Default "Outed" at Read It Forward

I am excited that Read It Forward has recommended my Sappho translation for Pride Month: https://www.readitforward.com/essay/...uS47ponnR5ccg8

I am also honored to be identified there as a "queer writer," even though I am not so lucky.

Nice indeed. And I'm sure they'll de-queer you in a heartbeat if you let them know that you don't define yourself as such. Drop them a line at edit@readitforward.com

Thank you, John and Julie.

Thanks for the email address, Julie. I am inclined to let the verbiage stand. I mean, I have been a straight dude every day since the onset of puberty but who knows what tomorrow will bring?

That is a great shout-out to your work. Congratulations.

Out and About

Classical assical,
Aaron Poochigian's
Sappho translations might
Make him look gay.

Hes psyched. His love lifes been
Heterosexual
So far; in verse, though, he
Swings either way.
