Contact me on the email address below. My DMs are open on Twitter too.
I never ever accept guest posts on The Guyliner, so please don’t ask, as I won’t be able to reply.
Want me to write for you?
Where have you been all my life? Email me immediately at firstname.lastname@example.org. I can write about almost anything except football – unless you’re looking for 1200 words on why I hate it so much.
Want me to speak at an event or come on the radio or something?
If you simply can’t live until you’ve counted my wrinkles in person, then perhaps consider holding some kind of event which I can appear at, or speak in. I talk about the usual stuff any of my readers would come to expect. And, no, I don’t have a Yorkshire accent of any description so if you’re a northerner fetishist, you might be better off with Mel B. I enjoy the absolute terror of doing live radio but I only do paid opportunities as all… this [gestures vaguely in direction of clapped-out body] is quite literally my only source of income.
Want to know more about my novels?
My literary agent is Becky Thomas at Johnson & Alcock. Clara Diaz at Little, Brown is in charge of all publicity for THE LAST ROMEO, and probably the next one too, so if you want me to do something re that, then holler in her very efficient direction: email@example.com
Want me to collaborate with your brand?
I get asked about this a lot – usually from people who have never seen a photograph of me tbh – and I am open to this and have begun to do some sponsored stuff, but only for brands I would use anyway or that I know for sure my readers would be interested in. I won’t just plug anything so do consider my reach (modest but valuable to me), audience (intelligent and also very valuable to me) and my own moral code (I have nothing to add here) before contacting me about any opportunities.
Got a dilemma?
One of the things I do is try to help readers with their life/dating/relationship dilemmas.
If you have a dilemma you would like my help with, please email me: firstname.lastname@example.org. Just a reminder for anyone not listening above: I don’t accept guest posts, please don’t ask.
It doesn’t really matter what kind of problem it is. Maybe your other half is a shocking kisser, or perhaps your parents are struggling to deal with you coming out. Whatever’s worrying you, write in for my ‘unique take’ (that’s what they all say) on your woes. I’ve been around a bit; I might be able to help.
I take this quite seriously, you know; I’m not just going to laugh at your problem and then write a reply that makes me look funny but makes you feel stupid.
Take a look at previous dilemmas from my column on Gay Times to give you an idea. , but I’ll answer dilemmas from anyone, whatever your orientation or taste in shoes.
If you’re LGBT and need emergency advice and can’t wait for a reply, or don’t want to be in a mag/column, get in touch with Switchboard – they’re awesome.
Some disclaimer type stuff: I can’t answer every contact individually – though sometimes I might – and your dilemma may be edited for space. I’m the only person who will see your email, unless I need to ask a third party for some additional help or advice, but I won’t share your details. I’ll make up a random first name for you and no other details will be published, unless you refer to them in your dilemma and they’re relevant to it (ages, that kind of thing). In short: this is not going to be a hatchet job.
Got a question about what I do and why I do it?
Want to know more about me?
The blog was anonymous for a variety of reasons – mainly because I’m extra af – but I’ll happily answer any queries. Just email me on theguyliner[at]gmail[dot]com. My real name is Justin – don’t wear it out. Also, for the last time, no, I do not accept guest posts.
If you’d rather your email didn’t appear in anything I write on this blog or any other publication I work for, please specify ‘NOT FOR PUBLICATION’. Otherwise, I may use it in some way (not in a horrible way).
