I’ve missed all of you in the time I’ve been away from The Queerblr. And lord was 2021 A Y E A R. But you all know that. What you don’t know is: Effective January 19th, The Queerblr will officially be back from hiatus!
Announcing a hiatus never feels good.
If you’re new here, you might not know that I am a sucker for fairy tales, especially when they are LGBTQ+ retellings of the fabled classics. If you’re an avid reader of The Queerblr, then you absolutely know how much of a sucker I am for fairy tale retellings!
