Literary Laureate

It was noted that Kay Ryan was named the new US Poet Laureate. She has a slew of awards, including ones from the NEA and the Guggenheim. She's spoken highly of and congrats goes to her!

And she's a LESBIAN!!!

I love it when queer people get sh*t like this. It gives me hope that the WORK, not the sexual orientation is most important.

I agree. I agree. I do believe, truly, that "post-queerism" is right around the corner.

She's an amazing writer. Very deserving of the title.

Personally, I hope it's a sign that the gay mafia has finally intimidated the right lit world bigwigs.
