The WAND Survey
The recent Stonewall celebration has made us at The Wand think about our roots, and
about the direction that we want to be taking in the future. When The Wand started in
the mid 80's, we were among the only womyn/lesbian publications availabale to the
community. Since then, we have had many faces, and many expressions of the
feelings and concerns buzzing about in the community. Also since then, we have seen
a positive growth of lesbian/gay publications in Houston as well as around the U.S.
So, as part of a mid-life crisis, we wanted to once again get the pulse of the Houston
community in order to continue to publish useful information which is easily accessible
and free. Please fill out the survey, and provide us with feedback. Please feel free to
include additional information, comments, opinions, etc. And remember, we are
ALWAYS looking for fresh faces, new blood, and different insights. We are a part of
Houston lesbian herstory; let's continue to serve each other's needs.
