Twice a finalist for the Lambda Literary Award, Shraya’s new novel (Arsenal Pulp Press, 2014) is this year’s finalist for the award in bisexual fiction. It is a contemporary love story juxtaposed with a re-imagining of the Hindu mythology of Shiv, Parvati, and Ganesh.Shraya is a musician, performance artist, and filmmaker as well.This grew out of a piece entitled “Parvati’s Song” in the first draft of the book, that readers of this draft seemed to connect to.At first, I was resistant to exploring this further in the second draft, as I wasn’t sure if the mythology was being exotified by white readers.Premium features also remove in-app advertisements as well.The premium features are priced lower than competing apps, because we want everyone to enjoy the full features of the app at an affordable price.We are unable to assist you with any information regarding this release.

BM: What queer mythology had a significant impact on defining your queerness? They reflected to me a familiarity that I was not seeing anywhere else, which is perhaps why queer mythology is important in general.

BM: How can queer writers claim a right to queer and non-queer interpretations of religious texts?

But it’s always valuable to consider the feedback, even if I don’t agree.

In the end, the Hindu mythology narrative became an important counterpoint to the contemporary love story narrative, to explore further the themes of love, transformation and embodiment. By definition, they might not be “queer,” but as a queer brown kid without queer brown role models, the Hindu male gods, with their long hair, jewelry and softness, provided a sense of comfort in myself.Are there aspects of Hindu mythology that fascinate you and that you felt provided a framing device for this novel?
