Good for Amber. I REALLY hope she makes the Olympics. I've liked her skating for five years and I'm so glad she's finally starting to get it together. She's pretty much my favorite US skater. After her, I hope to see Alysa there too. The third spot probably to Bradie since she's such a hard worker and I like her chill approach.
Amber is such a fun skater to watch. With her, you see huge emotional investment in every performance, too.

"Queerty is honoring 50 individuals who made a positive impact in the last year and who are helping to lead the nation toward equality, acceptance, and dignity for all queer people."

Article referenced in the Queerty article from March 2021:
Cross referencing from US ladies thread. Thanks @layman

ETA that I've started a GSD thread for Amber's most recent articles - Amber Glenn: What Pride Month Means To Me As An Out Athlete

Bump up for Amber. She did a great job today in the free skate and also the short program. Her confidence is stronger. Love it

As Someone else posted in the competition thread today ..... “Amber Glenn was the only skater today without a single q, <, or ! Well done!”

So proud of Amber today. It’s been a long time coming to put out two awesome programs in an international competition. Overcoming nerves and just going for it has to be a huge confidence builder for her. The crowd was really getting into the final part of her program. Hopefully she can ride the love and support moving forward.

She was nice enough to pose with fans after the FS. I was totally freaking out. One minute I was texting ANL about the competition and the next I’m posing with Amber - she TOUCHED my back. I’m still giddy.

I really appreciate her power and speed and emotion. To me that stood out from the more robotic performances from other skaters. And good on her for no q, ! Or <

Youve definitely become my new friend. Let’s get in trouble at skate America next year. I will go.

Congrats to Amber on breaking 200 points (201.02) for the first time internationally! :)

NBC Sports has uploaded both of her Skate America programs (with Weir/Gannon commentating; think these are geoblocked outside the USA):

This is a cheer thread so I’ll just say:

Win Nationals, Amber, for any chance to make the Oly team! Isn’t the rule that the only one automatically given a spot on the Oly team is the winner? I fear that if Amber finishes anything less than first, she’ll probably get dinged on BOW.

Fan Zone article by Darci Miller before Amber competes at Skate America:
But she needed a clean slate, and so she decided to part ways with her old coaching team in Texas and strike out on her own. She moved to Colorado Springs, Colorado, to train with Damon Allen, Tammy Gambill and Viktor Pfeifer.
"Everything parted ways on great terms," Glenn said. "I'm so thankful. It was just time for me to try something new. I couldn't stay in the same environment or the same kind of routine that I had. I had to do something new."
It's taken her some time to adjust to the new environment in Colorado – namely the altitude, as well as moving away from Texas and her family for the first time in her life – but the change, she says, has been worth it.
"It had been a long time since I had worked with any different coaching staff, and being surrounded by people who are doing these triples and quads and stuff has been extremely motivating," Glenn said. "I'm challenging myself on my programs, on my choreography, on my technical skills. It's been very rewarding. I feel like I'm getting the most out of myself right now."

@AngieNikodinovLove when you return to the U.S. you have to get the free Opera browser and you will be able to watch. I finally got it up and working yesterday, thanks to helpful FSU folks, so I could watch the men's and pairs medals ceremony and rewatch some of the performances I liked best.

I also watched the SA Exhibition skates. Amber was absolutely on fire in her performance to Billie Eilish. Wow! She skated like she does in her TikTok videos. You have to see it! Fierce!!
