10 Book Recommendations for GLBT Book Month (#queerpop)

It’s Pride Month! Not coincidentally, it’s also the American Library Association’s first-ever GLBT Book Month. Tailor-made for #queerpop, am I right?

I tried…… Continue reading 10 Book Recommendations for GLBT Book Month (#queerpop)

A to Z: Victoria Hand

Spoilers for the character and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Victoria Hand is a lesbian S.H.I.E.L.D. agent who appeared in the Dark Avengers and New Avengers titles from 2010 to 2012. I’ve only read a few issues, but near as I can tell, she was kind of an idiot. Or maybe just a jerk. She also spent a lot of time…… Continue reading A to Z: Victoria Hand

A to Z: The Question (Renee Montoya)

Renee Montoya’s meta-history is just as interesting as her in-character backstory. She was an original character created for the Batman: The Animated Series show in 1992 — an honest cop and a woman of color. Along with other fan-favorite TAS characters like Harley Quinn, she made the jump to DC Comics canon and has since…… Continue reading A to Z: The Question (Renee Montoya)

A former student at the US Military Academy, she was discharged under Don’t Ask Don’t Tell. Her father, also military, supported her decision to tell the truth, and…… Continue reading A to Z: Batwoman

Review of Love the Sin: Sexual Regulation and the Limits of Religious Tolerance by Jakobsen & Pellegrini

Read for the LGBT Challenge on Niji Feels. My other reading choices won’t be this academic, I promise! What we have here is a case of mistaken marketing. The title, Love the Sin, and the cover (which contains mild, painted nudity and is not shown) give the impression of an in-your-face anti-religious political book. I was…… Continue reading Review of Love the Sin: Sexual Regulation and the Limits of Religious Tolerance by Jakobsen & Pellegrini

2015 Book Challenges (LGBT+ and Romance)

We can take it as a given that I’ll read as many books as I can during any given year. I don’t worry about whether the number is higher or lower — I’m confident that I read what I wanted, when I wanted. However, I still love book challenges! They add a fun kind of…… Continue reading 2015 Book Challenges (LGBT+ and Romance)
