LGBTQ+ book club

We discuss books with LGBTQ themes, and try to incorporate as diverse a range of LGBTQ authors as possible. GCN were kind enough to interview me about the book club, where I discuss this in more depth.

Since our first meeting in January 2019, we have discussed books such as Fun Home by Alison Bechdel, The Argonauts by Maggie Nelson, and Dante and Aristotle Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Sáenz.

If you want to start your own LGBTQ book club in your area, I am happy to talk to you about how I (and my wife) got this one started: feel free to message me through this website. I have also put together discussion questions about all the books we’ve read so far as you can see below.

Everyone is welcome, and we maintain a safe and respectful space. Please feel free to come along to the group any time, or to message me if you’d like to discuss attending.
