Nashville’s One-In-Teen featured in the Advocate


Nashville’s GLBT teen group One-In-Teen is featured in the current issue of the Advocate (issue 967). The article appears on the "GENQ" page along with a photo of One-in-Teeners Adria Brooks and Andrew.

The article marks the second time in July that Nashville is featured in a national GLBT publication. In addition to the article in the Advocate, the July issue of Instinct Magazine has several feature stories on Nashville.

DeWayne Fulton, OIT’s program director, said the editors at the Advocate contacted the group, saying the magazine was trying to do more youth oriented reporting.

"We’re not exactly sure how the article came about," Fulton said. "One of the Advocate’s GenQ editors contacted us.  He said that someone he knew had recommended he take a look at us for his writing for the Advocate."

The article, "Their own kind of church," talks about how the group gathers each Wednesday night, with one of the members of the group calling it "like our Wednesday night church." The article says OIT is the longest running group of its kind in Tennessee. Ariel Franklyn, Adria Brooks, Nathan Batey and DeWayne Fulton are all quoted in the story.
