I got so excited when I got it home that I started taking pictures. In hindsight, this was silly because the lighting was terrible, but you know what? I don’t care. You’re lookin’ at ’em!
I’m just squirming with glee over here to see this article in print, and to be part of such a fabulous publication! The rest of this issue looks amazing–I haven’t been able to sit down and read it yet, but there are articles on the invisibility of fat women’s sexuality (to which I’d refer people to my article, which includes quotes from many body-positive pornographers), the little-discussed realm of sexuality in online roleplaying games, and much more.
I’m also excited because–full disclosure–I have never been published in a printed magazine that wasn’t a “skin mag” before. Not that there’s anything wrong with “skin mags”–I did some fantastic writing for Juggs, y’all–but this feels so gratifying. (FYI, I did not make up that title, or the subtitle. I’m awful at naming things, but I don’t think I’d have named the article this way, myself.)
Anyway, look! There’s my name! And under it, the opening paragraph, in which I describe Cindy Gallop’s Black Apartment in glamorous detail.
A tempting little taste of what’s inside! This article is not available online, so I’m giving you a little snippet here. You can purchase it at newsstands, or online here!
Oh my god, that’s me in the middle there! Wahoo! (Photo by MPIS Photography, btw.) I actually think I might go do a dance. Also, they paid me! So maybe I’ll do a dance on the way to deposit this check.
I feel like a real journalist! Yeehaw!
