You don’t have to believe, but Nicole has messaged LGBTQ writers to tell them she was rejecting their writing application because of their “social stance,” when the only social stance they ever wrote about was LGBTQ equality.

Nothing to do with story submissions, because she rejected their application before they could submit a story.

That’s true. It happened. A lot.

That’s bigotry. And it’s unacceptable.

Writer. Runner. Marine. Airman. Former LGBTQ and HIV activist. Former ActUpNY and Queer Nation. Polyglot. Middle-aged, uppity faggot.
