Starting off my morning with a queer read, this one by queer Native writer Joshua Whitehead. It is also SNOWY outside. V rude, NYS.

What queer books are you reading right now? What books by authors of color are you reading right now?

SkeletonKey Quite sad that our library doesn‘t have this 😢 3mo
queerbookreader @SkeletonKey Mine has this one but not his first book 😭 3mo

Reading and watching the American Rescue Dog Show 🐶😍✨ have a good night, littens!

saguarosally I‘m curious as to what constitutes a disaster capitalist. 4mo
queerbookreader @saguarosally from what I've gathered so far it's companies and extremely wealthy people who take advantage of an area & its people after a devastating event. For the sake of profiting off of a disaster and exploiting the economic "opportunities" that might open up for privatization and development that might otherwise have been opposed 4mo
queerbookreader @saguarosally in this context it's about a massive post-Maria attempt to completely privatize the utilities and other public institutions of Puerto Rico, and to sell off vast amounts of the island to various businesses and wealthy individuals who seek to both develop Puerto Rico into an island for the super rich to vacation, and to exploit the island's wildly low corporate tax rate. 4mo

saguarosally @queerbookreader @weaponxgirl Thank you for the insight. I was just thinking that after a disaster people have to go in and clean up, and you have to pay them. This sounds a good bit more pernicious. 4mo

Hi guys. That the Supreme Court upheld his trans military ban has made me feel super ick and barfy. So I'm reading a good graphic novel and trying not to spiral into thinking about how this approval will trigger even more legal trans and genderqueer discrimination & exclusion. 😞

What graphic novel and/or comic are you reading right now? Have any recommendations?

Graphic novel that tells the story of a trans woman going through her first year of transitioning. It's kind of a Trans 101 for cis audiences, shown through the character's perspective to empathize and humanize trans & gnc people's experiences, thoughts, and fears. I liked it!

Current read. Collection of writings by 14 Latinx queer activists that chronicles the history of LGBT+ Latinx activism from the 70s-90s. Key points emphasized so far include the need to abolish the invisibility caused by the binary black/white racial narrative so common in US activism, and the need to create queer Latina/o spaces due to exclusion from mainstream Latinx circles & white gay circles.

Underwhelmed. Idk. OGNs are supposed to have longer in-depth narratives, but this story seems shorter and simpler than story arcs in the series--how is that possible?? And I can't tell if the writing is underwhelming or if it's how the letterer presented it; things are exciting!!!! Loud!! Fun!! In the comic, but this was lots of statements with periods. Bland art. Maybe this book is a whole different mood on purpose?

Molly/Mal were CUUUUUUUTE THO

queerbookreader Recommendation: try it and see how you like it. This OGN is presented a lot differently than the comic series. You might like it, you might not. Lumberjanes is a queer comic that is Boom! BOX's best selling series and shatters the treatment of queer content as being Adult, NSFW, inappropriate, etc because it is truly for all ages. I will always love & support Lumberjanes for the path it has paved (even if I'm not a big fan of this storyline 😉) 6mo

Been hype about this for months and had this on hold for weeks and.......it's so teeny? I'm a little underwhelmed? The book itself is super small and super thin and the last fifth of the book is just a reprint of issue 1 and....ya. I'm gonna read it and I'm gonna try really hard to love it but those are my initial thoughts--did anyone else think this too?

Also, just got a BUNCH of new followers outta nowhere 👀 idk why but hey folks 👋🏼

Smangela 138 is incredibly impressive. My crazy stat is that I had The Year of the Flood by Margaret Atwood renewed 20 times and had to go in to the circulation desk to have them check it in and check it back out for me. EMBARRASSING. 😂😂😂 7mo

Stunning photo book by and about, and I quote, "masculine dykes" who ID as butch. It's mostly photos; I wish there were more interviews, but for what it has, I'm totally happy. There's still a strong strong stereotype about who and what butches are, so the author wanted to highlight some of those who are butch so they could show what being butch means to them. Even featured some butch trans dykes which makes me thrilled ??

Mehso-so

Hmmmmm.

I can't figure out the intended audience. The 1st part seems like a "queer identities 101" for cis folks, but then the 2nd part is a "how to relationship" guide that is super general. And then the last part is "coming out 101" and seems more directed towards queer folks! I'm confused!!!

The identities covered include trans, nonbinary, and asexuality (not complaining, but also very confused. Why is asexuality mushed in w gender ID?) ⬇️

queerbookreader I think it includes asexuality, which is a sexual orientation, in a book that is mainly about gender identity because it is a queer identity--which is part of the title, lmao--and also is rarely given attention or respect & is super misunderstood. However, it got so in depth for an entire chapter about asexual identities but lumped trans & non-binary identities together into 1 chapter that I think it could've done better in a separate book 7mo
queerbookreader And I guess in a book that is mostly about gender identity, i would expect more in depth info about non-binary identities. I got one (1) example of a non-binary identity in the enby section of the identity chapter, but at least 6 examples of ace identity in the asexuality chapter, and I guess.......gender identity could have been better covered. 7mo
queerbookreader It's not inaccurate in what the book says, so I'm not like "don't read this garbage!!!!" Not at all, but. It could have spent more time covering the actual queer identities (and more in depth about non-binary) and maybe not three entire chapters about a general, could apply to anyone, "how to do relationships" 7mo

Unsurprising. I've always been gryffindor with ravenclaw a super close second. I'm this weird and frustrating combination of "let's really sit and think about all our options before we say or do anything" while simultaneously "I WILL FIGHT ANYONE WHO DARES RIGHT HERE RIGHT NOW LETS GO I WILL END YOUR WILL TO LIVE"

there is always a massive internal struggle going on inside my head: to throw down, or to think before acting. ?

Anyone else have a thing for book adaptations of tv shows? I loooooove the CSI novelizations. They aren't nearly as stressful as the actual tv show 😅 I used to love the show when I was 12-14 ish but then my anxiety disorder developed and now I can only watch cartoons and nature tv shows without flipping out. The books, however, are wonderful!!

hlgreenfield Omg I am not alone. I had a phase in my life where I was sooo obsessed and I read all the books. They were pretty decent crime novels.although there are probably a ton of new ones since! 7mo
queerbookreader @hlgreenfield They also made a couple CSI comics but I forget who published them (dark horse?? Maybe?? Idk) and I've managed to get my hands on three of them but not the others 😭😭 one was wild it was about this Jack the Ripper poser and they had to go to a ripper con and omg 7mo
hlgreenfield I only had one of the comics. I think it may have been dark horse, can't remember for sure. They were really enjoyable! 7mo
