Beau my God

22-07-2022 • 1 hr 4 mins

Host Beau Bradley (he/they) welcomes back guest Marty Noel Chenyao (he/him) for his third appearance on BMG, to discuss topics like Transgender health care and considerations post Roe v Wade being overturned by the U.S. Supreme Court, current transgender representation in literature, Marty's collection of both writing and photography that can be found on his website www.theantisocialite.com, and much more!

The familiar duo chat candidly back and forth about their feelings in today's current world, it's implications on BIPoC and Queer/Trans folks, and then truly dig into queer literature, specifically chatting about nonbinary characters, gender representation, how most stories play to cisgender-heterosexual readers, and how to approach pronouns in a non-cringe way while writing. Marty shares how he crafts his stories, why homophobia and transphobia don't exist in his fiction, and what those conversations look like amongst queer authors and writers.
