I’m sure many of you have by now read about the latest foolishness from an f/sf bigot who I won’t bother to name here; no point feeding the trolls. But if you find righteous anger invigorating, and are curious about the artistic merits of very poor rewrites of Shakespeare, complete with ‘gay’ being a signifier for ‘evil’, then go read this review. Then go buy a big queer book to counterbalance the money no doubt pouring into the bigot’s coffers. (And the coffers of the publisher who should have known better.) Any queer book will do.
[ETA: Subterranean Press, the publisher, has a statement here. They’re asking for responses via email. I hope people do respond. I hope people respond civilly. SubP has published many good works with queer content. This mistake doesn’t make them evil, just, you know, mistaken.]
Or you could just watching this nifty advert. We’ve, ah, come a long way, baby…

Wow! Where is that advertisement playing? Cable, internet? What a positive addition to this rainy Boulder day. Thanks!
Ellen, I found it on Autostraddle last week. No idea where it's airing.
Well, I hadn't heard until now. . . I sent off a very civil email (no cursing!) and posted it on my LJ so hopefully my (few) friends do the same; now I'm off to buy something fun. ;)
Yay for the ad!
Phoenix, enjoy your big queer book!
Well, I was planning on getting some more Jane Fletcher books anyway. I've also got “With Her Body” on my list as well.
As for that add, I would love to see it actually air. I imagine that it probably only comes on LOGO.
transceptor, I've only ever read one Jane Fletcher book. I enjoyed it. Have fun.
