The visibility of LGBTQ people, and especially LGBTQ writers, is very important. As writers we get to tell stories that can let people know they are not alone. Over at Luna Luna Magazine is my essay “Truth or Dare: On Visibility”. It’s about growing up queer in the Midwest in the early nineties and why I think the visibility of LGBTQ writers and educators is vital.
This essay is part of a LGBTQ visibility project where editor, Ruben Quesada is looking “to feature LGBTQ histories of the past, present, and future.” I’m happy to have had the chance to tell my story. Now, I encourage you to tell yours.
