WHY IS READING QUEER VITAL FOR THE COMMUNITY? “Literature saves lives. As queer writers and readers we know this from personal experience. By inviting us to expand our sense of self to include the experiences of others, reading also lays the foundation for the building of strong and lasting communities, queer and otherwise, based on mutual care, respect and understanding. Writing, on the other hand, invites us to explore and create new possibilities for being and becoming in the world. The blank page can be a promise of new beginnings in a world eager to foreclose them, an invitation to take charge where we feel most powerless.” –José Portela, Reading Queer Program Director.
HOW YOU CAN IMPACT CULTURE FOR THE GREATER GOOD: Come to our readings, writing workshops and the annual festival. Read a great book. Write your story. Share with your friends and family. Hey, even make a tax-deductible gift in any amount through our fiscal sponsor The Miami Foundation.
