This is a group for anyone who identifies as queer, is in their 20s or 30s, and wants to join a book club! We'll read one book each month that features a queer character. There are lots of book clubs in Victoria, and some queer get-together meetups, but there isn't a book club just for queer people. So now there is! :)
Here are some ideas I had for books- The Song of Achilles (Madeline Miller), Fun Home (Alison Bechdel), anything by Sarah Waters, Rubyfruit Jungle (Rita Mae Brown), Why Be Happy When You Could Be Normal (Jeannette Winterson), etc. If you know a good book please suggest it! I'm also super interested in meeting up with rad queer folk who want to companionably work on their own writing together, which is something that could happen in between book club meetings.
I'd love this group to be as welcoming and inclusive as possible- if you have any concerns about coming to a book club meeting, send me a message and we can talk about it. We'll start each meeting with a land acknowledgment and go from there.
