The reading list/newsletter for March is available here.
I create this list every month for my patrons as part of their perks. I am trying to make a living out of my writing and patrons help me do that. To get access to this list, you need to be on the $10 a month tier.
If you can’t afford that, don’t worry, I got you. You still get access to the previous month’s list when I release a new one. For this, you only only need to be signed on the $1 a month tier. You would also get access to patron-only posts. It’s a pretty sweet deal. In fact, you can read February’s list here. It’s unlocked and everything. Just so you know what you’re signing up for.
On this month’s list:
- Akwaeke’s Emezi’s brilliant article on gender dysphoria and their surgeries.
- Elezabeth Bergstom on queerness and stealing intimate moments in churches and other sanctuaries.
- Monica Lewinsky on why she took part in the Clinton documentaries.
- What does it mean when a literary magazine includes a short story that at the very least, implies that pedophiles belong to the LGBTQIQ+ community in an inclusivity issue? An essay that gives the sociohistorical context of this.
- An essay on the significance of Mani Ratnam’s films to the women of the Sri Lankan war.
- Ivy Nyaieka has run out of ways to tell Nairobi men she doesn’t love them.
- An essay on watching Rafiki and sapphic love.
- A short story about a love falling in love with a girl and another one about a woman quite literary losing her head because of love.
- A few Twitter threads on bisexuality, sex work and (why the distinction with) pornography.
Sign up. Happy reading!
Of course, if you can’t sign up, just sharing/retweeting goes a long way. Please do that. And feel free to reach out if you have any questions/problems signing up.
