The theme of this issue is “Growing Older.”
Folks were asked: “What are the challenges/
opportunities of being an older bi+ person? How
has aging transformed you—in mind, body, spirit,
or sexuality? How have you stayed the same?
What have been the most significant moments or
transitions in your life?”
We present to you the writing of women & nonbinary folks from a wide range of experience.
In addition, I am delighted to feature the writings
of three Jamaican women in our “Around the
World” feature. And, of course, there’s our calendar
of events and our advice column.
I’ve been wanting for some time to shine some light
on the behind-the-scenes volunteer energy that
makes BWQ possible. Thanks to Gail Zacharias
who has maintained our print mailing list for
decades; to Alana Martin who puts significant
effort into keeping our websites in good shape;
and to Charlotte Alger who keeps our calendar
and schedules our brunches. This is not a complete
list—I’ll thank others in future issues.
And finally, it has been a pleasure to finally have
the capacity to hire—and pay—student interns.
You can read about our two most recent interns
on page 23. If you appreciate BWQ, please keep
those donations coming. Your support makes a difference.
