"How were you able to get an interview with Army National Guard PFC 'Emily'? Is she a friend of yours or did she get in touch with you? I really like the interview. You should catch up with her and do another article about what is happening with her now. Is her and gf still together? Is she still alive? Deployed?"
I’m glad you liked the interview! Thanks for saying so. :) I’d love to answer your questions, but I am not at liberty to answer all of them for the sake of Emily’s privacy and, potentially, her safety.
Interviewing her right now would be difficult, as she is still in the Middle East. But yes, as far as I am aware, she and her girlfriend are still together, very much alive, and well. :) I believe Emily stays on base much of the time. Her girlfriend’s job is much more high risk, but she is doing fine thus far.
For those of you who have no idea what we’re talking about, please refer to an article I wrote in January for Examiner.com.
Have a gay day!! <33
