Welcome to my blog, A Queer and Some Books!

I’m Parker, your local genderfluid queer pal. My pronouns vary from she/her, he/him, and they/them at different times since I am . . . Genderfluid. If you’re not sure what my pronouns are that day it’s best to go with they/them.

I love writing. It’s the easiest form of communication for me. I find that when I write it helps me make sense of what I’m feeling and thinking. I hope to share some of that with you all on here. Of course what I write about will vary from short stories to just my feelings I’m going through that day or week or month.

This is also a space for me to geek out about books. I hope to boost queer books on here! I initially started this blog to help me find new queer books and really connect with that part of myself to get more comfortable with truly being me. But I’ll also be talking about non-queer books. I will also be using this space as a place for me to just have fun geeking out about books in different ways.

I hope you enjoy your time on my blog!

Best wishes,
