There’s a reason why so many people still debate the Bible, research the history of Greek myths, and resurrect the pagan beliefs co-opted by organized religion. These stories are filled with characters who’ve never gone away even in our modern times. Lunafly retells many of these stories, often through the lens of unbridled queer sexuality. Raymond Luczak rewrites legends from centuries past. Adam becomes our first homosexual and Judith embraces her own sexuality to free her people. Luczak strips away the obfuscations that have long cloaked the homoeroticism of Greek myths to reveal how many of us humans are still gods. Paganism is used to evoke the larger narrative that had existed long before Adam and Eve entered our consciousness.
Raymond Luczak is the author and editor of more than 25 books, including once upon a twin and Lunafly. His poems have appeared in Poetry, Prairie Schooner, and elsewhere. He currently edits the literary journal Mollyhouse. An inaugural Zoeglossia Fellow, he lives in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
