WHY USE THE WORD QUEER?
We use the word queer to encompass all forms of non-heteronormative relationships.
We understand that the word queer has a long history of being used in a derogatory way, however, in recent years it's a term that has been reclaimed by the community and is a word that is widely used to include all LGBT+ people.
Other options we debated while listing and categorising products on their LGBT+ representation included Sapphic, Achillean and Diamoric. However, these are newer terms that many people aren’t familiar with and could make trying to narrow down what you're looking for harder.
The final option was listing m/m relationships as gay and f/f relationships as lesbian. However, we stock a lot of media with bisexual and pansexual characters and feel it would be wrong to categorise these characters as something they're not while adding to bi-erasure.
WHY IS THE ASEXUAL SELECTION SO SMALL?
Currently, there isn’t a lot of content created specifically with asexual characters in mind. The range of media with asexual representation is limited - examples include 'Black Wings Beating', 'Common Bonds' and 'How To Be Ace'. At the time of writing this, we stock a limited selection of Asexual media but we encourage you to have a look HERE.
As new titles are released over the years, we hope to stock more items with prominent asexual characters. If you have any recommendations of films, books or comics that you would want to see drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
