The STARs of Pride

Lauren Bell history Pride pride month Stonewall

This week starting tomorrow marks the 53rd anniversary of what many regard as the catalyst for the LGBTQ+ rights movement: the Stonewall Rebellion (also known as the Stonewall Uprising). You may have heard the name before, particularly a few years back when the park outside the bar became the first national monument dedicated to LGBTQ+ rights and history in the summer of 2016. For those who are perhaps unfamiliar with the events of June 28 - July 3, 1969, here is a brief summary: The Stonewall Inn, a gay bar located in NYC’s Greenwich Village, was raided by...

Saying Goodbye

Amy Leibowitz

For the last few years, I’ve had the pleasure of writing for this blog. I’ve highlighted some of the wonderful books by our authors. The fun in that is both getting to read a wide range of great books as well as pointing to my colleagues and (virtually) yelling about how awesome they are.

Not only have I interacted online with these fabulous folks, I’ve also met some in person and even interviewed them for my podcast. It’s been a wild and fun ride.

More thoughts on #OwnVoices

Amy Leibowitz own voices

Even though I’m usually pretty firmly on the side of primarily supporting writers engaging with their (our) own experiences, I readily concede that #OwnVoices is not equivalent to “better written.”
