Please Don’t Kick Me Out – Season 2 – Episode 2 – The Importance of Queer Themes in Young Adult Novels With Author, Joseph J Jordan

Oct 4, 2021 | 0 comments

This week’s episode features Joseph J Jordan, a UK-Based author, and creative. After a year of trying to get used to the new normal, living in a COVID world Joseph took the leap into the unknown and began a journey that would change his life forever. He first put pen to paper so-to-speak in January 2021 and the story of The British Empire of Magic begun. The story of Prince Jacob living in a world of magic and wonder with his partner Elliot. Jacob has his trust shattered by his mother, the Queen as the return of his oldest friend changes everything when he reveals a shocking truth and the race is on to stop a war that could destroy both the magic and human worlds. Having Prince Jacob the protagonist as a gay man and in a relationship within the story resonated deeply in the LGBTQ community and the importance of inclusion and representation in an 8+/YA/Adult reader base was sadly something very rare within the fantasy genre. This indeed caused imposter syndrome, but also became a champion flame for him to keep writing.
