Literary Magpie Celebrates 100 Posts and Much Much More!
I primarily intended this blog to showcase interviews with queer authors and book reviews, but as time went on it came to include news, guest bloggers and a lot of personal commentary. One thing that I have not done is showcase my own poems directly. This will be the case as long as the blog continues.
That said, I was disappointed that the video piece "A Fire in My Belly" by David Wojnarowicz had not been put back on display. You can view it here:
Included in the show was a video from 1971 called "Pink Narcissus," which everyone I spoke to about it had seen. How was I not aware of this video's existence? I watched about half of the video while at the Portrait Gallery. It has inspired me to begin working on a new project in addition to my own poems and Literary Magpie. I will keep you posted. If you want a sugary, glittery taste of uber-gay goodness, check out this: NSFW
Coming up in the near future are some exciting new authors I "discovered" at AWP, some queer literary magazines that you will want to read and support and more interviews with LGBTQ authors, editors and publishers.
Here is to 100 more posts and especially to YOU for all of your support! Keep reading!!!!
