Ben Appel

I am a writer and an advocate of equality for the LGBTQ community, and I live in New York City.

Spreading awareness of LGBTQ rights issues is the reason that I get out of bed in the morning. I hope that my writing will not only inspire and inform readers, but that it will help members of the LGBTQ community feel less alone and more empowered. I live in the Washington Heights neighborhood of Manhattan with my husband, Drew, and our cat, Brady.
