Update: October!

This month’s Star Trek post is basically about how the structure of the show lends itself to Kirk/Spock shipping, with particular attention to the famously shippy licensed novel Killing Time.

I Digitized Some Gay Pulp For You

The time has come, friends, to show you some of what I’ve been doing these two long years in graduate school.

Men Like That was one of the earliest history books to deal with queer history in the American South. As such, it’s one of the first books I read for my historiography project on, you guessed it, queer history in the…… Continue reading Book Review: “Men Like That: A Southern Queer History” by John Howard
