Here they are: First Kisses and Other Misfortunes by Kimberly Karalius The Darkest Part of the Forest by... Continue Reading →

5 books that helped me learn about LGBT issues

I am far from an expert on LGBT issues, but I've been trying for a few years to educate myself. As a feminist, I strive to be intersectional, though I know that I fail and fall into my privileges sometimes. Though I know how important marriage equality is, there are still many more problems that... Continue Reading →

Redefining Realness: My Path to Womanhood, Identity, Love & So Much More by Janet Mock

Review: I love this book. I love everything about it. I love that during her low points, Mock reminds the reader that these moments are not unique to her story but neither is every part of her story is a part of every trans story. She went through some terrible and trying times, but she... Continue Reading →

Tell Me Again How a Crush Should Feel by Sara Farizan

Review:   Tell Me Again How a Crush Should Feel is one of those rare YA books that is delightfully high school. The story is told from the first person POV of Leila so all the other characters only develop as far as her relationship with them does. And there is some development for most of...

These are just the heroes that we are accustomed to, the stories we've heard, and the heroes we've followed for a long time. But... Continue Reading →

Suggested Reading for New Intersectional Feminists

After spending some time with a fellow feminist friend of mine, I realized that I needed to put together a beginners list. Okay, she asked for one and I wanted it to share it with everyone. This is not a comprehensive list, but it's as intersectional as I can provide. There is a serious lack... Continue Reading →

LGBT Pride Month

                 Both Wikipedia and Transgender History give a complete history of why it is that June is the LGBT Pride Month. In a nutshell, events were originally put together to commemorate the Stonewall riots but it eventually grew into what is now LGBT Pride Month, or more colloquially known as Gay Pride Month. Personally, I prefer the acronym... Continue Reading →

The Argonauts by Maggie Nelson

Review: Personally, I loved the rambling style of the book. At first, it was a little annoying. I was never sure if she was talking to me as the reader directly, if she was talking to her partner, herself, or just the world in general the way any other nonfiction writer might. I was never...
