As this book progressed I began to wonder wither or not bong had a mental illness, and if it was a metaphor for him being gay. I believe this because Clift was someone that Bong could talk and confide in, but when he got older and met Logan, his boyfriend, the need to talk to Clift began to fade.

• When he first met Queequeg, Ishmael was repulsed by this tattooed savage. Strangely enough, as Ishmael got to know Queequeg, Ishmael realized that Queequeg was actually quite hospitable and kind and not as creepy as he may have appeared to be. It is funny how, according to Queequeg’s customs, he and Ishmael are married because they both smoked from the same tomahawk pipe, even though they had just met, introducing the idea of homosexuality to the story.

In return, Ishmael agreed to worship idols like Queequeg (in hopes that Queequeg would do the same with Christianity).
Alison Bechdel’s graphic memoir, Fun Home, is more than a detailing of her early life. Rather, it is an exploration of her home life, her family relations, and of being queer in a heteronormative setting, which, in retrospect, is further complicated and sometimes overshadowed by her father’s own queerness. The use of queer time and space, concepts articulated by Judith Halberstam in A Queer Time and Place: Transgender Bodies, Subcultural Lives, are used to vastly different ends by Alison and her father. While Alison grows into a queer setting and allows it to take root in her life, Bruce Bechdel is gradually undone by the choices he makes in relation to his secret queerness. In Fun Home, queer time and space prove to be as constructive or destructive as their occupants make it, especially in relation to Alison and Bruce.
Beowulf, a strong warrior from the tribe of the Geats, being a part of the gay community would be hard to believe. Although it is difficult to consider, applying queer theory to Beowulf is simple when the epic poem demonstrates various situations as to apply queer theory.

During one scene, the poet used "coded" language in a hetero culture to explore the heroism of the queer warrior.
