Issue 2 Excerpt – Interview with Heather Gold

Kate Kotler interviewed comedienne and Tummel-er Heather Gold for LPCH Issue 2. Here’s an excerpt =

Gold – […] I learned this stuff from making every mistake you can make. I went through a ten-year coming out process. On many levels. It took a long time for me to be okay with myself.

Bottom line is that you’re different. People need other people to be like them to be comfortable … sometimes. I think [it’s] challenging …emotionally being okay with someone who is not the same as you. And, I think that’s a parent-child dynamic, too. I’m hoping to become a parent, and we’ll see if this process works -knock, knock. Even if you’re not gay – the odds of you wanting stuff your parents don’t see or want for you – are pretty universal.

[But really], it was much harder to come out as an artist than a lesbian. For me to accept that about myself. Because it’s financially challenging and obviously I have an education and people were like “Why are you doing this? You could be doing that.” It’s not often you meet people who will be like it’s great that you’re doing [stand-up comedy].”

Hey Folks

So, here’s the thing. No, we don’t have Issue 2 done but YES we have a new insurgence of people working on it! Yay!

In the next couple of weeks I’ll be highlighting and welcoming people to the CH Family. And if you have a desire to be a regular contributor on the CH blog and are serious about being committed, send me some info about you and what you would write about. leahATleahpeahDOTcom.

Slight Delay

Hello! We’re working on Issue 2 and can I just tell you it looks AWESOME. You people? Rock with your creative selves.

Originally, we were hoping to have the issue out by June 14th. Then real life got in the way. You know, JOBS and BILLS and DEADLINES and REALITY TV. (Just kidding on that last one.) (Probably kidding.)

We’re hoping to have the issue done by the first part of July, barring all emergencies and natural disasters. Thanks for your patience and support!!!

Issue 2 Deadline

Hey Friends! Issue 1 is out the gate and can be purchased here at Magcloud.

Issue 2 is coming up and we’re looking for submissions! The deadline is May 15th. We don’t have a specific theme because we really want people to submit what they are loving at the moment. I can tell you that some areas we are looking for include –

– Step-by-step or How-Tos in an unusual area i.e. how to pick the perfect flower
– A Day with (someone)
– Intimate Time with My city/neighborhood/house/kitchen etc.

But, go with whatever you’re loving right now! Your excitement and passion are what make a great story.
