Take a journey through time and genres and discover a past where queer figures live, love and shape the world around them. Seventeen of the best young adult authors across the queer spectrum have come together to create a collection of beautifully written diverse historical fiction for teens. From a retelling of Little Red Riding Hood set in war-torn s Mexico featuring a transgender soldier, to two girls falling in love while mourning the death of Kurt Cobain, forbidden love in a sixteenth-century Spanish convent Gay pirate stories an asexual girl discovering her identity amid the s roller-disco scene, All Out tells a diverse range of stories across cultures, time periods and identities, shedding light on an area of history often ignored or forgotten.
But along the way, my imagining of La Carambada wandered, as my stories often do, into the realm of fairy tale. The Wolf emerged as a transgender French soldier who garners his own fierce reputation. The forbidding woods became the hills of Mexico in the s, a country in the aftermath of a brutal war. Natalie C. I am a life-long fan of pirate stories, historical and fictional. As a kid, I believed that the only people who became pirates were boys and men. When I finally discovered that girls and women were also a part of the historical narrative Anne Bonny!
Madame Cheng! They are there, but those who land in the adventure tend to find themselves sidetracked to the adventures of boys and are rarely queer in any way. I wanted to explore the origin story of two girls breaking away from the expectations of others and striking out on their own. Romance and sex always made me a little uncomfortable, not just in practice, but in theory.
I ran from declarations of love and admiration from friends. I scrunched my face and turned away when the guy got the girl in movies. It was a chance for me to imagine different choices than the ones I made in my youth. My family is from the Netherlands—my dad grew up in a Dutch farming community in Iowa, my last name which is not Lee is very long and starts with a Van, and I have a fondness for all poetry from Delft. When this anthology invitation came my way, I was about to go to Amsterdam to research a different writing project. While there, my already-existing fascination with Dutch art from the Golden Age became an obsession.
I wanted to know all about painting, why these paintings existed, what it took to become a master painter and the commodification surrounding art and masterpieces. Art that, in its day was considered commercial trash is now hanging in galleries people from all over the world visit. One of my favorite things to do in my writing is take the Gay pirate stories of historical or genre narratives and give them to queer characters.
Although I was aware of my attraction toward other boys, I had no positive words to put to those intimate feelings—only negative slurs. People rarely spoke openly or honestly about sex. Homosexuality was considered a mental disorder.Gay pirate stories
