Queer voices are a novelty in the literary canon, but aren't exactly hard to come by. Writer Maura Lee Bee discusses how, if we pay attention to these voices, we can connect with the characters and each other on a deeper level.

Maura Lee Bee is an English and Media Studies major at Queens College. She is a writer based out of New York City with a focus on queer narrative. Her work has been featured in the How We See It... book series, a collection of independently published books whose proceeds benefit charities. With her theatrical background, she writes to stimulate the senses, often manipulating language and form in order to do so. She is currently working on a collection of poetry from the LGBTQIA perspective. She also works in advocacy, teaching people how to create safe spaces for the LGBTQIA community, as well as expanding the nonprofit theatre group she co-founded, NPTC.
