Ever wondered who Polidori wrote "The Vampyre" about? Have you ever noticed LGBTQ+ coding (positive or negative) in your favorite science fiction, fantasy, and horror stories? What do the past and future look like for LGBTQ+ genre writers? We talk about it with author & publisher at Queen of Swords Press, Catherine Lundoff. There's a LOT to unpack here, but we got a good start! Might need a part 2 on this one... or part 3... check the notes below for contact info & links to Catherine Lundoff's excellent articles on the history of LGBTQ+ speculative fiction.
