5 Random Things Graphic with Rhianna Grant

5 Random Things is our way of helping readers to get to know top sapphic book authors all the while having a bit of fun.

Here are five random facts about Rhiannon Grant.

1. I was called a TikTok legend in the minutes of Britain Yearly Meeting, the annual gathering of almost a thousand Quakers from around England, Scotland, and Wales. To be fair, this came from the 11 to 15 year old group, not the adults!

2. I finished reading Lord of the Rings for the first time before I went to secondary school (so before I turned 11). At the time everyone around me took this for granted and I only realised it was unusual when I heard other adults calling it a difficult book to read.

3. I like to hand sew patchwork made of hexagons, but it’s very slow indeed – my wife asked me to make her a duvet cover and I’ve started, but told her not to expect the finished product for at least ten years. I started the previous one around 2002 and finished it in 2018.

4. I came out to my grandparents when my first lesbian novel was published. It hadn’t been a secret before, but they hadn’t fully absorbed the message – apparently my grandfather read the story and phoned my mother to say, “I think I understand now!”

5. I wear a hat, and people often ask me why, but I don’t know. It’s not a religious thing or a modesty thing, it just… feels good. And that’s all I can tell you.

Meet Miki!

Meet Miki! Miki is absolutely beautiful and was submitted by Jessica, a reader.


It can seem sometimes like all the news these days is bad. We won’t deny there’s a lot of troubling things going on, including a rise in hate crimes. But it’s not all terrible out there! We want to do our best to highlight good news, because while it may seem like the world is filled with hate, there are many individuals who are living their best lives with a rainbow in their heart.

This week’s good news is about a brother making amends to his sister.

Marshawn Lynch, a former NFL player, plays a clueless teacher in the new movie Bottoms. When offered the role, he was hesitant to accept because back in high school, when his sister came out as queer, Lynch didn’t handle the news well.

He came to realize this role was a way to right a wrong. And what a way to own up to one’s faults.

You can read more about it here.

That’s all for today.

Wishing all of you a wonderful Friday!
