Queer Stories: Writing Our Way Into Belonging
The Queer community has gained a measure of acceptance over time and also been dealt crushing blows in today’s sharply divided world. Queer literature allows us to tell our truths, our stories that show who we were, are, and hope to become. Four authentic and sometimes uneasily honest Queer voices have given us Endpapers, Another Appalachia, Red Clay Suzie, and Everything I Learned, I Learned in a Chinese Restaurant – books that show our power is more in how we receive ourselves than in how the world receives us. Join us for an empowering conversation about what it means to live fulfilled lives as our true selves in a world that, even today, does not fully embrace or understand us.
Panel: Neema Avashia (she/her), Jennifer Savran-Kelly (she/they), Jeffrey Dale Lofton (he/him), Curtis Chin (he/him).
