GOFUNDME THANK YOU - A LETTER OF GRATITUDE SGN readers donate $15,705 in 2020

As 2020 comes to a close and we reflect on this difficult year, we pause to give thanks that despite the hardships we are still here. 2020, a year that none of us could have possibly predicted. 2020, four numbers that represent so much loss for so many people. It has been a liar, a cheat, and a deceiver through a horrific virus that has no discrimination. Although 2020 has left behind mangled rubbish for many of us, organically, even the most delicate plant can break through the rot and start new growth and rejuvenation. This is my hope for 2021.

Venturing forward into this new year, we thank every individual donor for giving us the ability to continue the voice of the Seattle Gay News. A voice that has been resilient for over 45 years. This paper has a spirit that cannot be broken. The spirit is YOU, our readers. You have allowed us to continue to tell the sad stories of 2020, as well as the hopeful ones as we move forward, and for that we are most grateful.

We will continue our GoFundMe campaign to sustain our production as we weather what we hope is the last of the COVID storm. Stay tuned to see what is happening next at the SGN.

In conjunction with our existing staff, we will be introducing a team of Next Generation writers who will share fresh perspectives and insight into the modern-day LGBTQIA+ experience. Thank you again, SGN friends and family. We would not be here without YOU. We wish you a heartfelt salutation of gratitude; that you may be able to see the blessings within the losses for this New Year's Day 2021.
