Ryan Rivas, publisher of Burrow Press and one of the hosts of WPRK radio show "Functionally Literate," posted a message today on Facebook inviting LGBTQ writers to read their work or share their thoughts on the show.

On Functionally Literate Radio, this Thursday morning, we're inviting writers from Orlando's LGBTQ community to share their thoughts and work. If you are an LGBTQ writer in Central Florida and would like to visit the WPRK studio to share your thoughts, statements, or art, or if you would like to have those thoughts read by one of us in the studio, please send an email to flradio@burrowpress.com. We'll provide you with details. We do not have a format planned. We are simply stepping aside, and opening the airwaves to your thoughts.

We welcome readers to submit letters regarding articles and content in Orlando Weekly. Letters should be a minimum of 150 words, refer to content that has appeared on Orlando Weekly, and must include the writer's full name, address, and phone number for verification purposes. No attachments will be considered. Writers of letters selected for publication will be notified via email. Letters may be edited and shortened for space.

Email us at feedback@orlandoweekly.com.
