Compiled by Faith Beauchemin, How Queer! is a curated collection of fourteen autobiographical essays from ordinary bisexual, pansexual, and sexually fluid people.
Intertwined with commentary from Beauchemin, join these narratives as they tackle all too common themes in the LGBTQ community such as activism, homophobia, religious bias, non-monosexual visibility, and constant double-edged experiences.
How Queer! collects fourteen different autobiographical essays not from sociologists or professional activists, but rather by ordinary bisexual, pansexual, and sexually-fluid folks. These authors come from a range of backgrounds, while their personal narratives explore similar overarching themes. Some of these themes include non-monosexual visibility, activism, confrontation with homophobia and religious bias, as well as endlessly double-edged experiences in the LGBTQ community.
This collection of stories can bring a sense of understanding to anyone wanting to learn more about gender and sexual identity. Whether to aid in defining their own journey, to increase their awareness, or to build solidarity with with one another, How Queer! can come in handy in a personal collection.
Faith Beauchemin offers her personal commentary in a series of reflective essays, which place the writers’ experiences in the context of broader movements for radical social change. Beauchemin argues that a trend of bisexual erasure in LGBTQ activism is all too prevalent, and it functions to serve not the interest of the community, but of patriarchy, sexism, as well as homophobia.
Contrasting the trend of erasure, the narratives brought together in How Queer! subvert oppressive hierarchies. They highlight the perspectives and revolutionary potential of folks who refuse to neatly fit into narrow categories of sexual identity that are constantly being imposed on them.
Paperback, 128 pages.
Faith Beauchemin is a writer, activist, blogger, and independent feminist scholar from Detroit, Michigan, currently living in Anniston, Alabama.

How do we make social justice the most pleasurable human experience? How can we awaken within ourselves desires that make it impossible to settle for anything less than a fulfilling life?
Author and editor adrienne maree brown finds the answer in something she calls “pleasure activism,” a politics of healing and happiness that explodes the dour myth that changing the world is just another form of work.
Drawing on the black feminist tradition, she challenges us to rethink the ground rules of activism. Her mindset-altering essays are interwoven with conversations and insights from other feminist thinkers, including Audre Lorde, Joan Morgan, Cara Page, Sonya Renee Taylor, and Alexis Pauline Gumbs.
Together they cover a wide array of subjects—from sex work to climate change, from race and gender to sex and drugs—building new narratives about how politics can feel good and how what feels good always has a complex politics of its own.
