Is The Red Journal #OwnVoices?
Is it #ownvoices (#OV)?
I’m bisexual, lived in Calgary, and thought I might be a girl once. There’s elements of my own self in this piece, though I hesitate to call it specifically #OV because of a number of other things.
For example, I’m ace-spectrum as well as bisexual. I no longer live in Calgary. I no longer think I might be a girl. Do these things disqualify The Red Journal from being #ownvoices? Probably not. I’m not the ID police.
But I think for now, it’s not exactly #ownvoices. It IS queer, a love story, and set in a place dear to my heart. But it’s not #ownvoices because it doesn’t describe my own voice any more.
Still, I hope this is a story everyone can enjoy!
