Bi and LGBTQ Representation in Some Scary Stories

Representation Matters!! Literally everyone wants some sort of representation of themselves in their media consumption. Even if it’s a little here and there, it helps. A lot of people take it for granted because they are represented ALL OVER THE DAMNED PLACE. To see ourselves (LGBTQ) represented, accurate and fair, shows that we are validated … Continue reading Bi and LGBTQ Representation in Some...

Representation Matters!!

Literally everyone wants some sort of representation of themselves in their media consumption. Even if it’s a little here and there, it helps. A lot of people take it for granted because they are represented ALL OVER THE DAMNED PLACE. To see ourselves (LGBTQ) represented, accurate and fair, shows that we are validated and we exist.

Right now representation is improving. Regardless the format, there are big strides to show something other than straight, white, and overall male-centric.  This is good. We need this and more of it. Another thing we need is normalization. With representation comes normalization, to an extent, because people just get used to it after awhile. Normalization is where you just get so used to something it’s no big deal and you’re not sure what the big fuss was about in the first place. (i.e. normal)

‘Some Scary Stories’ is about normalization more than anything. I’m not fighting for representation in each story. In fact, a couple of stories barely mention orientation. But it’s there and not a big deal. It’s presented and then the story moves on. And remember this is horror, so we’re not bring it up with romance either. Sure romance is a great way to get the point across that someone is queer, but let’s face it, we’re queer even if we’re not a-romancin’. Sometimes we’re scared shitless from ghosts and trying not to get eaten by monsters. In this collection, that was my goal; we’re here, we’re queer, and we’re not worried about being here or queer because creepy stuff is going down.

My goal has always been more than acceptance. I’m bisexual and I don’t want you to give a shit about it. I’m fighting for apathy! My theory is: if it’s seen as something normal and mundane so no one is going to care and they’ll use their time and energy for real issues. A person fighting for acceptance by simply being who they are is a stupid fucking thing to have to fight for. Yet here we are. If someone thinks I’m straight, and they perceive it as ‘normal’, they’re probably not going to care. They learn I’m Bi, then a whole gamut of emotions and reactions could come my way.  I want the same reaction to my deceleration of my queerness to be the same as telling them I just bought a blue toothbrush: apathetic and annoyed I’m wasting their time with innocuous facts about myself.

What can I say, I dream big.

That’s how I approached the whole idea for this collection, and now you know. So come for the strong Bi representation (but mainly overall LGBTQ normalization), and stay for the creepy, scary stuff.

Some Scary Stories-ly yours,
Your Weird Uncle Mick
