Point of View: What lesfic has meant to me

The first LGBTQIA+ book I read wasn’t gay literature or MM romance.

That might come as a surprise to people. Most of my books thus far have had relationships between men (and occasionally between men and nonbinary folks). My publishing career started with a book that included a romance between two men.

MM Romance and other gay fiction are pretty prominent in LGBTQIA+ publishing. One might assume the reason I wrote my first novel was an extensive history of reading and writing about men.

One would be wrong.

All of my firsts have been books about...

Visi-BI-lity: You are seen

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...

Let It B

There's been some furor (and some confusion) over the recent 4Chan-initiated "drop the B" fake campaign. While this particular time there isn't a real initiative to eliminate bisexual from the LGBTQIA+ lexicon, it's evoked a lot of feelings.

It would be easy to laugh it off and dismiss it as right-wing trolls being their usual haterly selves if it weren't for some hard reality. The truth is, that campaign was borrowed from the actual experiences of bisexual people.

The fake campaign rested on the premise that bisexuality is inherently...

A.M. Leibowitz Highlights Bisexual Erasure in Article

Over at Bitopia, author A. M. Leibowitz discusses bisexual erasure and classification issues for bisexual charactesrs in straight or gay works.

If I want to read queer lit, I want to know it fits in that category, even if it’s space cowboy or urban fantasy or dystopian futuristic or sweet romance. My issue, though, is all the people being rendered invisible by categorizing something based on which two people are in a relationship. Bi erasure happens when we label books as “gay” or “lesbian.” Those are identities, not romantic pairing labels. A bisexual man is not automatically gay because he’s...
