ARC Review: Queerbaiting and Fandom: Teasing Fans through Homoerotic Possibilities by Joseph Brennan

our favorite beautiful lesbian couple

I knew I had to read this book as soon as I saw it on Netgalley. I’m a bisexual black woman active on social media sites like Twitter and I see and hear about queer baiting quite often.

There are several shows that do this kind of thing and when you’re looking for representation of who you identity with as a person it can be frustrating if not downright insufferable to see these occurrences. 

I loved that this book went deep into this exact problem in society and discussed several recent instances of it. Although we are growing and learning everyday as people it is important that we realize the harm that can come from these practices. 

This was a great, quick, and to the point read which highlighted these issues and hopefully as a society we can grow from it.

Thanks very much to Netgalley and the publisher for my copy of this ARC.
