About

My name is Danika and I love talking about queer women books on the internet. I’ve been running the Lesbrary, a bi & lesbian book blog with about a dozen contributors from all over the world, since 2010. I also run the tumblr Bi & Lesbian Literature, and I’m a contributing editor at Book Riot, where I make weekly videos. I already talk about queer women books in basically all of my free time, but I’d like to do even more of it, which is why I have a Patreon.

My dream is to be able to devote more of my time to promoting queer books, including more reviews, videos, and discussions posts. For years, I’ve been slowly researching and working on a project called Lesbian Literature 101. I want to outline the history of queer women books in an accessible way, because I have found that this history is often erased and hidden. I love this project, but it is very time-consuming, so I haven’t been able to move beyond the research stage yet. If we can reach $500 a month, though, I will be able to carve out time to start making monthly Lesbian Literature 101 videos!

Along the way, you can also get lots of fun benefits, including access to an exclusive Discord, where we can all chat books! For $25 a month, you can get a queer book in the mail every month! $5 and $10 Patrons will also get some queer books in the month throughout the year. After we pass the $200 mark, I’ll start having Patrons vote on a book you’d like me to read, and I’ll make a reading vlog about it!
Goals
$351.89 of $500 per month
I begin to post monthly Lesbian Literature 101 videos, where I explore the history of sapphic lit. This is a project I have been researching for years, and I'm excited to share with you some of the hidden and forgotten history of queer women lit!
