Junot Diaz on Race and Masculinity

A Master List of Dead Fictional Lesbians

Well, from TV anyway. 

Want to include a lesbian in your work, but worried a happy ending for her might scare away your American morals readers from the Midwest with the idea that Sin can have Any Wages but Death? Consider an out of left field murder at the last minute! Reinforce the inherent tragedy of aberrant love. Let a lesbian out there know you believe in her right to exist beautifully and temporarily, like one of those insects that climb upward through the dirt for the better part of a decade to mate once under the silver pull of the moon and then litter the ground with their dead husks. I'm sure she'll totally appreciate it.
