Bibrary Gender Identity and Expression Challenge: The Enchantments of Flesh and Spirit by Storm Constantine
The Enchantments of Flesh and Spirit by Storm Constantine
Vampiric homoeroticism with a David Bowie aesthetic: welcome to the world of Wraeththu.
The Challenge: read five books in any five categories that deal positively with gender identity and expression.
I originally signed up for this challenge with my old gender blog, Mercury’s Moon, but that was before I created this one. I haven’t decided yet whether to cross-post the entries or just put them here. In any case, I’ll repeat what I wrote there when asked to explain why I was participating in the challenge: Books that focus positively on trans or alternative gender characters and/or subjects are not widely publicized. If we’re interested in the subject matter, if it’s important to us, it’s up to us to seek out those books and promote them ourselves. Because they ARE out there.
In fact, I just got done reading one of them.
