E.B. Boatner reviewed Queerly Beloved for Lavender Magazine's Pride issue, writing that our use of creative non-fiction in writing our memoir gave a method of "approaching in increasing increments, the truth." And he calls Queerly Beloved, "A remarkable journey of love and self-realization, a reminder of our connectedness."
Here is the entire review:
"After fifteen years together as an activist, lesbian couple–Diane and Suzy Anderson-Minshall–Diane’s wife announced, “I think I’m really a man.” Eight years after that statement, the two have written a joint exploration of how their relationship survived this sea change. Jacob-née-Suzy explains, “We chose a style of writing called creative non-fiction,” that allowed the use of elisions, dialogue reconstructions, anda method, like the calculus, of approaching in increasing increments, the truth. Alternating sections, Jacob writes of his transition, and Diane of her heroic efforts to assist and adjust. Both still work in the GLBT media, not all members of which have been forgiving to a lesbian married to a man. A remarkable journey of love and self-realization, a reminder of our connectedness."
