Guest Post: Writing Comics with Cait

This is the last of our celebratory guest posts – but not the least! We figured five is a very nice number & were super lucky to get five amazing people to write for us. Today’s post is by Lou. We’ve met on book twitter, which seems to bee the place to meet interesting & talented people, doesn’t it. She’s an aspiring author and believe me, y’all really want her to land a book deal! Meanwhile, you can read a webcomic she cowrites with an illustrator friend. Or follow her on twitter.

Guest Post: Found Family and LGBT in the Periphery

Charlotte lowkey makes fun of me for this, but if she let me, I probably would turn this blog into a shrine for Kayla. I’m just a big fan of her work, okay guys? And not without reasons, because everything she already published is amazing.

Anyway, I guess it comes as no surprise then that I asked her to write something for Reads Rainbow’s anniversary. And if you’ve read either of her books, you know that found family is a bit of a signature trope for her. So enjoy!

You can follow Kayla Ancrum on twitter (and you should, because she’s hilarious) & read our interview with her for some more content!

Guest Post: Expanding the Possibilities of Fantasy: LGBTQ Representation in Malinda Lo’s Books

Today I’m very excited to host another dear friend on our blog! I’ve known Amrita for about four years and can honestly tell she’s one of the most talented writers & poets I have ever met. So you can imagine how happy I was when she agreed to write about something close to her heart.

You can find some of Amrita’s writing here or just go ahead and follow her on twitter.

Guest Post: The Many Coming Outs of Gabriela Martins

We’re here two days after our blog anniversary with another guest post & we’re hoping you are all still in the mood to celebrate with us.

Today, we have an essay by Gabriela Martins. I met her around a year ago, I think, thanks to the book twitter community & being friends with her has been amazing. That’s why I was thrilled when she agreed to writing something for our blog!

You can follow Gabhi on twitter @ gabhimartins or visit her writer’s website:

And hey, we actually interviewed her a few weeks back!

Guest Post: I’m Bi so I’m Greedy (For More)

Exactly one year ago today, we started this blog. (Yeah, the time’s flown by for us as well!) And because it’s our first blogiversary, we wanted to do a little thing to celebrate that. So, for the next ten days or so, we’re hosting a series of guest bloggers, to talk about whatever topic they choose (LGBT-related, obviously), and then finishing up with a post by us, as an extra thank you for all the support you’ve shown us.

(Because, in case it wasn’t clear, we wouldn’t be doing this without that support.)

Our first guest is Shri, who blogs over at sunandchai (go follow if you don’t already!) and is on twitter @sunandchai.
