Queer fam, please read this request for stories. Let’s make sure we’re well represented! 🏳️🌈
At the end of 2018, I was out to dinner with my friends and we went around the table and we each said the projects we wanted to do in the coming year, our goals. I told them about the project I have been wanting to do for years, that I’ve been too scared to attempt, that seemed too hard, but that I thought the world needed especially right now. And somebody said, “the fact that it frightens you, means you definitely should do it.” Everyone nodded along. I thought about it a long time, I wavered back and forth, and finally I made a decision. This was the year I was going to do it. I’m going to take a big risk.
I’m trying to make the most inclusive book about sex for everyone, by everyone. It’s (probably) even going to be called Sex with Every Body, (by Everybody.) It will be published by @littlebrown
in 2020. It will include YOUR STORIES printed anonymously, and essays by experts and professionals, interviews with people who have had unique experiences, and so much art and illustration and comics. It will be thick, and it will be beautiful. BUT I NEED YOUR HELP! I really want to get anonymous stories about everything- first times, heartbreak, coming out, going through transitions, fetishes, funny stories, silly stories and sad stories. Even boring stories are great. 600 words or less. Not too much of your time. Just fifteen minutes to submit so that someone out there reads it and feels less alone. I cherished Our Bodies Ourselves when I was a teenager and those short first person accounts. I imagine a book of these would not only be entertaining to read, but more importantly, so helpful to others.
Will you please submit a story? And ask your friends to as well? Please spread the word however possible- a repost, a mention, a whisper. I will forever be grateful and I think so will everybody else. www.sexwitheverybody.com for submissions and info. Link in profile. Thank you so much. So much love for your support. PS. f you want your art, comics, etc to be considered for the book, email me. Or if you have a longer more important story to tell.
