Guest Poet #1 — Judy Thompson

I’m currently working on four projects. One is research that I am getting ready to launch regarding mixed-orientation marriages. One is an article about biphobia (I’m about a thousand words in). One is taking a university’s Safe Space program to task for biphobia regarding their fallacious definition of bisexuality and how what they are doing is creating an unsafe space for half of their campus queer community by telling their bisexual students that they are transphobic by definition. The fourth involves some work in academia that I won’t discuss until it is public — it’s some very local issues that are linked to a role I have at my school.

One of the things that I am doing with this blog is boosting other’s voices. A few of my friends are poets (and by poets, I mean more than “write poetry”, I mean “craft and publish poetry in professional venues because they are that good”). There is a separate page here where I will be highlighting their work, as well as accepting submissions of poems from anyone who would like to see their work reproduced here. (I don’t guarantee all poems submitted will be printed — just the ones I really love.)

Today, on my Guest Poets page, I proudly and gladly present “Island”, by Judy Thompson. I think you’ll enjoy it.

Expect another wall o’ text on bisexual issues in the next couple days.
