This Book is Gay by James Dawson

So, in honor of QueerWorksFridays, I have a book rec for everyone!

I just finished This Book is Gay by James Dawson. It was WONDERFUL. It’s an overview of everything you need to know about being Queer with a dictionary and gay icons in the back.

Have questions about gay culture? What about activism? Intersectionality? Stereotypes? Slang? Sex?

It’s a great starting part for everyone. It gives you the basics on everything from to terms to flirting to sex. Dating Apps and clubs and community. It’s a book that would have made younger me feel so much better.

And it’s got stories from people of all ages!

The author recognizes he’s a white gay man and can’t speak on certain issues. He brings in a woman to talk about lesbian sex because why should women listen to a white man about lesbian sex?

Also, it has cute illustrations and gives it to you like a best friend would. It’s not patronizing or childish. It’s real and blunt, but there’s a sense of humor that you need when you talk about the shit that’s part of you. It talks about how to use (and not use) labels. How hard it is, and how to come out (or not come out depending on your situation).

So have a great day and read the book that every kid should read, queer or not.

so hey i try not to put irl stuff on here BUT: i finally went and bought a wheelchair. which i really, really need. so i can do stuff like go to museums, and cons, and travel, and like. go to parties! etc! i cant stand for more than five minutes or so without pretty intense pain and its been getting worse lately and insurance wont do shit for me because i can walk fine, but standing? ha ha, get fucked

anyway, so im doing a gofundme to help pay for it, because i am very poor, and my husband just got laid off, and i work as a fucking assistant to adjunct faculty so i get paid (sound of crickets chirping and dust falling). if you have some money to spare, i would really, really appreciate help! or if not, just spreading the word!

for anybody who donates $20+, i will write you something (short! sweet! probably bad!). for anybody who donates $50+ i will HANDWRTE you something and MAIL IT TO YOU.

[Image description: A short digital comic in shades of grey and pale pink. It reads “For the first time I can remember, I feel… wanted… perfect… normal.” Above each of the adjectives is an image of a person with short hair in a suit, dancing with a series of other people. At the bottom of the page it says “I feel like dancing” above three image images of the person’s face. End image description]
