NONFIC Sex, monsters and bromance  
Title | Sex, monsters and bromance: Exploring the utopian carnival that is fan-created slash fiction and art
Author | Joseph Brennan (chewableprose)
Published in | DNA #132 — Australia’s best selling magazine for gay men
Summary | Described as “perhaps fandom’s most original contribution to popular literature”, slash is a form of fan-created media (including, but not limited to, fiction, video and art) centred on the erotic bonds between men. As a process that plucks characters from a heteronormative setting and imagines for them alternate sexual satisfactions, slash is more widely consumed and produced than any other queer process.
Featuring art by | texan_sol, tw_31988, chewableprose, demon48180, mythagowood and David Kawena

Cheers Gav, it seems to have stirred up a bit of a hornet's nest though, so I'm bracing myself for the shit storm. It amazes me how close-minded some people are, even within the gay community. Glad you like it though.

You have a pretty awesome job. Congrats on the gratuitous manflesh.
chewableprose on January 15th, 2011 11:14 am (UTC)
Hehe, indeed I do. Thanks for the congrats ;).
kolman8 on January 15th, 2011 11:16 am (UTC)
And good luck fighting the shitstorm. I'd buy you a shit umbrella, but I'm not sure if they exist. :P
chewableprose on January 15th, 2011 11:39 am (UTC)
Hehe, thanks, will probably need something bigger than an umbrella though ;).

I love the article ^^ Good luck with the shitstorm that is coming your way.. Congrats on getting it published XD

Thanks for the support Natasja, I really appreciate it. The more controversy the article stirs up, the more evident it becomes that the world is not as open as we would like to think.
natasja92 on January 15th, 2011 02:34 pm (UTC)
Indeed, I think it's sad that the world isn't as accepting as we want it to be about these kinds of things.. There still is a lot that needs to be changed in this world..

Is there fallout besides what is on LJ? It's a good article I think.
chewableprose on January 15th, 2011 12:49 pm (UTC)
Nah, it's been totally fine, I'm sure there won't be any dramas, I'm very happy with it. Thanks for your kind words.

Absolutely fantastical man. Thrilled to be apart of it and you've got me giggling. Some how I heard Bobby say "There's a shit storm coming...."

chewableprose on January 16th, 2011 12:56 am (UTC)
Hehe, thanks Mythago. Yeah, that would be something Bobby would say, would be very appropriate too ;). Thanks for being involved, and stay true to your work, you have many fans.
