Poets of SMITTEN speak: Katherine DeGilio


There are many forms of sexuality. As there are many forms of unique persons in this world. The commonality is our human-ness and ability to love.

Katherine DeGilio is a part-time writer and full-time bisexual from Virginia.

Do you find any stereotypes in lesbian/bi work that you would personally remove? 

The over-sexualization of LGBTQ+ women is definitely an issue. There is a stigma that LGBTQ+ relationships are inherently dirtier than straight ones, especially when it comes to woman loving women. It is hard to find examples in the media of women who love women that aren’t sexualized. I think this book, in particular, does an excellent job of keeping the love without the erotica, which is a step in the right direction.
