Abstract

An exploration of modes of storytelling as they influence queer identification. In particular, an examination of the normative, Bildungsroman-like narrative structure of coming out and transitioning narratives and the import and implications of narrative for queer lives. Turning from this examination, an ethic of writing queer narratives through a more queer narrative structure is proposed. From this theoretical background Sometimes Y is presented? a compilation of short fiction and non-fiction stories that work to enact the proposed queer ethic of narrative.
