Who has the “right” to queer stories?

Amy Leibowitz books coming out current events links media news politics twitter writing YA literature

I’m a little late to the party on this, but I wanted to respond to the recent dust-up on social media involving some antagonistic, passive-aggressive tweets from Gaby Dunn directed at Becky Albertalli. There’s a lot to unpack here, so bear with me.

First of all, I do not agree with several of the things Dunn said in those tweets. No LGBTQIA+ person owes anyone a coming out. No one needs to be “comfy”...

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.
