*All Reading Queer events are open to the public regardless of ability to pay, sexual orientation, gender, race or any other form of identification. However, our workshops are safe spaces for all queer-identified people and are specially designed to address the writerly needs of marginalized communities who have been denied a voice. Come as you are. Write like never before.
