Why Gay Pride & Prejudice, you might ask? Well, as a long-time Jane Austen fan, I was fascinated and only a little bit nauseated by the release a few years ago of a variation onP&P featuring ninja warriors and the living dead. Soon after reading an article on the literary mashup phenomenon surrounding Austen and other classic authors and historic figures, I found myself wondering, “If zombies and vampires, why not gays and lesbians?” 

This made me smile. 🙂
