Hi everyone! 

If you're familiar with my stuff on Twitter, you know what kind of work I do: a queer scholar, analyzing and remixing pop culture, politics, and literature. I want to tell and magnify queer stories that carve out space for us in genres and belief systems that have sought to push us out. Funding my work will help me transition into longer form pieces that aren't reliant on turnaround for-hire pay.

I finally have my PhD, but academia is a walled garden, and I want to tell stories that actually matter and can impact people and communities beyond it. That's where (I hope!) you come in. 

A graphic novel and a novel are ready to go. We've got the publishing interest, the editorial mechanism, and the stories - now we just need the work.

If you like what I do and just want to help out, thanks so much!

UPDATE: GOAL MET - PODCAST IS A GO! 

If we hit the target goal of $666 a month (UPDATE: HIT!), we will also be launching THE DEVIL'S PARTY project. All donors can now follow along in my readings of Milton's PARADISE LOST (a key source text for my next few projects) and for $3 a month, a companion mini-podcast, in which I'll be walking listeners through a book-club style reading of the poem, meant to help first-timers and experts alike in catching the weird magic of this important and influential text!

If you're new to Patreon, don't worry - new subscribers get access to all the previous episodes at that level, so you can catch up from the beginning at your leisure!

Thanks so much for your support! Be brave enough to be kind.
