A magnitude 8.9 earthquake hit Japan yesterday.
Among the affected are surely some gay people.
So can this issue be on the OS cover now?
Yes, there's an open call for videos but there are also other Open Salon stories that should be getting some play.

As I post this, a post is still prominently visible on the cover from yesterday about Gaining perspective on Venice Beach, featuring a pleasant day at the beach. That's very sad, and surely speaks to the overall relevance of the site.
Note: I think it's great there is a liberal amount of gay coverage here, but really I wish there were as much attention to other matters sometimes.
