Are you "Waiting for Sex"? Do you wish there wasn't so much pressure to have sex!? Or... do you wish sex wasn't such a big deal!?

YGA is looking to interview people who are either a) waiting for sex, b) interested in long-term monogamous relationships, c) tired of the idea that gay people have to sleep around, d) on the opposite side and wish people didn't stigmatize people who have sex so much! If you want to participate in this YGA Feature story by sharing your thoughts, contact YGA Editor Mike Glatze directly with a short e-mail at

Please get in touch with us RIGHT AWAY because we're working on this story this week and next!!!

Hey guys. My name is Ramin and I'm a reporter at Newsweek. I'm working on a story about gay teens -- and what it's like to be a gay teenager in the year 2005. I was wondering if any of you would be willing to talk to me about your experiences in middle school and high school.

#1 POST -- Help Re-Name Magazine For Gay Youth!!!

YGA MAGAZINE - the first all lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgendered, queer, and questioning (and straight too) youth magazine in North America is going to re-brand in order to come up with a PERFECT name that encompasses everybody and doesn't turn any people or potential readers away from us !:)

HELP US> we need your input. What are some good titles for this publication? How about PUSH? That's a great title. Too bad it's already taken by three magazines... including a great queer / feminist publication! We need to keep the VIGOR and ENERGY of YGA but also include the PASSION of the vision we all share of that bright future with happy queer people everywhere and no such thing as discrimination. Hmmmm...... get talking. Spit out your ideas. Argue. We created this Blog for exactly that purpose.

We'll get back on here with some of our ideas shortly. Until then.... what are your ideas!?
