nomy Lamm (San Francisco, CA), and we have fallen bravely, sweetly, expansively into a love that has quickly turned both of our lives around and saturated us with possibility.  Much of it played out publicly on Facebook (there are good things that happen with social media).  If you believe for even half a second that those sappy songs, those sonnets, those movies, those cheesy musicals have any truth in them…  Well enable us.  Enable what we are in, this romantic comedy that is our life.  Love is not just for the most privileged amongst us!  You don’t have to be rich and straight and skinny and able bodied to be the main character.  You don’t have to wait until you are able to get married.  You can be a radical queer fat activist crazy person on disability, someone who would always rather give to your community than ask for help, and you can say:  We want to be together, and we need support to make this happen.  Please open up your heart, your pocket, your coin purse, your fanny pack for us, to help make this dream a reality.”

perks include making a wish for you, liking all your posts on facebook, telling our friends we think you’re cute, setting you up on a date, and calling out YOUR name during sex ;)
