Reading and Supporting Black Queer Authors

This isn’t a standard episode – instead it’s a miniscule sampling of queer works by black queer authors. We want to highlight them. There’s no need to press play, unless you want to listen to these titles and authors being read aloud. We just wanted to get your attention.

 

To begin, all links are through http://bookshop.org – an organization that allows you to order online and support your local indie bookstore. We suggest also looking to see if your purchase can support a black owned bookseller or initiative.
