Community description:Discussions of queerness in Sherlock Holmes canon
A community for research/discussion of Sherlock Holmes and queerness.

Things that are on topic here include:

* history of homosexuality in the Holmesian era
* queer interpretations of the text
* reviews of related books/articles/etc
* close readings/recs/reviews of pastiches/fanworks in light of queer history/theory/etc
* investigations of gender/masculinity/etc in Sherlock Holmes
* forms of queerness other than homosexuality
* discussions of eg. orientalism, colonialism, class or other related subjects/approaches

All Sherlock Holmes books, movies, TV series, and various other adaptations and related works are on-topic.

Community activities:

* Bibliography/recommended reading/book reviews -- tag bibliography

Some online resources:

* Decoding the subtext
* Abbreviations of story titles

Rules/guidelines:

Citations: When referring to books/articles/etc, please provide sufficient bibliographic information to allow others to follow your references.

Not a slash community: This is obviously a fan-friendly community, but it's not a slash community. While many of us here are probably H/W slashers, this community is not the place to post your slash fiction/art/etc or general slashy squee. (We recommend [community profile] holmes_watson instead.)
