I'm fresh back from the 2012 LJ summit in San Francisco and we maintainers are all abuzz with ideas for VP!
One of the things we're talking about is inviting guests to post to VP about issues related to issues facing people of color, people who identify as genderqueer or trans*, people with disabilities, sex workers, etc. There are really no restrictions--the posts would just need to fit within VP's topic range. We hope that doing this would help broaden VP's audience a bit and help make more space for marginalized folks.
Please hop on over to the CVP post about guest writers to share your input and see a couple photos from the summit.
Thanks for being super, as always!
