A. R. Pip


A. R. Pip (she/her) is a somewhat private person who is bisexual and was part of the LGBTQIA+ community way back when there were only four letters and marriage equality was a distant dream. Pip believes that transgender rights are human rights and she hopes her readers feel the same.

Pip is a PhD trained scientist. Her previous publications were papers (and one very long thesis) on obscure topics in the field of DNA repair and replication. After she developed a chronic illness that made her bed-bound, she realized that, thanks to the modern internet, she could endlessly indulge her curiosity about LGBTQIA+ history. Molly House is the result of her explorations of the research of academic scholars who study LGBTQIA+ history. Pip has a tendency to give random and unprompted lectures on academic topics, and her friends have probably enjoyed this obsession more than any past one.

Pip is now engaged in reading on the topic of smuggling in England, in the hopes of some day writing a novel about a ring of smugglers operating in southern England around the year 1800. Will there be LGBTQIA+ people in that smuggling ring? Of course. Because we belong in every kind of story.

It is 1816, the midpoint of the Regency Era in England, and there are tens of thousands of men in London whose lives are considered too "degenerate" to even mention in polite society. Their vibrant and defiant culture exists in the shadow of laws that make love a crime punishable by death. Welcome to a Regency world that Jane Austen never knew. Welcome to the world of the molly house.
