Thanks so much for stopping by. The Hop Against Homophobia, Biphobia, and Transphobia (HAHABT) was created to spread awareness and stand together as a writer community against discrimination of our works.
Did you know May 17th is the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia, and Biphobia? Check out this link: http://dayagainsthomophobia.org/
The subject touches me. We’re talking about basic human rights. I usually try to respect everyone’s right to have an opinion, but opinions that hurt or scorn another person for any stupid reason light my fuse.
I started writing my erotic multi-partner novel High-Risk Fever in March 2013. At the time, it was just intended to be a sexy story, but the influence of real-life events caused it to be so much more. The ongoing Marriage for all debate in France, with its massive demonstrations and furious arguments on all sides of the political spectrum, was seriously bugging my mind and plaguing my conscience. It was constantly on the news, my surroundings kept bringing up the topic, and I tired myself out arguing and condemning. When the debate reached the grotesque point of questioning gays, lesbians, and bisexuals’ rights to have children, I decided keeping my opinion private wasn’t enough. I had to do something more concrete and lasting on a public arena. My erotica novel became my channel, and I used every opportunity offered by the plot to voice my GLBT-related messages.
So the book isn’t only “hot, hot, hot” as one reviewer said, it’s also an angry socio-political statement!
My HAHABT prize is a signed paperback of High-Risk Fever (more info about the book here). For a chance to win, leave a comment in the section below on how you voice your indignation or spread awareness.
The contest ends on May 24th. I will both announce the winner on this page and contact him/her personally, so don’t forget to add your email addy 🙂
