Joseph R. G. DeMarco lives and writes in Philadelphia. His love of mystery led him to create Marco Fontana and the world he lives in which is strikingly similar to Philadelphia's gayborhood and yet, it isn't the same.

Several of his stories have been anthologized in the Quickies series published by Arsenal Pulp Press, in Men Seeking Men (Painted Leaf Press) and in Charmed Lives (Lethe Press). His essays have been published in anthologies including Gay Life, Hey Paisan!, We Are Everywhere, BlackMen WhiteMen, Men's Lives, Paws and Reflect, The International Encyclopedia of Marriage and Family, the Encyclopedia of Men and Masculinites, and The Gay and Lesbian Review Worldwide among others.

He has also written extensively for the gay/lesbian press and was a correspondent for The Advocate, In Touch, and Gaysweek. His work has been featured in The New York Native, the Philadelphia Gay News (PGN), Gay Community News, The Philadelphia Inquirer, Chroma, and a number of other publications.

In 1983, his PGN article "Gay Racism" was awarded the prize for excellence in feature writing by the Gay Press Association and was anthologized in Way Are Everywhere, Black Men, White Men, and Men's Lives. He was Editor-in-Chief of The Weekly Gayzette, Editor-in-Chief of New Gay Life, and has been an editor or contributing editor for a number of publications including Il Don Gennaro, and Gaysweek. Currently he is the Editor-in-Chief of Mysterical-E (www.mystericale.com) an online mystery magazine.

A long time activist in the gay/lesbian movement in Philadelphia, he participated in organizations which helped to make this city the gay-friendly place it is. Among other achievements, he is a founder of the gay community center which still thrives on Spruce Street.

AUTHORS EVENT: Dear Sister: Letters from Survivors of Sexual Violence
Penn Book Center, Friday, December 5 at 6pm
Join us for a discussion with editor Lisa Factora-Borchers and contributor Aishah Shahidah Simmons of Dear sister: Letters from Survivors of Sexual Violence from AK Press. The event begins at 6PM on Friday, December 5th at the Penn Book Center (130 S 34th Street)! From the publisher: It wasn't your fault; it was never your fault. You did nothing wrong. Hold this tight to your heart: it wasn't your fault. At night when you lay there and your mind fills with images and you wonder if only, if you had . . . if you hadn't . . . . Remember: it wasn't your fault. Dear sister shares the lessons, memories, and vision of over fifty artists, activists, mothers, writers, and students who share their stories of survival or what it means to be an advocate and ally to survivors. Written in an epistolary format, this multi-generational, multi-ethnic collection of letters and essays is a moving journey into the hearts and minds of the survivors of rape, incest, and other forms of sexual violence, written directly to and for other survivors. Dear sister goes far beyond traditional books about healing that use "experts" to explain the experience of survivors to the rest of the world. Here, we learn what the world looks like through the eyes of a survivor. From a professor in the Midwest to a poet in Belgium, an escapee from a child prostitution ring, an advocate in the Congo, and a sex worker in San Francisco, Dear sister touches on issues of feminism, love, disability, gender, justice, identity, and spirituality. http://www.akpress.org/dear-sister.html?___SID=U
