Re-Reading Childhood Favorites is Super Queer

I’ve been re-reading an increasing number of books this year, books from when I was very young that I don’t remember very well at all. I don’t usually re-read very much, but the more I read, the more they jog my memory and lead me to other books I used to love. As a disclaimer,…… Continue reading Re-Reading Childhood Favorites is Super Queer

Review: Wicked Gentlemen by Ginn Hale

Y’all know I love a good gay fantasy novel. It’s even something of a resolution to read more of them this year, or rather more queer genre fiction in general, because there are plenty of niche classics I’ve been meaning to read for years. Wicked Gentlemen was recommended to me absolute ages ago as one of those…… Continue reading Review: Wicked Gentlemen by Ginn Hale

Review: “Secret Historian: The Life and Times of Samuel Steward, Professor, Tattoo Artist, and Sexual Renegade” by Justin Spring

I don’t review much nonfiction on this blog. I like reading it, I often make a particular effort to include it in lists, and y’all seem to enjoy reading my term papers, but I haven’t done many reviews for some reason. I guess nonfiction books can seem more specialized, and even if I think a…… Continue reading Review: “Secret Historian: The Life and Times of Samuel Steward, Professor, Tattoo Artist, and Sexual Renegade” by Justin Spring

Review: Brute by Kim Fielding

I found Brute, a disability-themed gay fantasy romance by Kim Fielding, when the excellent Lola of Hit or Miss Books reviewed it in January of 2015. And then it took me two years to read it because public libraries don’t carry many books like that, and I just never got around to buying the ebook. I’m glad…… Continue reading Review: Brute by Kim Fielding

Review: Netflix’s Series of Unfortunate Events

I’ve been anxiously awaiting Netflix’s A Series of Unfortunate Events since the first announcement, and it’s surpassed by wildest expectations. Rich aesthetics, witty and gripping, manages to be unexpected despite my love of the books, and the whole production team seems to have wholeheartedly embraced creating this slightly off-kilter world. And it has an intro sequence with…… Continue reading Review: Netflix’s Series of Unfortunate Events

Review: Love is Love, IDW Publishing

The Pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando, Florida last summer was a gut-punch to the queer community. A lot of us came out the next day in solidarity… I was already “out,” but posted about it on Facebook for the first time. I wanted to do something to help, and I felt like not being as out as…… Continue reading Review: Love is Love, IDW Publishing

Review: O Human Star by Blue Delliquanti

Today I bring you the shortest of reviews. I won’t waste your time — you could be spending it reading this book, after all: O Human Star is a comic which the creator, Blue Delliquanti, identifies as a “science fiction family drama.” It’s full of queer characters and robots. Some of the queer characters ARE robots. All…… Continue reading Review: O Human Star by Blue Delliquanti

3 Gay Actor Documentaries

Apparently I was in the mood for documentaries this weekend! Fortunately for me, Netflix is currently offering three movies (mostly) about gay actors, particularly interesting watched together: The Out List, To Be Takei, and Tab Hunter Confidential. The Out List (2013) This one’s not entirely about LGBT actors, I just thought it was. It’s a one-hour documentary about…… Continue reading 3 Gay Actor Documentaries
