Hi Tracy Aston,

I tried replying to your private note, but I was unable to for reasons I don’t understand. I typed it fine, but pushing the send button had no effect. I didn’t receive any error messages, but nothing happened. I’m assuming the note did not post.

This is the content:

Apparently not too many people do, no. My conversion therapy series was moderately successful. I took that to mean that I could write this type of fiction on Medium and find an audience, if a fairly small one. Evidently, though, I was misjudging. Something about that prior series must have set it apart. The homeless kid thing has not found an audience at all.

Perhaps Medium is the wrong platform for important LGBTQ issues. I don’t know.
