Help fund Armenian LGBT-related book project by WOW

I posted about this before. As of today, slightly more than 50% of necessary money was pledged. Please, help fund this important Armenian LGBT-related book project by the Women-Oriented Women's (WOW) Collective.
The correspondence includes original emails (in Armenian and in English) written by members of WOW discussing the foundation of the collective, the conceptual details and debates about outreach, awareness, art projects such as “Coming To You To Not Be With You” (August 3-4, 2008), and other important conversations on LGBT issues in Armenia. Some discussion threads include the translation and coining of new phrases in Armenian regarding gender and sexuality, accounts of coming out to self and family, and arguments on the goals of a feminist art collective to present radical views on gender. The book is scheduled for publication in August 2010.
