Visi-BI-lity: You are seen

Amy Leibowitz a m leibowitz awareness bisexual fiction bisexual novels bisexual visibility day bisexuality bisexuals

It’s Bisexual Visibility Day, and I’m here to talk about what that means in the context of books and writing.

A conversation with a colleague prompted me to think more about this question: Why don’t we see more books with bisexual protagonists in different-gender relationships? Not merely a passing mention or objectification, but bisexual people being visibly, proudly queer within the context of having a partner of another gender.

The answer to this is complex, and I’m not going to attempt to explain every part in detail. I will say that...

Ship Wrecked

Amy Leibowitz culture fan fiction media television

If you’re anything like me, you might be a fan of things that are quirky, weird, and funny, with a healthy dose of fantasy. That’s a big part of what interests me about television like Netflix’s Stranger Things and Amazon’s Good Omens. (And the book too, for the latter.) Despite some problematic elements, and the ongoing issues with the author, it’s also why I loved Harry Potter.

And if you’re like me, you might also take an interest in what fans and fan communities are saying about those shows (or books). Which means...

Can we use singular “they”?

Amy Leibowitz editing grammar writing writing advice

Ah, the ever-present debate: Is singular they/them grammatically acceptable?

Short answer: Yes.

And now for the longer answer.
