NEWS: Read Giselle and Help Support LGBT Youth

I’d like to take a moment today to introduce you all to Giselle Renarde, a fellow Canuck, erotica author, and activist for LGBT rights.

During this holiday season, Giselle is raising money for a very worthy organization called the LGBT Youthline – a free service through which young lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, transsexual, two-spirit and queer volunteers provide support and counselling to their peers. Based in Ontario and available to the under-26 crowd, the LGBT Youthline offers support over the phone, via online chat, and via email.

To help support the cause, Giselle is donating all royalties from her transgender-focused works, including Red Satin, Third Rail, and The Little Burlesque House by the Sea. Buy any (or all!) of these titles from any reputable retailer through the end of December and Giselle will donate her portion of the royalties to the LGBT Youthline.

To maximise your donation, please consider purchasing them directly from the publishers' websites (as linked above), since a larger percentage of the purchase price will go to the LGBT Youthline. For more details, please check out the details over at Giselle's blog, Donuts and Desires.

Kudos to Giselle for such a wonderful idea. I fully intend to purchase all three titles when I get home tonight (and hope you will too), so look for my reviews soon . . . I can't wait to start reading!
