We got a chance to chat with Andrew Oldershaw about life, his many projects, being featured on the November 2008 cover of Instinct Magazine, and how normal guys like you and I can get started making a difference in our own community.
How has the reaction to your Instinct cover been?
My friends joke and poke and give me grief, but I've gotten a ton of emails from total strangers. It gives you goosebumps when a young gay kid you've never met from Illinois tells you his life story and that he's planning to get a few friends together to start a pro-social community group after reading it. I've had people ask about coming out, about organizations to donate to, about how they can roll up their sleeves and do something. That's exactly why I did it. That's the spirit of standing and being counted. I guess you never know (and certainly never expect) how one seemingly ordinary life can influence others. I'm touched. We've got a lot of work to do, and we'll need all hands on deck.
