So, I’ve been on a bit of seesaw with this book, but I’ve finally decided I’d give it one more go.
I’ve redesigned my cover, and will have the book edited at some point during 2016, then it will be re-published for the last time.
And it was about Caitlyn Jenner, like most of the population, it was about her recent comment to the lovely Ellen.
Of course, I have to state, I do not agree with her statement, and I think it’s terrible, but what interested me was my friends reaction which was ‘But she’s part of LGBT, she has to accept it’ and I thought, God I wish that was true.
I understand why she thought that, like, I do get it, but sometimes I feel it couldn’t be further than the truth if we tried.
Being asexual, I have witnessed this, other members of the LGBTQA+ community not accepting my sexuality as valid which really sucks, because I accept theirs, but unfortunately it doesn’t work like that. It intrigues, and I think saddens me at the same time, because how can someone who’s gone through being different and coming out, shun someone else for being different and coming out. It’s as hard for both people, whether they are gay, bisexual, trans*, asexual, pansexual, or whatever they may be.
We don’t need to be hating on each other, we need to be supporting, but I also think we’re a long way, away from that.
Allot of people always ask me why I tend to write more Gay Fiction than anything else and I don’t usually have a reply for them although usually it’s more because I don’t want to reply to them, it’s my choice – right? I can write what I want without people having ask why – right?
Recently I went to see the April Ashley exhibit in the Liverpool Museum and it was fascinating completely fascinating whilst I was there my dad asked me why I enjoyed learning about LGBT issues and LGBT culture and I had really nothing to reply, he then asked me if I had a point to get across when I write and I thought more into that.
I began writing Gay Fiction when I was fourteen, then I didn’t have a point to get across I was more just experimenting with writing different characters and different perspectives but as I’ve grown older and became thinking more in-depth about my writing.
My point is usually that you should feel good about yourself no matter what (I know very Disney Channel Original Movie) I like to write people conquering things or growing in confidence. Recently I’ve branched out and began writing different kind of people and I always find it interesting researching finding real peoples point of views, finding real peoples experiences and real events that have happened.
I’d like to also put forward that I don’t just write Gay Porn. If there’s a sex scene within my book there is usually a reason for it and sometimes it can be as simple as the characters love each other.
I decided to take some stats due to peoples presumptions.
Overall I found I had more straight characters within my books than Gay characters. Of course when you put it into a graph of the Gay Main Characters against Straight (Bisexual and Asexual) Main Characters
The numbers explain enough. But I will never stop writing Gay characters until I want to stop, I will continue to do what I want to without having to explain it to people.
