“What are you trying to protect heterosexual marriages from? There isn’t a limited amount of love in Iowa. It isn’t a non-renewable resource. If Amy and Barbara or Mike and Steve love each other, it doesn’t mean that John and Mary can’t.”—~Ed Fallon
What's your reasoning behind starting this blog? It's quite intriguing.
I’ve always been a huge history nerd so the history behind any community or event intrigues me.
Also when I came out I buried myself in every text imaginable. I was so unsure of my sexuality that I literally looked to everything to try to find an answer. If the text was fiction or nonfiction, it didn’t matter. I wanted something to relate to — some “family” that I felt was my own in a way I hadn’t experienced yet.
Now, years later, I am still as intrigued by queer history and I still read everything I get my hands on.
I’m currently working on my MFA and I want my thesis to center around the LGBT community. This tumblr, a youtube channel and a wordpress site are going to be my way of keeping track of information as well as forcing myself to stay active and continue research.
