Noelle, She/Her. . “I teach at a highschool, and it's a stressful year to be an educator. Going back into the school building during a pandemic is unnerving, but I do miss my job and the kids. Teaching is an integral piece of who I am, so it's been difficult to have that absence in my life. Lately, I've been trying to focus my energy on redesigning my curriculum to be more culturally responsive and inclusive. My goal is to center a lot of my lessons around antiracism work while including more literature from BIPOC and LGBTQ+ folks. I'm ready to start having meaningful, real-world conversations with my students again, even if it means doing so on an online platform. I need it. They need it. We all do.” . @naugerr

Landon, He/Him. . “I read 73 books during quarantine, I’m at 109 so far this year. I still don’t feel like I’m reading enough. There are so many books out there sometimes I get stressed about how I’ll never get to them all. I’m an English teacher too, so I live and breathe books. Being queer, transgender, and a teacher has been an odd experience but thankfully one filled with love and support from my students. This year has been ultra stressful for everyone. As an introvert I’ve loved spending so much time alone with my dog Wiggles but I’m glad to see students again. Even when I’m stressed about everything at least I can say I’ve read over 100 books this year, right?” . @landokrando

Knate, He/They . “I’ve been a lot of things in my short lifetime. Drag, Magick, Art, Teaching, Love; they’re all an act of temperance. Great things happen in that weird liminal space, between one place and the next.” . Knate is leading QGP & @brunswicktopsham’s foraging event this weekend, which was booked in a matter of hours. Contact QGP to be added to the waitlist in case there are drops. We can’t wait to see you there! . @knatebunny

Joey, He/Him . “I was born and raised in southern Maine and spent a lot of time trying to convince myself that I’m something that I’m not. Over the last three years I have discovered a lot about who I am and who I want to be, and have never been happier. No one should ever be ashamed of who they are, and know that the people around them will love and support them no matter what. I’m currently the most “me” I’ve ever been and I don’t plan on looking back.” . @hendrijo93
