Charity[edit]

On November 27, 2012 Portland musician Logan Lynn Produced and released a compilation record titled "Comp 175: A Benefit for Queer Programs and Services in the Pacific Northwest"[1] which featured 36 bands across 45 songs. The 3-disc set was sold for $15 and [2] to this day, 100% of the proceeds from the record go directly to benefit the work of Q Center,[3] which operates both the LGBTQ Community Center and the Sexual & Gender Minority Youth Resource Center (SMYRC) in Portland, Oregon.[4] The tagline seen in all promotional materials for the album read "Your purchase of this record helps to ensure that the important work of this vital community resource continues."[5] The day the album was released, Logan Lynn, Jeb Havens and Kelly Moe appeared together on a live broadcast of Out Loud Radio, where they were each interviewed about the charity.[6]

Concept[edit]

Paragraph 175, also known as "Section 175", was a provision of the German Criminal Code from 1871 to 1994, making homosexuality a crime. Over 140,000 people were convicted under the law. The Nazis broadened the law in 1935 and thousands died in concentration camps in the prosecutions that followed. According to producer Logan Lynn, "Comp 175" was given its title because "Today, all over the world, the fight for LGBTQ freedom and equality is not yet won."[7][8]
