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 don’t think all this month’s posts will be book-related, but hey, they might be. I thought I’d start us off with a list of book recommendations, including fiction, nonfiction, and comics. I tried…… Continue reading 10 Book Recommendations for GLBT Book Month (#queerpop)

What’s Up with Gender on Lip Sync Battle? (#queerpop)

Lip Sync Battle is a comedy/singing-competition show based on a Tonight Show segment. It shouldn’t work as its own show, but it does — two celebrities face off against each other in two lip-sync rounds, one no-frills song each in the first round, followed by a round of all-out costumes-and-backup-dancers productions. The audience decides the winner, based on a super-scientific…… Continue reading What’s Up with Gender on Lip Sync Battle? (#queerpop)

I Don’t Care About NBC’s Constantine (#queerpop)

I had thought to start #queerpop with a post on why representation matters, something “intro”-y like that… But there are so many timely topics to post about that for the moment, my assumption is that you know why representation matters. So let’s jump right in to the pop culture discussion! John Constantine is a DC…… Continue reading I Don’t Care About NBC’s Constantine (#queerpop)

Sunday Post – Caffeinated #Queerpop Edition

If we were having coffee, I’d be pretty excited about it. 😀 I’m mostly limiting caffeinated coffee to writing sessions at the moment, but in virtual coffee time, I can be as hopped up as I want and it won’t hurt a thing later on! Biggest excitement: #queerpop starts on Tuesday. It’s a weekly series…… Continue reading Sunday Post – Caffeinated #Queerpop Edition

A to Z Reflection (and an announcement!)

Pinned until after the reflections week! FYI, I was the “LGBT+ Comics Characters” theme. So, that was fun! I missed out on the A to Z Challenge last year because April means finals, but I knew I wanted to do it this year, and it was just as good as I thought it’d be. I didn’t…… Continue reading A to Z Reflection (and an announcement!)

Author Hunter Murphy on Gay Southern Characters

Three weeks ago, I reviewed the new book Imogene in New Orleans by Hunter Murphy — a cozy mystery about Jackson Miller, his partner Billy, and Billy’s mother Imogene. I don’t see a lot of Southern fiction with gay characters, let alone central characters in relationships, so I was more than thrilled when Hunter agreed to write…… Continue reading Author Hunter Murphy on Gay Southern Characters
