From the Editor: Nonbinary x2 (or more)

Jun 14, 2019 | 2019 Summer - Nonbinary x2 (and more), Editor's Note

Dear Reader,

The theme of this issue is “Non-binary x2 (or more).”

We are pleased to present you with writing by Denarii Grace, Talitha Milroy, Emily Fisher, Sarah Jen, Christi Sessa, Natalie Perry, Mariah Cruz, Buffy Lee, Lila Hartelius, and Tania Israel.

And this time around we have not one, but TWO “Around the World” interviews. Carla Imperial interviews Rhye Labrador from the Philippines, and Katelynn Bishop interviews Bree Mountain from Australia.

Casey Lawrence writes about Ursula LeGuin’s 1969 classic, The Left Hand of Darkness without which, she argues, “discussion of gender in science fiction is complete.” And Robin Renée reviews Jan Steckel’s latest poetry compilation, Like Flesh Covers Bone.

You will also find artwork by Jo-Anne Carlson, Why Not Both Co, and Emily Fisher, advice from A Rose Bi, and our calendar of events.

I’m pleased to announce that our new Etsy shop—the proceeds of which support the production of this publication—is doing well. We just made our 150th sale! Visit us at

We offer this resource for free, but it costs a considerable amount to produce and mail BWQ. If you find value in these pages, please consider giving a one-time gift at or becoming a monthly sustainer.

~Robyn Ochs
