A Gay Science Fiction & Fantasy Magazine... "Crossed Genres: Issue 12"

Here's the amazing cover art image for the magazine
by Julie Dillon!

This just-released issue #12 of "Crossed Genres" has ten short Sci Fi and Fantasy stories, each featuring GLBTQ characters and themes. The issue also includes two articles, one of them by ME!

So go on, click on by. And check it out.

Happy reading!

"GLBTQ characters in Sci Fi and Fantasy books push the possibilities for Gay Teens – and for everyone else’s perceptions of what Gay people can do and be."

I love starting my day with articles that make me think. You've put together a great case on the value of books over movies and how they resonate more deeply with kids. Thanks Lee.

It's a great article, Lee.

Do you know the GLBT Fantasy Resources site? It's great for finding gay friendly science fiction.

I think I can understand how you feel because when I was growing up all protagonists were male so there was no room for me.

Absolutely lovely cover!

Hey, anyone/everyone: David Levithan is coming to Portland next week.

Is he as incredible in person as he is between a binding?

(Is he worth driving 4 hours for?)

This is a little ironic, because the only gay caracters I'd run across are in fantasy (okay, so I don't really read anything besides fantasy, but still).

Also, there is a prequel sereies to Battlestar Galactica called Caprica, and it features William's uncle Sam Adama, who is the most bada** hitman ever, and he has a husband named Larry. It makes me happy...
