What is this stuff?
Queer People Doing Stuff was born in Alex’s head one day when she was trying desperately to find an original lesbian story. Books about lesbians are rare enough, but it’s next to impossible to find books about lesbians who aren’t just coming out/having crazy sex.
A wise guy once said we should be the change we wish to see in the world, so Alex and some sympathetic friends got together and started writing stories of their own, stories with queer main characters from all walks of life. Some were heroes, some were villains, and others were just normal people, but they all had a lot more going on in their lives than just what their genitals looked like and where they wanted to stick them.
It was great, but the stories couldn’t do much good without a way for other to read them. Then one day Alex and Owen got together and started talking about a blog. A blog could be a great host for stories! And why stop there? Why not show REAL queer people too? Queer people doing what everyone does best: Stuff!
Right now Queer People Doing Stuff is still fairly small, but we have hopes to constantly make it bigger and better. Why? Because the straight world needs to see a greater slice of the overall humanity that makes up being any person, even if that person is ‘different’ in some way. But what’s even more important is that we get to all see ourselves and the beautiful, rich diversity our lives have. Please, send in a picture or a story or whatever you want to help expand our spiffy little collage even further!
