As a member of the Outer Alliance, I advocate for queer speculative fiction and those who create, publish and support it, whatever their sexual orientation and gender identity. I make sure this is reflected in my actions and my work.
I hope I do, anyhow.
The idea is to provide a snippet of fiction, an inspiring biography, an anecdote, a personal story that relates to the theme of the Pride Day. I could, but I don’t have anything to say that someone else hasn’t already said better. Anyhow, what I write and read are the best and only things I can offer.
But I am ever ready with good laugh, since I find nothing bares the ridiculousness of society like a good solid flogging. This here clip is NSFW and/or those little pitchers with big ears, as it’s Lewis Black and he’s a fan of the f-bomb. It’s from his 2004 Red, White, and Screwed special, which I love. Hit about 2:10 for the pertinent points (and really good stuff), but the whole thing is fun too.
Another American Family, ruined.
Here’s to raising awareness, snuffing out ignorance, and making the world a better place for the people stuck with inheriting the thing from us.
