Outside Magazine

Holy shit! I was just notified by my favorite magazine (Outside) that they will publish a letter I wrote them in the next issue.

In it I praise a recent article they published about transgender rock-climber Nikki Smith. The article is here.


  1. Holy Shit, indeed! How cool is that?? You're practically famous by proxy! ;-P

  2. Congrats! I read the whole article, it was so well written!

    1. Isn't it? I love this magazine for the quality of its writing.

  3. How fabulous is that, Ally. Congratulations! xxx

  4. Thanks so much for publishing this! I loved the article and am passing it on to friends. I also learned about Bronwen Jewelry and have contacted them to see what they plan to offer in larger sizes. I love their style and would live to be a customer!

  5. That is wonderful. I am not surprised as you are a wonderful writer and an authentic voice. I did read her inspiring story and I’m quite impressed pressed with her determination. It is so wonderful to be able become the person that you want to be.

  6. Oh my goodness, thank you so much for sharing that article. It made me so incredibly happy. And yay to you for getting published, that's so exciting and I'm sure you'll share it with us when it happens!

  7. This is amazing news, friend- CONGRATS!

  8. Oooh, how wonderfully exciting! I'll bet you sound much more erudite that I did when Doctor Who Magazine printed my letters back in the 90's when I was wittering on about how much I loved Paul McGann!

  9. So glad I read this! It's a wonderful piece; well-reported and deftly written. I love the transition from Nathan to Nikki in the story's narrative, and how deeply the writer sheds light on the issue of transgender athletes in this arena. Thanks for sharing it :)
