Posted April 19, 2020 08:07:04AUSTIN, Texas — Lesbian erotic story author and activist Stephanie Ehrlich will perform a lesbian erotic stories hour for the #LGBTq event on MSNBC.
The event, titled #LesbianEroticStoryHour, is the brainchild of Ehrlein, a lesbian feminist writer and performer who has written about the oppression of lesbian and gay people for years.
Ehrlich said she decided to launch the event because of the growing visibility of the LGBT community in the media.
“The mainstream media has been so inundated with images of a queer lesbian, the visibility of their struggle, the fear of being targeted,” Ehrli said.
“It’s been a constant battle for me.
I am just a queer woman of color in a white, straight world, trying to do my best to create a space where I can feel safe.”
Ehrlich, who is also a queer feminist, is a former journalist for ABC News, where she covered the history of the civil rights movement.
She has written for the Huffington Post, Vice, the New York Times, Esquire, Vanity Fair and other publications.
Ehrlitt, a graduate of the University of Texas at Austin, is currently working as a professional writer for the network’s news and current affairs programs.
In addition to Ehrleich, the lineup includes former U.S. Rep. Donna Edwards, who announced in March she would be launching a campaign to repeal the ban on same-sex marriage, as well as former U,S.
Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn., who has been a vocal advocate for LGBT rights.
While she is a writer for MSNBC, Ehrlis will also be the voice of the event, and will provide a host of interviews and stories for the participants.
Erelich has been an advocate for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender issues and has worked as a consultant to a variety of organizations.
She has worked with the Human Rights Campaign, the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, the American Civil Liberties Union and the Humanitarian Task Force on LGBT Rights.
Ehrlenbach said she has received support from the local LGBTQ community and will also have her own LGBTQ outreach events to help people connect to and feel welcome.
