Twins and the ‘Gay Gene’ Debate: When Queer Comic Fiction Meets Behaviour Genetics

  • Juliana de Nooy


Reunited twins may be a news story, but they are hardly a new story. The minutiae of lives — habits found to be shared, extraordinary parallels or contrasts in experiences — may differ from case to case, but the tale is predictable enough to be parodied, an opportunity taken up by Robert Rodi in Drag Queen (1995). Queer rather than quirky, conspicuously comic, the novel puts a gay spin on the long lost twin tale, putting its characters in a spin in the process.
