Unnameable Books

Afterparty at Soda Bar

From 2010-2019, the Queer Issue has given a platform to 89 queer writers from 48 countries writing in 32 different languages, from Arabic to Serbian to Spanish to Thai. Many of these writers were given their first exposure to English-language readers in this issue, and some are not free to discuss their queerness in their home countries or languages.

Help us close out Pride month with a celebration of the Queer Issue. Refreshments will be available. After the reading, there will be an afterparty at Soda Bar across the street.

This event is free and open to the public, but we will ask for a suggested donation of $5. All proceeds collected will be donated to All Out, an organization fighting for queer rights worldwide.
